Hey! Thanks for reading. I don't think any of us would ride motorcycles if we didn't think the adventure was in the journey as much as the destination. I'll be sure to fwd your appreciation of the size of my fiance's balls along to her.

I kinda think about it the same way you do. "Getting a new bike one breakdown at a time." While of course, we'd all expect fewer gremlins from a bike with the BMW pedigree, I tend to think the F800GS will one day be thought of as a venerable classic. I still love it and am not sure we could have done EVERYTHING we did on this trip bettter with bikes other than the 990 and the F800.

BTW, we just got back from 10 days on a rented F800GS looping from Nice, France to the Pyrennees and back via the Route des Grande Alpes. Great trip and feel very lucky to have had the opportunity. Check the out RR if you're interested. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=601142

Oh and BTW, there's some more recent discussion on clutch problems on the "HELP!" thread I started while stranded near Moab.
