Changing tires is pain in the ass but at least now we have the process down.

Now the bike is starting to feel the millage on it. The steering is starting to shake as if the steering bearings need to be replace. I'm planning to tighten it a bit and see if that helps. The bigger worry is that engine head is starting to leak a bit of oil. Nothing major so far - there are not oil drops on the floor but one side is covered with oil and dust. I have read on some threads that is a common problem with the F800GS so I'm hoping it holds until I'm back in Europe and I can take it to a bmw dealer
