Yup. Thanks for the call, I had just exhausted looking for your number. Solved it with a slide hammer cobbled together for $10 at Hemly Tool & Supply:

No I have a digital camera. Wife mentioned about me getting one, but can't justify it for a tag game. I had one a couple years ago, but it was terrible at phone reception.

Rock it old skool, man. I don't have a smart phone either; I do have a netbook I lug around in my tank bag from time to time and I use free wifi from the closest McDonalds to post a tag if I think there is an imminent danger of Brucing. Otherwise, it's home to post.

If the whole BMW line is as bad to work on or as bad as the X challenge I rode, I'm changing my tune on a possible GS or touring bike in the near future.

The 650 X challenge (I think it was an X challenge) I rode was one weird machine in the woods. I was hoping the guy I swapped bikes with would want his baby back but he didn't

I think fuel pumps have been rather problematic; perhaps some problems with wheel bearings, as well. Check out www.f800riders.org/forums for all the info you need on the F800GS. The forum has dedicated sections for each of the F800 models. I found it quite helpful when I owned my F800ST.
