Sigh, I wish I could have spared myself all the grief I had with my F800ST, with this amount of ease!

Strangely, it was the F800R that I sat on at the Bike show we had, that I went: "ooh! This feels good!" Possibly it was just after I had dislocated my wrists and strained the muscles in my neck after sitting on a Ducati, but it felt pretty darned good.

Didn't care for the looks though. Then sitting on the ST, the wheels began to slowly turn, and I thought if I could sorta duplicate the ergos on the R via riser/backs and lowered pegs put on the ST, it would be perfect.

Alas, the owning reality of horrible vibes, failures, poor quality, insane parts costs, and awful dealers I had to contend with, made for a total nightmare scenario.
