Well I'll chime in - I went on a ride out in black rock desert last August with me on my 990 adv with SPS suspension and another fellow on an 800gs. He had geared the crap out of it - like 16/47 I think. Anyway, there was nothing my 990 could do that his couldn't, and he got way better mileage and range than mine, and mine kept wanting to overheat.

I'm pretty big and the 990 fits me better than the 800gs, but I have to give respect where it's due and admit that 800 worked better than my 990 (I just went on a crazy modification/maintenance binge so hopefully I've addressed the overheating for once and all now...)
