I did notice that my F800GS needed a bit of time for the suspension to break in, so I reserve my judgement.
I know someone who is buying one, so when its run in I will ask for a ride and see what its like!
I do have to say that I am still happy with my farkled 800GS (might do a bit more work on the forks though
) so I won't be changing in the near future.
