The F800GS is not built as a supermoto bike, so how do you get your above statement from my statement "the F800GS is a big dirt bike"?

Of course supermoto bikes are not just "dirt bikes". I never said that. But my point was that the F800GS was designed to live as a big dirt bike, not a supermoto bike. For the amount of money you throw into a the F800GS to get it supermotarded, you might as well just buy an actual whole used separate supermoto bike:

17" Excel front wheel
new front brake rotors for Excel wheel
supermoto tires
revised front forks to accomodate the smaller 17" wheel

You're talking thousands. Not to mention the fact that it will screw with the ABS sensor and computer. Yay.
