    I put a deposit on one today so I can now work my way through this Thread again.

    Still have to work out a way of getting it down from NSW and obviously made much more difficult with these travel restrictions but will work something out eventually. Always wanted an 800 - looking forward to getting it and also being allowed to try it out when it gets here.

    I've been toying with the idea of a GS . Mostly been looking at the 1200 . Want it more as an all roads tourer rather than any serious off road . There is certainly a lot more low km 800s available at reasonable prices than 1200s .
    Makes me wonder if it's not a good tourer ?

    Test ride required ......
    OR
    Better yet, rent one of each and try it out for a whole day
    I think the 800 is a Capable tourer ...
    But the 1200 is an Excellent tourer

    I like the look of that Akropovic. :-)

    How different does it sound to the original?
