F800/650GS Ride Reports

Given that we have a new home, how about we spread the love by linking our adventures with our F8/6.5 bikes here.

I certainly like to read ride reports not just for the adventure but also for the bikes so it would be nice to have a place where all the ride reports feature our favourite stars.

I know some of you have done the TAT, CDT, Pacific Coast, Colorado, Alaska, etc....so here's another chance for you to share.

Great reading! We're up to 10 reports already.
