For me, I draw the line at "going to make some stuff shake" though, when parts and fasteners fly off, all the bulbs continuously implode, and I'm a wimpering numb heap within a few city blocks...
Gazillions of happy owners sing the praises of their F800's and I wouldn't think to cast any untoward aspersions against them (the best forum on the 'net IMHO was the F800Riders.org, wonderful peeps there!) but *MY* F800ST was a hideous nightmare.
That's why I sold my Ninja 650R.. but the vibes there got worse as the
time went by and there's probably an explanation.. but I was dealing with
it for 2 years at that time and couldn't take it anymore.
Now it's either a V-twin or a I4.
