    Hello again never forgot my time with my red f 800s back in 2008, simply my favorite best ever bike.
    Dunny / pat / Jason c amongst many others made this a great place.
    Currently riding the possably the best looking bike in the world (imho)
    BMW R9t racer a bike that you can just look at as Well as ride.
    But the lure of 70mpg and belt drive and more comfort could bring me back to f800gt ownership.
    Thanks for having me AGAIN
    Regards Stuart staffs U.K..

    Hi Stuart and welcome , I'm currently hoping to get to dealer this week for the R version. In my intro talk about a colleague who has had two GT's over 12 years and he loves them think he has helped sway me oh good luck too.

    Howdy! I'm a different Jason C but welcome back. Have you taken a GT out for a spin? Cheers.

    Not rode the GT for any distance I did have one for 150 miles but did not keep it! Big mistake please don't ask!
    Have put 8K on versys 650 and 3K on Yamaha xsr700 both excellent bikes but incapable of getting the f800 fuel consumption figures.
    And of course these bikes are chain driven.
    Should I worry about rumers that production may be coming to a end?.
    I like the under seat fuel tank I even loved the 3 button indicator system on my previous f800s.
    Thanks for warm welcome.

    I personally don't think there is anything to worry about. The ST forum is very active and the GT is newer and will remain active for years to come for help and advice, and I'd think there will be plenty of parts around too. Changes to the platform are more about marketing to newer or larger crowds I think.

    I look at it this way...all motorcycles change. An example that comes to mind is the Yamaha FJR. It's been in production since 2001 and has gone through many "generations". The 2019 model is considerably different than the 2001 model. You could say they are two different motorcycles that look similar...but they have the same name. So you could say the Yamaha FJR is still in production...but many of the parts on a 2001 aren't the same.

    Hi Stuart, I'm still hanging around even though I've sold my second ST and hung up my gear (for now). I'm sure the forum can put up with you (they still put up with me )
    As of Mon, 1st Feb 2016- ;
    Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery,
    Today is a gift (that's why it's called "the present")
    #1 tip I ride by: Ride as though you're invisible, not invincible
    Bikes so far: Honda CB250-Traded, Suzuki GS500F-Traded, '07 F800ST Matt Graphitan-Deceased, '10 F800ST Night Blue-sold, at present bikeless

    Well its official found the best GT in country (imho)and bagged it!
    So I was here at start of the party and no and now I'm back for a encore. As we all know the GT is no longer available being replaced with some Chinese motor with a chain drive... progress?
    Simply could not resist fully loaded bike / remainder of 3 year warranty and the 65 plus to the gallon.
    So no TFT or cruise control for me... so let's get this party started.
