I'm disappointed with the highway and high speed performance of the GS 800, though it is better off road than the 1100 GS. I tend to ride 70-80 mph on the freeway with extended time off road on Forest Service roads. I am concerned about the fuel economy of the 990 but otherwise seems to fit the bill. Thanks Steve
Having never ridden the 800 I can't give you a comparison view.....but I'm sure it won't take long to get some opinions when you chose this section of the site to post the topic. Here's a question for you though....are you really going to pick a new bike based on the MPG? You'll probably change all those other things on the 990 too. Just sayin'
