Great to see guys getting out there on these bikes. Any word on how the F800's held up on these trips?

But perhaps you've missed my point: As nice as the F800 is, not everyone can afford to sacrifice a nice bike on long trip through 3rd world countries. World travel is tough on bikes .... it essentially eats a bike up. If you have the money to burn ... hey, go for it Good for the economy!

But many younger riders who travel (most are twenty somethings) prefer the low budget option. The KLR/DR/XR/XT all provide a viable alternative to cross continents. See the Sequin brothers ride report here on ADV:
