    Doubt it. But it's what half the price?

    Hey guys,

    Just found this thread. I'm new here and made a post asking what problems the F800GS has and was told me to make a search but couldn't really find anything. I see again in this thread people saying the bike has issues.

    What kind of problems does the bike have? I'm about to pull the trigger on a 2013 F800GS this week with a lot of the options. I want to know if maybe I should be looking at something else? Also are there any bigger F800GS forums on the net or is this the main one?

    What are you going to use it for?

    Fire roads and touring? Yes
    Deep sand? No
    Sigle Track? Maybe
    Ride around town? Absolutely!

    Going to use it for buzzing around town, going to a patio, riding coast to coast (mostly on pavement), and riding relaxed dirt type trails.
