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, 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.
