I liked everything about the 800GS, other than ride'n on the freeway.

[QUOTE=514Advrider]nothing else that would make me abandon my Tiger 955i. With a suspension update (shock and fork springs), I still prefer the Triumph over the over-sophisticated Ténéré.[QUOTE]


Even though you have not seen it live or ridden it yet.

I was waiting for someone with bike inferiority complex to post similar to what you have.


ooops, I was wrong:

Looks like basically a FJR assy. which is basically an older V Max assy. which is basically an old Venture assy. which is cool buy me considering they are reliable and stone simple.

My FJR has vover 70K miles and I'm not easy on it in the least.

wr250r owners talk about that.
that bike is heavy for a 250 on paper,
yet people say it rides/feels like a much lighter bike.

erik buell had it right all those years ago.

Unfortunately it's not much help if the thing is horizontal on a muddy track, and you have to pick it up.

Even though I wanted to replace my F 650GS with something more powerful, I am slightly scared of the weight...
I might stay with the 990 Adventure choice...

You need to round up these threads mate - it'll end up like the F800GS threads.
