Either way, I'm busy in Long Beach that weekend :(.
Btich, please.

I would have to agree... be careful I hear skiing is dangerous! . will miss you Yeti!

I'm hoping to make it out to Warped again, still waiting to see if I'm working that weekend...

I couldn't agree more. I was quite disappointed with the F800ST, as well.

5 gallons of chocolate stout and 5 gallons of strong honey wheat beer are ready to go. Now I'm just hoping to finish the front end swap on my little DR in time for the event. If not, I might be borrowing a friend's plated Yammy 450. Either way, I'll be trucking beer down for you FFs.

As Young Ben pointed out to me yesterday, that bike was an 800S, this one is an 800ST.

On the other hand, I can borrow the tank off Ben's GSA so I won't have any fuel issues for our trip.

Yep, I had an F800S. It was fun. The R1200S was more fun. But, like you GimpyDick, I like to ride long distances on a fun bike. The F800S and R1200S were fun for around town, but impractical for carrying crap or riding long distance. The clip on bars and (almost) lack of windscreen saw to that.

So, the F800ST should solve those little quibbles. It's my "little boy's" version of your big bad FJR.

Plus 50mpg will be nice again. I use my bike(s) for about 90% of my driving these days.

And yes, Scott, you can indeed borrow my tank for the trip, as long as you agreee to wrap it in 3" of bubble wrap and keep it that way for the duration of the ride ...

No, don't be confused, I still prefer my GS. But I simply don't trust her anymore. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't have the FJR.

For my old bones, the GS is too...lumpy...for long distance all-paved stuff. I love the capability to ride gravel or fire trails, but if I'm staying on the pavement (especially slabs), I want a suuuper smooth ride.

Here she be.

My GS is buttery smooth. Now I've only done 917 in a day on a GS, but I guess I dunno how being folded up on a psuedo sprotbile denotes comfort. Oh wait, that's right, you're tiny...
