Hi, It's been a couple of years since I sold my F 800 GS. It was a capable bike, both relatively good on and off road and took me a few places it shouldn't have. My only minor complaints with that bike were the seat was uncomfortable, the screen gave a lot of wind noise/buffetting to my helmet and the engine lacked a bit of character. I am now looking at getting back in the game; I am looking at the F 850 GS Adventure and KTM 1090 Adventure R specifically. I am yet to test ride any bikes and will keep you updated as I do, but have sat on a Honda Africa Twin, BMW F 850 GS Adventure and KTM 1090 Adventure R - height is not a problem, I'm 6'2". The africa twin to me represents good value, but possibly isn't up to the level of the BMW or KTM based on reviews and to my eye is not as attractive/didn't really float my boat. I will still test ride it. I have also considered a Triumph Tiger 800, but prefer low end torque over the revving out that this triple seems to be good at and can't stand the whining noise it makes (I think you either love it or hate it). Another bike that I am yet to see in the flesh as the dealer didn't have one yet is the KTM 790 Adventure, but it doesn't seem that suitable for carrying a pillion, even if it is relatively irregularly. My wife is fully on board for me to get another bike and is keen to do a bit more two up riding as we used to do on the 800 GS, I am welcoming her input to keep her keen and after looking around with me, she really prefers the look of the BMW 850 despite the price difference to the KTM. Whatever bike I choose, will be ridden on a decent amount of bitumen given I now live in Brisbane, but my real love is riding on gravel roads, dirt tracks and pushing it a bit when the opportunity arises. Any feedback and opinions are welcome. Here are some pics of my old bike/rides.
