Some more eye candy of the F800 R getting used in touring mode, and our first night sleeping under the stars next to it in Death Valley...
After taking Nancy to a few campgrounds reachable on tarmac, she said " I didn't ride all this way to camp right next to someone!"...
That's my girl!
So we finally got the 800R's dirt riding cherry broken. Air pressure down to 25PSI and away we go!
From race tracks and canyons to gravel roads and long miles, this little Roadster is showing it's wide range of uses, just like it's big brother.
52 MPG average on this short 750 mile trip, even after dropping the front sprocket down to 19 from 20 teeth.
With campfire lighting, some of the less obvious lines come out.
After some instruction of staying on the throttle, she made it up this rocky hill!
