I've got an F800 and my uncle and cousin both ride a 990, so we switch around quite a bit.

In stock form the F8 is pretty dangerous when you try to go faster as it will constantly bottom (sooner than a 990 even with stock springs) and bounce you all over the place. Going slow it's not too bad though, somewhat plush and it does feel a bit lighter than the 990.

Once you upgrade the suspension to 950/990 level, or better, I find it quite a bit easier to ride off road, slow and fast.
