    I prefer option D - tell the wife the market has dried up and you'd lose too much on selling the red one so keep both, ride both and be the happiest BMW owner in your household. :-)

    Ryan F9 is a funny bastard - his YouTubes are always entertaining.

    He’s only been wrong once - not liking the 1250 GS/A. :-)

    Are you going to sell the muffler? If so, what sort of dollars would you be looking for? I already have one on my bike with the full system, but my wife also has a 2011 F800 so I would be interested in it for her bike....

    No problems at all. If you do decide to sell the muffler let me know.

    Be interesting to hear your opinion of the GSA after you've spent some time on it, compared to the stocker F800gs. :lurk

    Ryan has a lot to answer for..that was one of the reason I have just gotten myself a new to me low Km 2013 GSA..I dont even mind the Teutonic :jack sound of the stock exhaust..much better than the Barret that was on it.

    Not yet. There have been some delays with the freight of it. I work in the international freight industry so I have been experiencing these problems first-hand for the past few months. I am not too concerned, I still can't get out and ride yet. Hopefully I will see it in the next couple of weeks.

    shit I've spent a bucket on cleaning agents over the years, not one “ragret”, I've always said if the shit hit the fan and I could only have 1 bike, this would be it
