What will you post in 6 months time if you have no problems?
Will you apologise for shit-canning something that YOU supposedly paid big money for?
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!
Sent you a PM as my post and further replies will just be a thread jack.
To sum it up. I never made any comment regarding price not sure where you got that. You post contains somes good trends in sales vs reported failures and personal experience which is reassuring. I'll be glad to eat my words.
