No rallies. Only done some training on a local motocross track nearby and some additional rides in the neighbourhood. He had planned to do some rallies, but family responsibilities came first so the bike is not much used.

My plan is to use it on Norwegian and Swedish gravel roads and do much long-distance gravel-touring here in Scandinavia. It sure beats the 800GS in action range and robustness for that purpose.

Since I ride all-year this will be my preferred ride for multi-day regional adventure-rides without requiring luggage capacity. I'll simply live in huts and other facilities along the ride and enjoy the extra range and robustness it provides.

I'll use the 650 Dakar for winter rides, the F8GS for luggage-requiring summer commuting/touring and the RR for those extended gravel sport rides.

Will do. I expect some suspension tuning is in order when I get it. Thanks for the headsup.
