800 GSA Reinforced chassis?
I have a question about the 800 GSA... looking at the propaganda, one of the main features is the "reinforced rear subframe" but I have not been able to find what exactly are the reinforced parts... maybe the rear shock bolt? maybe another type of welding? ...
I love to travel with my F650 Twin fully loaded (girlfriend plus luggage) so this is a very important point as I would like to exchange my 650 for a normal 800 or maybe the 800 GSA
Since de GSA is a high extra amount over the 800, maybe that "reinforcement" could be done in a normal 800 without expending too much.
(I know that 1200 should be better for travel... but I prefer the 800)
Thanks in advance!!! :)

The shock bolt has nothing to do with the subframe.
There are lots of people who have traveled long distance with passengers and too much (hard) luggage, and I've never heard of any problems with the stock subframe. Complete non-issue in my opinion.
Now the placement of the passenger pegs on an unsupported down tube and subframes getting bent in small crashes is a serious problem, but I don't think that's addressed on the GSA either.
