Given what it is though, the F800GS will impress even sport bike riders as it flips from one side to the other on pavement, and it’s 21-inch front wheel allows for similar east of guidance in the dirt.

I'll put a taller screen on and get a gel pack put inside the seat, which was the low one and even at 5'10" I needed the low one really.

They were great, and service and warranty work I had done at a different dealer were also spot on.

Really like the engine, nice delivery up to 5000 rpm, which is 80mph in top gear.

I find myself toying with the MPG readout, how high can I get it (109 mpg in 6th at 40 mph), how low can I get it (37 mpg excelarating to the red line).

How does it stack up against the rival KTM though?

Its sheer grin factor everytime I go out to do this.

BMW F800GS – In our opinion, BMW got the suspension right here in terms of the F800GS’s 9 inches/230mm front & 8.5 inches/215mm of travel rear offering. Today I spent two hours on the 800GS on a test ride and was definatly impressed. Took me a while to get used to it as first bike I've had with abs. I'd heard good things about the 800 GS. Price: Starts at $13,895 Okay, here’s what we think we know.. in order of starting price: *As far as we can tell, the Blackline and Trophy are exclusive to Europe. I hope they fix the issue on the '11 model #4. Compare it to a GSXR 600 on the turns, and you’ll be disappointed.

I'm tossing up between a BMW F800ST … Initially wanted a KTM 690 Enduro R, but were sold out everywhere so I tried a GS.

If you're so inclined, remember that many Riders book one of our, As perhaps a point of credibility, I/we have been offering the F800GS as a rental bike since it first came out in 2008, and the Africa Twin these past 2 years that it's been available. We dealt with valve cover leaks, air bubbles in the cooling system, voltage regulator issues (not an engine part) and lots of general annoyances. Plus, my new ride was delivered right to my doorstep! Unusually, for a BMW though, you’ll have to maintain a drivechain. The Africa Twin on the other hand, appeared and has felt balanced to me from the get go. I've had my F800GS for 11 months now and absolutely love it. Right. best : -engine / fuel consumption /low insurance bracket Even with my nearly 100lbs in excess of the average weight most bikes are built for, the stock suspension feels active instead of dead, and despite being heavier than the F800GS, the AT somehow feels lighter to me (more lively and active suspension.) That's nasty! The entire range gets new instruments which BMW claim are more easily readable. Includes: Everything from the base model.

The KTM – There’s nothing wrong with the KTM’s brakes, and they’re more than you need to stop quickly and safely.

Buying experience: I paid £8000 in October 2014, was 6 months and 800 miles old from a BMW dealer, with 18 months warranty remaining.

Use your cash offer as an online trade-in value. A fair old slope on the saddle ensures that your buttocks are inexorably tugged towards your shoulder blades unless you sit at the front of the seat, where the curve up to the tank hoists your uhm, nether regions, forcibly upwards and outwards. To sum up, if you want a lightweight alternative to the excellent GSA for considerably less money this is the bike.

(Side note: Apparently BMW has followed Honda's lead with a 270-degree phased crankshaft system for the new F850GS coming out, so I guess I'm not alone in this "pulsation" matter.)

Bought mine (well, borrowed really, it's on a PCP lol) from BMW dealer with just 800 miles on it, in pristine condition.

Actually coming up a little short of the F800GS at 210mm of travel front & rear, an almost identical amount of ground clearance makes rocks and obstacles a pleasure to glide over.

Neither bike will be the best for all scenarios, but the charm of these big adventure bikes is that they're, Both tipping the scales at over 500lbs when ready to ride, neither the F800GS or Africa Twin will be a single-track Rider's dream come true, yet they can still be heaps of fun for some light tree-dodging and berm-riding on the local dirt trails near your home when the itch arises. Because you know, the important the things. It is just the kind of bike I was looking for...light, powerfull, good handling, good for long and short trips...I does everything and does it all well...besides, it's BMW.
