Semper Fi bros..... No marine here but I love what you do!!!!
As far as bikes, I ride a F800GS but am planning I. Getting a GSA once I return from my next deployment. , contract work In Baghdad.
The F800 is nice and I have had mine almost 4 years, but I really want the added HP and stability if the 1200. I agree thatitneeds a bigger front wheel and I might tie the bulley and get a set of Woodies Wheels (21/18) as I am sure thatwill make the bike much better in th dirt!
Good luck and be safe!!!!
