What does an f800gs owner want for Christmas

What could we possibility want, do we not already have everything? Lest we forget the poor souls who do not have one. But I want new crash pants and ak-20's. And a pear tree
Merry Christmas. You're all the most meaningful anonymous friends a guy could ask for

Something just a little more dirt worthy, and lighter for when it falls over. There were a few trails that went up 30-40 degrees that I wanted to see where they went (trees on both sides, and a nice drop on one side) but the concern I had was a) the stock tires b) a dead end where it's difficult to spin around and c) falling over, again.

So I picked up a KTM 500 EXC.

Should give me a nice bit of coverage for the Western US.

Forks and motor tune is all that is left for me. Working two projects right now. Extended beak, and modified airbox cover with a few goodies incorporated.

A lighter, more nimble version....

Santa left a Husky TR650 Terra under my tree!

Oh my, this thing is good. Way better than I expected.

My F800 might be in trouble.

Thanks.
Totally worth it. I have TKC's and stock front forks; my bike used to feel pretty sketchy at 75-80 in traffic - just getting pushed around by wind too much. Scotts damper solved that. And to top it off - they have awesome customer service. I ordered the dirt (non-rebound) damper and didn't like it after a month of trying it out - still a little head-shaky on the freeway and had to turn it way down off-road or the bike got crazy in sand. Tallked to them, and they said "oh, well just send it to us and we'll see what we can do". Called back to check on what they could do and they had already shipped me out a road damper. Not their fault but they still jumped on fixing it. BTW: I love the road version both on-road and off. I run it a full turn out for the dirt and about 2 - 3 clicks (1/4 - 3/8 of a turn) stiffer on the road...
