    hello everyone,

    i thought that i would let all that were not at the Seattle bike show know about a new plate on the market. I talked to a guy there that has a new plate for the 800 GS. here is his website.

    www.motooverland.com

    how is everyone liking their f8GS? i was thinking about one of those.

    Hello tobis, and welcome. No info in your profile, but you're in or near Burnaby, right? So I was curious to know if you're connected with MOD. Thanks in advance...

    Did they give any indication of the price range?

    Hey Folks,

    Just chatted with MOD via e-mail and they are undecided on price until their final prototypes are finished. Ready by spring and competitively priced is the word I got from one of the company's owners...Till then...???

    i spoke with Dave from MOD today. He also said that they will be working on other stuff down the road. There are a few things on the plate right now for them.
    I just have to get me a new bike. My KLR is getting tired. any feedback on the 800 GS or Tenere?
