F800r

I bought my wife an 2012 F800R - I have a Speed Triple. She does not ride as much as me, so I ride the F quite a bit. I have grown to love that bike. It is so light and handles great. My Speed 3 has Traxxion front end and Penske shock - would love to do same later. Bags are great and heated grips are the hottest I have ever had on any prior BMW. We are at 5000 miles and have averaged -52 + mpg on every tank while railing in the mountains or burning interstate. It is the red/silver combo and I love the looks and design. Chain is better than shaft so that you can adjust gearing if desired. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gears - it is a torque monster. I would buy used and save some serious coin. RAC
