    Will you please post some reports of an F800 on a trip down Baja peninsula?

    No the only thing I remember that comes close is one rider who posted a picture of a yellow F800 with a lot of duffle bags strapped to it & they said that was their set up on a trip to Baja. I think it might have been in one of the pannier threads, don't know if they aslo did a ride report though...

    Videos not reports and pretty lame compared to the real adventures some folks have but it's all I got.

    Great job keeping this updated, Bartron. :thumb

    I'm going to sticky this thread. Busted bearings and recall notices only tell part of the story on these (or any) bikes. :ricky

    Thanks PM. Couldn't agree more. These bikes are being taken on some fantastic trips.

    Added it to the growing list of intrepid voyageurs. Hopefully the rest of your ride report includes a reprieve from the rain!

    I have no idea how I could have missed your epic thread ChiTown - now added to the list.

    Thanks to themanfromars for his Baja report!

    Here's mine. It's tame compared to most but it was still a blast and there are some decent 800GS pics (If I do say so myself:D ).

    I wish I knew how to post a ride report link with the title instead of the web address but my computer-fu is weak.

    Brilliant! I've added your report and those recently submitted.

    Soon to come - alphabetization.

    Here is mine from the pics thread.

    I hope to add some more reports as soon as I get back from work in SE Saskatchewan. I thought of dragging the bike out there from Calgary but I haven't seen much but straight-as-an-arrow township/range roads ... any suggestions are most welcome...
