    Welcome and congrats on the "new to You" ride!
    It is tough this time of year waiting for day roads to take advantage of the awesome low end torque the F800 has to offer.

    Hello David. Another welcome from south of the border. I live in sunny (only today) Rugby. I have a 2014 F800R. Happy with the white colour but since Christmas I have put some spot lights on it to improve "being seen". Just given the bike a coating of ACF50 in the hope that I might get a few short rides in if the weather allows. Then back to some more serious stuff in the Spring. Welcome and enjoy your bike. Rob.
