I'm starting to realize I'll still need some street capability, since on any adventure ride out here there is a lot of highway to link.
Has anyone ridden the 800GS and how was it on the highway, and off road for that matter?
I start reading this forum trying to decide between a BMW Xchallenge or the Husk TE610...... until I rode the 990.... couldn't be more satisfied.
Now i look back and cant picture myself with any other bike.
I haven't ride the 800GS, looks like a very good option.
