Bought an '08 Comet 650.  Rode it pretty hard from day 1.   Took it from mid-west to California and back this past summer.  Took the back-roads, never missed a beat, now has 10,546 kms.  Getting ready to winterize.  I find this little machine lots of fun, amazingly comfortable, excellent for carving up the roads in the Missouri Ozarks.   Mileage ranges from 43mpg riding into full wind to 56mpg with wind behind on good surface.   And I just had my 66th birthday.

Bonjour f.fx,
Nice photos of your bike on your photo gallery, real poster shots.
You do keep your bike nice and clean, in fact spotless.

I particularly like the re-upholstered seat you have, did you do this yourself or have it done?
And so I have found and bought a new set of seats from ebay so I can re do the upholstery to something a little more comfortable for longer tours.

Where in France are you?
I will be heading over there in May for four months next year, and if I can find one I would love to get a GT650 like I have here in Australia.
Will be in Drome area mostly, dept 26, but plan to tour down to the med and follow the coast round into Italy then back up through the mountains and back around Geneva and then Lyon. Have a place just outside of Montelimar in the hills as home.

Oh, better reply to topic ....... Have GT650 naked 2008 model, just on four weeks now, only had 3400km on the clock when I bought it, have now clocked up an additional 1800km in my short time on a motorcycle and the machine goes like a rocket. These bikes seem to be a real head turner as well, it must be that V-Twin, I'm in love  :)  :)  :)

rockwallaby - time for morning coffee

Not trying to thread hijack, but pinched around here means you were on a stolen bike, so educate me if you would?

I bought an '07 model brand new, my clutch cable frayed after only about two months, the clutch basket retaining nut was loose and I'm having the same electrical issues that a lot of people are having.  The first two were fixed no problem, I'll have to wait to fix the third one until I get my bike back.  What it needs:

-New chain and sprocket
-jet kit due to the exhaust I'm using

Nothing major, no big problems as you can see.
