So a friend of mine is in the market for a new ride. We just came back from the dealer where he test rode the F800R. I was no help as I suggested the GS or the K\RT and K\GT bikes. He is just getting off an FZ6 99% of his riding will be commuting, but he does some day rides, a weekend here and there and might take a few long rides with me. The two bikes he has been looking at lately are the NC700X (Or S, whichever uses the regular trans) and now the F800R. Anything else in that type of style that you guys think he should look at? Oh, used bikes are not on the table, he prefers new. He has a bad taste in his mouth from a rat of a used bike he had ages ago and never wants to go through that again. Whereas I on the other hand would never consider a new ride, simply for the cost. So, let's hear your opinions.
