Crossed it off my interest list after the ride. Shame because I really wanted to like it.
I told the BMW dealer to call me as soon as they got an F800R in that I could look at. They did, and I was there that afternoon. Took one sit on the bike and I knew it was all wrong for me. Didn't even have to start it.
