    Hi
    Finally purchased an F800GT after looking around for a while. It’s a white 2013 so a few years old with 28000km. Condition I would describe as well looked after but has definitely seen some touring miles. Has panniers, tank bag, all electronics and navigator V. Bought it 3 hours away and rode home and all seems good. I felt cramped in the legs on the way home so have fitted low pegs and this is a big improvement. Other thing is the standard screen which I think I will replace after some investigation as to what will suit me. Anyway enjoying the bike and have already gleaned a lot of useful information from the forum.

    Hi and welcome to f800 ownership, we hear in the U.K. are kept well informed about the awful events our Australian friends are facing with the biblical fires raging in many parts of Australia. hope things return to some normality soon.
    Many happy safe miles on your new bike.

    Hola and congrats on the GT. On my ST I raised the bars, lowered the pegs and put a 25" Cal Sci with a Laminar lip on top. That made touring more comfortable.
    In my misspent youth I was on a Forest Hot Shot crew and threw dirt on a fair number of fires. None of which reached the level of damage your current fire weather is providing. We can all pray for rain. Rain has helped in a number of Califs fire seasons.
    Hope you are in a safe zone. Although looking at a current Aus fire map seems your fires are all over the place.

    G'day Brad, welcome from the not so sunny south coast. I'm the other F800 owner near you. There may be others but they haven't said much lately.

    I've been trying to meet up with Dom but somehow this hasn't happened and now with the bushfires we may have to put it on hold for a while. We'll give you a shout of you're keen for a meet up.
