Had my F800GS for 2 fantastic weeks

I havn't had too many bikes before, but test driven the 990, and 1200 advgs, and gs, but as soon as I heard the 800gs is coming I've put my name down. I realy strugle to get the smile of my face after 2 weeks.

On the way back from Hondeklipbaai in the West Coast in the pouring rain, and was that fun. There I appreciated the weight advantage of the 800GS over the Africa Twin or any other heavy bike for that matter. I must mention I've got huge respect for the Africa Twin.
