you meant an after-market oversize fuel tank?

i'd emailed touratech many weeks ago and reply was that there is no intention of Touratech Germany having any plans to design and sell aftermarket oversize tank for the F800GS.

Ah ha I thought as much

Arrival! This is what I saw when I opened the dealer front door. What a sweet sight!

Knock, Knock, let me in. Ready to sleep in a new home...

New background on my phone:

First ride w/my friend FastEddy. Taken just off the S2 in east San Diego County. Hey at least I parked it in the dirt to take the shot! ;)


I'm loving this bike!

Well it wasnt as muddy as I thought it would be, but we rode about 200 miles of dirt tracks, marble deep gravel, some atv trails and a railroad bridge.
