I actually regret not considering the 700 more. The 800 is nice, but it is bulky and heavy.
Dealer in Aust said its due August here. That's because long way from fucking anywhere.
He did say they are def using the 800 engine.
I don't think we need bigger.
I would expect to see it in the fall when the normal production is running out of stock. then they can charge more for it.
late summer 2010, 30th anniversary addition
late summer 2011, Trophy
Late summer 2012, (I forget the name)
Yep that fits!
Oh! hope the kinks will work out by the time I'm ready to trade in
Yeserdas my dealer showed me some pic´s of the new f8adv.
Its looks damn heavy
The Tank is 4-5 cm wider than the old one and the front looks like the 1200 adv.
New windscreen. like the 1200 aswell.
I stay with my old f8 :)
Where are the pics?
Any sign of upgraded suspension (forks :) )?
So are you saying LED headlight?
That is interesting - you usually see pictures of prototypes in the magazines before the dealer has any information.
But I talked to a dealer today as well and also mentioned a bigger tank and I guess all the usual farkles are already included. How they get a bigger tank under seat - we will see ...
Fuck! There is no way I am going to trade my 2013.
Maybe any modifications made to the Adventure can be converted over to the standard model?
Same here. Still, the range of my F800GS has never been something to complain about. I occasionally carry a quart MSR bottle of fuel and only where I think I might run out of options on the road, but I've never had to use it in four years. (Yes, I do refill it with fresh gas.)
Ya, the range was never an issue for me anywhere I've been on the thing.
It's a little different out in the western US. I can point to a couple of major highways within a days ride of me where the distance between gas stations exceeds my tank's range. And if I get off of the major roads, there are a few more. Nothing that can't be overcome with a couple of MSR bottles and/or a little pre-trip planning, but give me a tank with another 50 (or 100) miles, and I'd be a happy camper.
supposedly this was shown in a german bike magazin. from what i read they were also talking about front and (wider) rear tanks. total capacity of 23-26 liters with a central filler like the 690 as seen on the picture. seems to be some strange mock up though, note it reads wunderlich on the fork legs.

Yes just a mock up by Wunderlich, we have to wait and see....
Go to a small engine / lawn mower shop and get a quart of the non alcohol fuel they sell pre-canned. It has a good life expectancy and you never have to deal with trying to fill that little bottle. sure it cost more, but if its the right size to fit your carrying area why not. Plus until you open it they don't leak.
I been meaning to start using them for the chain saw (they sell premix also) but I just never get around to it.
I live near you, and I never had a problem with finding fuel when I need it. Besides, I came off a Buell Uly and they would not go as far as the F800 on a tank.
I have not heard or seen anything on this new bike, but how much weight is gonna be added? Im trying to cut back on weight and they are gonna pack more on. probably be close to the 505 of the klr 1190r weight . please post a link if there is one. My dealer soesnt know anything about it.
How much do you weigh ?
all I care about is the weight of a bike for pushing around the yard
You do know that this bike only exists in the rumor stage, right rockycraig? So anything anyone here tells you about it would just be wild speculation. So pick a number. Here, I'll give you one for free: 49. That number is going to be about as accurate as any other number anyone posts here. Until BMW makes an announcement (or doesn't), the bike doesn't exist except in the fevered imaginations of some inmates here.
