The Gray one looks great. The Yellow The only bike that ever looked good in Yellow was the old RM Suzuki.

I think the bike is good looking but not near as nice as the F800R.

Personally I love my bike and can't stop riding it. It does have a quirk or two but not nearly as many as my old 08 KLR. This bike just fits me much better and I love it.

Love that shot Dolphin... great light effect.

I second that. Mine has close to three thousand on the odo. In sixth gear the digital display sometimes reads 5th. I just keep an eye on the rpms to know what gear Im in. Anyway. ALL vehicles has their quirks. To say one is better than the other is absurb. There are lemons in everything.
