My my how far you've come.

I haven't checked in on you for a few weeks you've gone a long way. I'm not seeing any snow in Hanoi actually looks like nice weather. Keep the ride side done brother.

Don't even try.

You know the old rule never talk about religion or politics. You can't win and you won't change hearts or minds.

I have both

Call me spoiled but I have both and I enjoy them. I wish I had more time to ride the DR400.

Sounds like you are coming over to the darkside

Like all motorcycle decisions there are compromises to be made, it seems to me like you've fallen for the F800GSA and I don't think you'll be disappointed.

New Ural options

No changes to current models in any way. Change is bad and technology is for Japan some parts of Europe and the USA.

Is this a fair verdict on this bike?

I have a friend looking to replace his worn out KLR. He has done serious long distance touring on his KLR 80000 kilometers and counting. If the Terra has crappy fuel range he won't buy it plain and...

Has anyone calculated the real world fuel range?

If the choice is as simple as which bike do I buy BMW F800GS or Triumph Tiger? Hell flip a coin and enjoy! If you an off-road bias buy the BMW if you lean toward pavement riding buy the Tiger......

Sorry don't like it.

You'll be throwing rocks and debris everywhere on the road and on the trail. Rain and wet conditions will be nasty.... There are reasons these things have fenders and it's not just to look ugly. ...
