2011 F800GS made it through warranty

I was always horrified by all the "my bike is doomed" problem threads, so I figured I'd post a useless "no problems here" thread instead.

~25,000 miles - arctic circle, toroweap, death valley, various mojave trips.. a few other places. Admittedly it could explode next month, but, so far so good.

I love that color...mine is grey and I like it no doubt but that lava orange is frickin sweet.

Mine celebrated the end of its warranty by oozing from the valve cover gasket and weeping from the water pump.

Only had one warranty claim on my '09: left grip heater was intermittent. Pretty impressive I'd say given the mileage and hard use . Still have 2 yrs of extended warranty left

While I was busy reading posts, collecting spares and overprepping for our long trips all over NA, our 2 '09's were busy not failing. Barely a complaint. Weeping rock holes in the rad don't count and I still made it home 2 days later.

I'll have a hard time keeping a straight face trying to make a warranty claim on this one tho:

The 2012 is covered till April '15. Ah, it'll be fine.
