It's curious.... The number of people who own a DR and an F800. I think it's because there is no "one bike does it all" solution, and that when you get down to the basics of what you want from them they each do well what the other wont do. Most people with a DR want more power and better handling, but not at the expense of off road ability. Most people with the F800 want more off road ability but not at the expense of power and handling. If you level the playing field, by doing what I did with the suspension upgrades, the 2 bikes are not so dissimilar.
