What will you post in 6 months time if you have no problems?

Personally, I love the bike and fully expect some issues, that's the nature of the beast.

Going on the sheer numbers of F800GS's being sold around the world(even Australia is buying 200+ a month), the actual real world numbers of problems is very very small and from some of what I have read and seen, some issues are owner induced.

Of the half dozen people I know who own them, nobody is having any issues that I know of.

Same can't be said of some other well selling bikes around at the moment!
The Internet is a dangerous place for paranoid people.
On the Guzzi forum I sometimes frequent the paranoia would increase a lot in the northern winter when people had nothing better to do than worry about what was wrong with the bike
