Wow!!

Can you give us more info on the build up? Like the single rotor conversion, what you did with the cockpit and, hmmn, maybe a little about the suspension?

Oh, and what race is that?

The bike's performance will only make a difference if you can get 100% of its potential out of it... Until you get there (we probably never will as we will not turn pro) enjoy your ride and focus on improving your skills on what ever bike you like

I dont know what you are referring to. As far as my personal skills, I am just fine tank you.

I dont see a high front fender to be that big of an issue. I am sure we could figure it out with a custom made bracket and a donor fender or something similar. A good radiator guard for extra insurance. I probably wont worry about extending the front fender out, but that is just me.

As far as the lines go, you dont need a kit. You get custom made lines from many sources, and they are pretty cheap. You can either "T" it or get a banjo bolt for 2 lines and route them both from the lever.

here is a relatively stock 950 ADV...
turning an 800GS into a race bike is a waste of time and money when you can just buy the KTM.

Once KTM gets that bike reliable then we will talk.

Good grief Charlie Brown!!!!! Hey everyone has a penis, OK.

What they did with this F800 is really fantastic. It stands on its own as a well thought out, nicely farkled motorcycle that none of you would say no to if offered it. It is not only a nice piece to look at standing still but actually goes.

Look at it on its merits and quit measuring each others peckers already!!!

None of us could drive an F1 car to its capabilities and most of us can't come close to driving to the capabilities of our cars parked in the driveway so get over yourselves already!

And as for the merits of longevity, maintenance free, lack of breakdowns, etc., you wish you could last longer too. Get over it!

I don't see anything my "relatively stock" F8 can't do in there if it were ridden by a rider with similar skills.

I can't do all that stuff because I've been riding dirt all of 3 months. Can you?
