That's exactly right Cortez. I took several shots I'll look at them and at my camera too when I get home. I don't take enough time sometimes to qc my shots or check my camera settings when I pull over for a quick snapshot. I need to develop a habit to always set it back to some neutral state before I put it away. I also have too many different cameras - should probably just stick to (this) one.

Yeah, some (most?) have the option to reset to a certain state when you
turn them off. I just have one (dSLR) and I usually use Aperture priority or
full manual and adjust everything every time, takes just seconds when you
learn to know the ballpark for everything, i.e. measure the light with the eye.

Ok, I'm done with offtopic, we need more 800GT content, pics included!

Yeah, let's talk about those vibrations that seem to make most of the
owners sell the bike in the first 2 years of ownership.

Is that so? You have a fucking Kymco, how would you know?


I'm buying a new bike, and this one looks good for what I want.

Someone who has a Kymco couldn't have had a ride on a 2007 yellow
F800S? Besides, I don't have the Kymco anymore. I think my signature
line is rather simple for most people to understand.

I know of 2 people locally who had the bike and went different routes
because of vibrations (and somewhat cost of ownership).

The mentioned yellow F800S was replaced by a Bandit 1250,
and a gray F800ST by a FJR. Just some friends of mine.

This is the 800GT thread, not the S and I'm interested to hear from people that owns the bike and how it's been doing in the long run; if you don't mind.
