I have been thinking about the ST as a replacement for the f800.... i am thinking cheaper service to keep it running.. ie valve adjustments every 24000 instead of every 12000.

I would put it in the same class as the big GS, definetly better for two up than my Tiger.

RR, not sure on about the valve maint. The lack of chain matters a little, but not a breaker.

I was bored and I had some extra bacon laying around, so I decided to weave that shit up.

And then I cooked it, and it was delicious.

I do the simple maintenance like oil changes but the other stuff like valve adjustments every 12000 miles etc get to be pretty pricey.

I read that the ST is every 24,000 and I guess I am "assuming" from that, that the cost of ownership would be less for the Yamaha. The report that it weighs 100 lbs more than a 1200 GS puts be off though.

I also so many more yamaha dealers on my trip than I did BMW... in fact I didn't see any BMW.. makes you think when your a couple thousand miles from home riding solo about support. At one point I checked and the nearest dealer was over 300 miles away.
