I love the 800gs, and I love the 800xc...but sadly both have issues. The GS just has more that I wish they fixed for 2013. Makes me sad because I want one.
Joe, what bike do you currently own?
I had an F650GS twin I racked up 6k miles on during last summer and had zero issues with riding mostly road with some mild fire roads, then replaced it with an F800GS which I have been riding a 50/50 mix of off road on road with the occasional rock rutty stuff and it too has been flawless,
