Like the whitham_wannabe above said, an F800GS on 17" wheels and sticky rubber would just be a giant supermoto and we know how much they piss off sports bike riders on track days. The 800 would also lean forever. I think it'd be a barrel of laughs.

AC Schnitzer displayed a SM'd F800GS at European Motorcycle Shows when the bike was first released.
Now that's a BMW!
So many 'supermoto' haters on here,once you go 17",you'll hate 21" like me.It'll improve handling
on the road immensely,your hooligan factor goes up 10 fold!(try find the two French guys on supermotos
on Youtube.....mental!).
