No really that is a point for the f8.
lol however at least when he gets off his f800 his ass doesn't feel like its being past around like candy at a prison..

Not to mention he will get off the bike about 2 hours before the g650 rider due to speed..

But the one denominator in this is you dont buy a bike to lay it upside down in the first place. But if you do, a wet weight of a G650 192kg (+ luggage) still isnt going to be light to pick up..

But if your riding a f800 that fr 230mm/rr 215mm suspension might give you the ground clearance/better travel you needed to not hit the rock that tipped you in the first place compared to the G650's fr 170mm/rr 140mm..
