|Mr.Muscle!||All the numbers have a meaning in cars, their cylindric power or the model of the moto, I think that everybody knows that, even more, you can find the answer in the book of your moto. But your personal number of the moto is another story, there is a meaning for this. My number is 115 and it is having big importance, in case you want to know, I read about that on a site sunsigns.org, and I am afraid of what can happen if it is true. What do you think, maybe the meaning of may license numbers influence may life and the feature I'll have?|

|DenverDucati||Think I just answered my own question about the G650GS Sertão. Looks like it has a 21" front wheel, and they're spoked instead of cast, suspension travel is 1.5" longer, and a few other things. Sorry to get off topic!|

Good call on the wiki:
BMW Motorrad motorcycles are categorized into product families, and each family is assigned a different letter prefix. The current families are:
C series – Maxi-scooters called Urban Mobility Vehicles by BMW
F series – parallel-twin engines of 798 cc capacity, featuring either chain or belt drive. Models are F650GS, F700GS, F800GS, F800R, F800S, F800GT and F800ST.
G series – single-cylinder engines of 449 to 652 cc capacity featuring chain drive. Models are G450X (now discontinued), G650GS, G650 Sertão, G650 Xmoto, G650 Xchallenge and G650 Xcountry. The 450 cc engines are manufactured by Kymco in Taiwan. The 2009 and 2010 650 cc engine parts were manufactured by Rotax in Austria, with the engine being assembled by Loncin Holdings, Ltd in China.
R series – twin-cylinder boxer engines of 1,170 cc capacity featuring shaft drive. Models are R1200GS, R1200R, R1200RT, R1200S and R nineT.
K series – four-cylinder engines of 1,157 to 1,649 cc capacity featuring shaft drive. Models are K1200LT, K1300GT, K1300R and K1300S. In 2011, BMW Motorrad launched the six-cylinder 1,649 cc K1600GT and K1600GTL.
S1000RR – sport bike with transverse-mounted, 999 cc inline-four engine.
Just curious, do you know makes the G650GS Sertão better for off road than the other models? I've seen that in a couple places, but it's hard for me to tell what's different about it other than the accessories. There's a nice one local to me that I think I'd like to go take a look at.

|peregrine||Thanks for the help. I thought there would be some system to help me more about the bikes as I read the forums trying to learn more. 10 years ago when I bought my first BMW I didn't ask and it took a long time of reading forums and magazines to figure it out. I picked up the bike and took it for a quick 50 mile ride last night. Hard to believe it is mine.|

And then there "S" models as well. Those that end in S. Think "special" edition. Upgraded brakes, wheels, Ohlins suspension etc. I'm a fan of "S" models myself.
I'm also a huge fan of Ducati SS. Not the brown shirts, Super Sports. 900SS or even 1000SC, AKA Sport Classic. The nice thing about the Sport Classic was that it came with the 1000DS motor. The same year Hypers came with the 1100DS motor, basically a bored out 1000. The DS is "dual spark". Ain't it fun? Probably like learning English as a second language since well English doesn't make much sense at all.
