Those F800's are amazing, I had one for a while and was astounded at how little fuel they use. No matter how hard I tried

They do very well. That's why I think the "argument" of the small tank is no argument at all...

That's impressive. Under what riding conditions did you get that kind of mileage? Mostly off road?

Actually that's not impressive at all . When I went off-road for that hour or so with vulvapaulo, it went a bit higher than that (4.5 - lower mileage), mostly due to my relentless use of the clutch.
If I stick to national roads (not freeways), I can get 3.9 or lower (higher mileage) for a loooong distance. That's impressive.

On the freeway, if I stick to less than 60 mph, I'll get 4.1... If I go faster, it'll do 4.5...

No way to complain about that.

I had 380 kms since my last refill. That's 236 miles.

Question consumption

Hello Karbono,

I ride a F800GS since last year too. My bike takes about 4,3 to 5,0 litres/100 km what is less then the R1200GS consumed and a huge difference to the consumption of the 1989 R100GS. This bike was running with 5,5 to 7,0 L/100 km.
But what I want to ask you and other drivers of the F800GS: what distance will a tire run? I must say that my rear tire runs only for 4000 to 5500 km (2500 - 3500 mls) and the front tire makes nearly the double performance. I remember when I made 10.000 km/6.000 mls with a Metzler Enduro 4 rear tire and 15.000 km/9.000 mls on the front tire
What tires do you prefer and what distance you go with?

Thanks for your nice RR and beautiful pictures.

Until another time.

Hello. We're going further off-topic by the day . I'm still at 6.000 kms with my F800, so I don't have a lot of experience with tire change on this bike. I can safely say that although I can see some wear, the rear tire will definitely last (at least) 10.000 kms. I have the Michelin Anakee 2.
