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.
Anyway, this is one hell of a story to leave to your children and grand-children - congratulations.
Personally, I've made a commitment to use the phrase "itís like Satan beat a ditch in the ground with his dick" sometime over the next 30 days. Well done.
