Thanks for the input so far

Well from what I have heard and read. I have heard the triumph XC was a better choice than the f800gs.
So that is why I choose that bike for the 800 class.
My thoughts on the BMW 1200gs is really for the long trips I hope to take.

But I have to agree with Imychajluk. Because when I set on the 1200 gs a couple of days ago I could barely touch the ground. It felt bulky and when I revved the motor the motor torc would pull the bike to one side. Which really caught me off guard.

I am going to stop by the Triumph dealer Saturday to test ride the tiger. It is much more affortable and probably a better starter bike for me. So at this time I am leaning toward the xc800.

Thanks again for the input any more opinions are welcomed!!
Let's roll...
