new thread

happy to see that 'we' now have our own thread - great work, Mods, even though the April 01st date did give me cause to pause (before I suggested... Parallel Universe!)

Will be great to have a 800GS only thread!
Thanks, Mods.

Thanks for the great suggestion.


WRT the April 1 posting, you never know what's going to happen around here. Sometimes the best joke is the truth.

So you're the one who came up with it!

Great job I wish that I was that creative

And to the one who thought of putting it under GSpot

How long till the jealous haters show up ?

Great bike and the multitudes of owner's participating in refining them, benefits everyone concerned...
Congratulations on getting your own specific forum !

"Please use Beasts for F800GS related gab." in oilhead thread.
