GS800 Forum

I love ADV Rider but does anyone know of a forum dedicated to the new GS800? If so, please post a link.

Thanks,
3rdGear

It's a bit rubbish though when all the threads are merged into one gigantic thread. You get the situation like we've just had where people are discussing one topic (in this instance oil) and other folk are considering that to be a discussion that's taking that thread off-topic.

Now that these bikes are almost onshore, it's time to stop the 'mergefest-o-rama'. It's no longer about press releases and rumors about specs. There are some real topics to discuss on these bikes and each topic deserves it's own thread.

I agree that the F8GS can stay in 'Beasts', but the merging has to stop.

It is almost impossible to research info about a particular bike, especially a popular one with multiple posts.

The main 800 / 650 thread has 300 + pages of posts. I've tried to review many of them and find this the most common post - "my bike's in the warehouse!" or "my dealer called and said it is delayed" etc... Chattiing is fine but this bike needs it's own subforum with thread categories such as engine, suspension, mods, etc.

The search fxn doesn't help. Try searching for bash plate for the 800 and you're pointed to the giant thread. Hope you have a few days to find your search item in there.

This is a great forum. I especially appreciate the friendly mature attitude. And there's fantastic info here, it just would be nice to make it a little easier to find.

Google, thx. Brilliant concept.

Since I was referring to organization and searching on this forum maybe you just proved my point?

I was responding to the OP, not to you. He was looking for a F800GS forum. I didn't read your post, so I have no idea if you had a point of not - I just thought a google search would be a start, as it seemed like the OP hadn't done one.
