Ullevalseter's 2008 was sold to another lucky dude and I went for this baby instead. It's merely run (edit:) 200km and almost in pristine condition. Guess most of my questions will be answered in due order.



Plans are to swap the expensive CF fairing, fender and bash plate for cheaper components in glasfibre and aluminium. And then ride that thing as often as opportunity allows. Still grinning for being this lucky

160 k NOK. About the same price as my 2010 F800GS bought in Oct 09.
It appears to be a 2007 RR registered in 2008 by the looks.

No rallies. Only done some training on a local motocross track nearby and some additional rides in the neighbourhood. He had planned to do some rallies, but family responsibilities came first so the bike is not much used.

My plan is to use it on Norwegian and Swedish gravel roads and do much long-distance gravel-touring here in Scandinavia. It sure beats the 800GS in action range and robustness for that purpose.

Since I ride all-year this will be my preferred ride for multi-day regional adventure-rides without requiring luggage capacity. I'll simply live in huts and other facilities along the ride and enjoy the extra range and robustness it provides.

I'll use the 650 Dakar for winter rides, the F8GS for luggage-requiring summer commuting/touring and the RR for those extended gravel sport rides.

Will do. I expect some suspension tuning is in order when I get it. Thanks for the headsup.

I dunno much about your riding style or intended use.....but if you intend to ride this thing at any speed off road..... the suspension will need more than tuning, the bike is a pig, you need to uprate the front springs to 5.0nm, change the valving and gas pressure. The rear will swap like nothing you have ever ridden, it will throw you on the second switch, get the 2009 rebound stack and revalve more, reduce the slow speed compression, dont play so much with rebound, its just the stack, get rid of it as soon as you can. Be wary of this bike, its a nasty thing at speed and you can never relax on it, or as charlie says, three switches and your out! Fun, fun, fun.


Ooppps, sorry I just read youre post above, should be a great bike for what you intend to do with it, enjoy it, its a dream on garvel roads and long hauls.

So much for ready to race eh? I mean, if you have to put it through an extensive re-suspending regime just to make it ridable?

Anyway, if you got the money...we can only envy you. Enjoy it

Thanks for the advice, Cummo. Due to strict Norwegian laws it won't see much true offroad, but a lot of gravel roads, tractor roads and long mountain stretches with different qualities. I won't race it - just flog it occasionally on good deserted mountain gravel roads and generally have a good grin.
