Howdy all. Been a while since I've posted, but since moving to London a year and a bit ago I've been bikeless. Just picked up my new baby on wednesday, a BMW F800 GS (first one out of the dealers as well ) Weather's crappy at the moment, 5 degrees, rainy and windy, so I've only put on 30 odd miles on her. Also wasn't in the mood to play with Easter traffic on a new bike (plus not having ridden in almost a year). Hopefully tomorrow or Sunday weather will be good enough to go for a longer ride (and hopefully find a bit of dirt). Review wise need a bit more time, but she suits me perfectly. Seat position is high, but totally fine for me. Much easier to put on the centre stand than my former GSA. Only annoying thing is there is still weight on the front wheel when on the centre. Still keeping her under 5k rpm's, but she goes well enough for that so far. Haven't got her into 4th gear yet though Gearbox is much smoother than on my GSA. Also 100% fuel injection, so no choke. The 21 inch front wheel makes turning a little more gentle than aggresive, but I need some time on the twisties to confirm that. And I'm getting 35 mpg (roughly 14.6 km per l) in London city traffic according to the onboard comp. But I need more time in the saddle to confirm all that. Getting to the battery was a little painful. Had to remove the pretend fuel tank to get to it. But the onboard toolkit under the seat had all the bits to open it up, so in the field shouldn't be an issue. Adjusting suspension, clutch and brake levers is a piece of piece. Little dial to spin. And ABS kicks butt. Still waiting on touratech/bmw to come up with handguards & luggage. Both aren't scheduled for another couple of months.
