Simply a comment made in regards to the aesthetics of the motorcycle. Hopefully I'll enjoy mine as much as you do yours should I purchase one today.

Nice! Looks like you went for a fully loaded model. Wait until you start playing with all the modes and damping settings. That will keep you busy for awhile.

and really, the white ones handle best. Love the color (same as mine). the White matches the F800 30 anv I traded in, and the gray matches the 87 K100RS I had.

Thanks Gents! I do believe it to be fully loaded, and too very much love the looks of the motor....And yes, the modes are always fun to tinker with, but riding it up in the twisties far surpasses that! The guys at New Century really did a nice job of accommodating me by having all of the paper work already to go (i'm a past customer of theirs). A NAV V and BMW soft bag later and I was on my way.....Can't wait to get back on the bike, and to visit them for more goodies in the days and weeks ahead.

For the utility that it offers (great overnighter, light enough for daily use, and doubles as a passenger backrest) and it's relatively low price, I love it. I've used one before on my last GS hence the re-purchase.

Great piece of kit!

Awesome looking bike there. White with spokes does look good.

I have one as well, and its a great bit of luggage. Unless you plan on leaving the bike unattended, then you have to remove it and carry it with you.
