I've been lusting for one of these lately!
You know, if that F8GT had better fuel capacity/range, it could fall into the "one bike" category.
I'm more worried about reliability and maintenance issues. And I've heard the engine is a little blah. Haven't ridden one since the 800ST came out. A lot of potential, though...
Yeah, I have all of the movies on DVD (even Thunderdome ), and prefer to watch them in the original dialect. It isn't that much more difficult for us Yanks to understand, and really adds to the movies.
The engine is good to go. I like it. Has great midrange punch and decent bottom end.
Maint./Reliability is mostly fixed on the later year F800s (after 2009ish). The big issues with the bikes prior to that were the stator burning up (around 30 or 40k miles) and random failures of the rear axle bearings which IMO was being caused by a way to tight belt spec by BMW. The stator was fixed with a redesigned stator and rotor which helped with cooling which was what was causing the stator failures. The rear wheel bearings were fixed with redesigned bearings I think.
As long as they carried over the "fixes" to the GT model it should be good to go.
Yeah, the Ninja 1k is very high on my list of future bikes. It just seems to be a great do it all machine...
I totally agree... I would get that, but I prefer naked bikes and insurance is way cheaper on the Zed.
if only you could get the z1k with ABS in the states
Wow,can you say TORQUE.
This photo is repeated and repeated. This build is 4 or 5 years old. Some go even further. Someone in Europe, Italy I think, did a very radical off-road treatment for an SV650 which is the best I've seen todate. Also 4 or 5 years ago.
Royal Enfield Interceptor! I was in love with thing back in my youth and never had the bucks to get one. I may not ride it much but still love it on looks and sound alone. I'd have one on display in the house if my wife would let a bike in the house.
Even though I would't "want" one, I do admit that it is hella cool looking!
Oh that is a beautiful machine. Underrated and under apprciated too.
I'd take the Clymer Indian or Rickman variants too!
What the hell is that? Besides a super huuuuuge dirt-bike picture
