I will not be "bashing" this bike over rocks and unforgiving terrain. At 61 I don't have the nerves I had at 30!!
Thanks for your help.
I'd say the only reason to get the 800 is if you are going to be bashing it over rocks or if you like winding out engines. I like low band torque and HP more than what's happening at 7000 rpm anyway, personally.
