All these so called "issues" you speak of are so minor and trivial in the broader spectrum of things... Going on about 23k miles on the same seat and windscreen. I'm only about 5'7" though, if you're super tall then perhaps it might be an issue. Tire wobble is mainly on a set of Pirelli Scorpian tires. I ride Mefo tires at present and not experiencing tire wobble. Fuel economy... It's the fun factor compared to the fuel economy you should pay more attention to. Just me with panniers off I'm getting in the 40's mpg... As far as the shocks.... Having never ridden the 800 I can't comment on that. I do plan on changing out the fronts upon returning back to the states. They are adequate, but I think something a little firmer would fit the bill better. I do all the work on my bike myself so am not worried about the cost of repairs/modifications as much as if I had to take it in to the shop. Great bike, zero regrets, and glad I didn't choose a BM.
