Have a WR250R and an F800Gs

For me its the perfect combo. I do ride the WR daily for short trips less than
100 miles, WR feels Like 1/2 the weight of F800GS.

Atlanta to Seattle last year and I actually prefer the F800 over a former 1200GS.
See a nice dirt off road trail, take it. Would not do that on the 1200, due to weight and expense.

Service on F800GS: I buy oil filters from Autozone for 1/2 what beemer charges. Air Filters I buy on eBay. Only thing I don't want to deal with is valve adjustment and tire changes, I can do pretty much Any thing else..not rocket science. Valve adj and tire change ...take it in and wait for it. said plan on a $2,500 for a real seat, windscreen, rear rack and probably hard bags. I like my Jessie's.

F800GS little difference except weight....if I wanted a bigger bike I'd have stuck with the 1200GS. I do think you will find the F800 HOTTER on the legs than the WR250.

People all over the country buy the F800Gs's and find it too tall, or bike is not for them. I found one 7 days old 256 miles on the odometer (guy found it was too tall for him)....and i saved $2 ,000 off retail.

Like the F800Gs but love the little WR250R.
