new F800 GSA

Rode mine home this week and parked it next to the RT, best of both worlds now. The wind hasn't been under 25 mph this week so riding it instead of the RT has added new meaning to into the wind. It is a lot easier to maneuver and I think I"m going to like it. I had an F650 GS for a while and always regretted selling it. Oh yeah, my attack dog likes to ride on it as well. [/URL][/IMG]

So far. I've had the bike for a few weeks and absolutely love it. I'm leaving for 3 months in a week and a half (to Costa Rica).

Installed so far:

BMW hard cases.
AltRider bash guard and radiator grille.
Touratech kickstand platform, headlight guard and radiator brace.
Bags Connection Road bag, locking system, dual cig hardware (too small - need GSA specific bag).
Rear Fender inner-extender.
Wunderlich 20mm bar riser (Touratech risers didn't work)

Coming this week.

Garmin Montana GPS
Spot3
PDM60
Wolfman Med Expedition Dry Duffel and PacSafe 85

Hi MplsMoto
I'm wondering why you said the TT risers didn't work, as I'd thought about ordering some

"Wunderlich 20mm bar riser (Touratech risers didn't work)"

I couldn't get them tight. Wonderlich's were about .020 taller and snugged just fine.

There is a thread here about how to get them tight. Loose the spacers will help (or smth like that )

I am looking @ this model for a few months...

Currently I have a 2010 F800GS, 50.000kms done.
3 things are annoying: seat comfort, handlebar vibrations and windshield.

I checked today (visually) a F800GSA and: seat is changed, windshield is higher.

Does anybody knows about if they fixed vibrations that occurs around 5000rpm?

They have not, as that is a perceptual issue...... Take 10 riders, they will have 20 ideas of what vibration exist. I dont have any....( '09 8GS) my friend rode mine.....same.... he rode his..... a little he thought... I rode his... None. It's a ghost, AND a dirt bike, imho. So to answer your question, Nothing has been done to the vibration.

I changed from '08 F800GS to new F800GSA at June. I can confirm the seat and windscreen are much better.

Vibrations are the same as before, obviously there are no changes to affecting components. I have never found them annoying (or felt that "they should be fixed") on either model, but it's a perceptual issue as ebrabaek said.

I to can confirm the seat is comfortable the wind screen does a fairly good job for I am 6ft 1'' and I seem to have no vibration at all.

Okay guys, you convinced me: paid $500 deposit on Baby Shit Tan colour.

Traded-in my 50K 2010 F800GS. Good bike: no dramas what-so-ever ...

Too bad Garmin Navigator 5 is not available in Oz ...
