Question Good Bike But $$$

Like most on here I think good bike but suspensioon needs to be sorted for the um Larger Rider? I ride like Snowy, what you guys in the US call Jeep/Fire Trails and have gone everywhere my Jeep 4x4 has gone. Single rider but about 115kg or 250+ pounds. Quite frankly I owned a 2002 F650 GS Dakar and rode that everwhere I have gone with the 800, for the $5000 more I paid upfront and suspension adjustments required since should have just got the updated (Damn near the Same) G650GS Sertao.

Don't get me wrong like everyone else there is something quite mystical about the 800 and I wouldn't swap it now I have it but time again I'm not so convinced I'd buy it.

PS: Odometer is 3600ish klm, 75% off road.

Cheers
