Sorry, bloody photobucket wasn't working on Firefox last night so couldn't upload pictures.

Here we go:

First I rode the F800GS.

It rode nice, very soft on the suspension...It felt just like a Big DRZ tbh, but with more go.
The gearbox was nice, the engine was good but had to be revved to get the best from it, the brakes were good, The seat felt like it had a lip or maybe a step around the front edge as it was digging into my inner thigh as I like to grip with my knees/legs (This comes from horse-riding), the clutch was heavy though (much heavier than my Fireblade) and had made my left wrist ache after about 30mins.

All in all I did enjoy it, I stayed out on it for about 45mins but by then then felt I'd had enough.

I did book a demo for the F650GS twin (to ride this morning) as this is slightly more road based but I'm unable to get across to ride it today so have just rang and cancelled that.

A big thank you to Paul at Bahnstormer Motorrad, A real pleasure to meet/chat with him again.
