    Well later today my new f800gt is delivered every factory fit extra and finished in gravity blue Matt.
    12 years since my BMW journey started with my red f800s, I could not believe a bike could be that good and I have owned a few.
    I will wave goodbye to a r9t racer with much sadness but I'm no spring chicken anymore (physically) and it was a little extreme on my long legs.
    I know there is a super new 900 model in the showroom but no chain maintenance for me.
    I joined this forum in 2008 and still see some names from back then.
    Happy days are on the way.

    Love it! Agreed on just not getting excited about any bike with a chain any more... this low maintenance belt can spoil you in a hurry!

    Great bikes. Enjoy it and take care of it. I have a 2012 F800ST with 35K miles on it. Fun all day long! It's a shame they discontinued this model. 2020 they're offering an F900XR, which I think is supposed to fill that space. I don't believe it will measure up to the F800's. I don't particularly like the look, but may take one for a ride anyway.

    Honestly have tried all I get is insufficient memory, not really my strongest skill. I will keep trying, bike is standard and we seem happy with eatchother.
    My part ex was a r9t racer, my analogy I feel like I have just spent a year with the naughtiest girl in town I have given up with her and I'm now dating town Liberian very sensible prim and proper kind of girl your mom would like!

    Nice and congratulations on the new bike. I am on my second F800GT. Sold my 2014 model in 2018 for a R1150RT and missed the GT. So, I bought a mint 2018 model in Oct last. Love it

    The GT is ideal for Scotland ---- roll on Spring. May weather can be great and midges haven't woken up! My old 2013 GT[now replaced by a 2019] pictured last May near Stac Pollaidh mountain in NW Scotland.Click image for larger version.

    Downloaded that great picture Chris. Head up every year first trip was 2008 on my red f800s.
    Always take a perverse pleasure watching friends use more petrol. And of course that gem watching the CHAIN gang doing there maintenance routine.
