Great story and write-up. I've been mulling over whether to get the R1200GS or the F800GS for my stable. Maybe they're both too big? Anyway - I now know that it's not going to be the 1200.

I used to ride (> 30 years ago) a Yamaha RD50. This has about the same appeal (not to mention HP) of a g650gs. Don't do it - it's not a real bike. Instead it's a shameless cash-in on the BMW name
