is it worth it?

I'm looking at upgrading from my KLR sometime before the end of the year and I'm wondering - would you be better off getting a normal F800GS and using the extra money for farkles/suspension upgrade?

Seems 2013 800GS demos with around 1000K are available in OZ for around $17,500 OTR whereas I understand the OTR cost for the adventure is around $22,000.

I'm leaning towards the standard F800GS and using the difference to upgrade it. I think I'd prefer Altrider or TT stuff anyway and you can currently get more to fit the standard 800GS.

It seems to me the only things you couldn't add to a normal F800GS would be the larger fuel tank and the Enduro mode. Are they worth it?

Thoughts?

Cheers,

P
