I've got 18000 km on my XC now. I've ridden a good mix of asphalt commuting/twisties/offroad gravel, mud and sand. I absolutely love the bike. Its so capable in so many areas. It's been very reliable(except for the stalling issue). It's comfortable for long rides and works well offroad(for a 472 lb bike). You can load it down with luggage like an abused donkey and it still handles well. Fuel economy for a triple has been good(47 mpg average for trips). The power... Nuff said

I had considered the BMW F800GS. I bought the Triumph first then rode the Beemer after. After riding it...I knew I had made the right choice for my needs. It's a personal choice. Both bikes are in the same class but have a completely different feel to them. Ride them both..make your choice.
