Specfuckingtacular weekend

I've never broken so many things on one ride. Plus my head hurts, my right calf seems to have become a figure-8 knot, I lost a touring peg, and my right ear's ringing louder than ever. Somehow, I am...

Wicked Get the 8

You sound like you've been riding long and hard enough to handle an F800GS. I haven't ridden the F700GS, but did try its 650 predecessor as a loaner for 3 days, and was not moved by it; it's a great...

I looked at the EO9 for the rear, too, but the man at MX1 talked me out of them, due to them dying an earlier death. Let us know how they last.

Anyone try the Sava tires on an 800GS yet? I want a mud-worthy knobbie that lasts 10,000km, even though I'm damn impressed with my Mitas combo, EO7 rear, E10 front. Got 13,000km on them. The front's...
