    Greatings Men and any Girls. I am David from Bangor , Northern Ireland. Obviously Joey Dunlop was my hero rider and way back Jachimo Agostini . Just got a 2017 F800Gt, 8000 miles coming off brandnew CBR500R, which did not suit me. I love the F800, i have posted my concern re the bike chugging in slow traffic, and got mixed views on fitting a booster plug. I have ordered one and will give you my findings in due course.
    Any useful tips for this bike would be appreciated.
    Has anyone found different premiums or even brands of fuel effect this bike.
    Glad to be a beemer boy, bike really growing on me. Rev up !

    Welcome to the group and enjoy the new wheels. Oh, who doesn't love Joey. I spent some time at Intel in Ireland and a buddy, Ivan McCaffrey took me around to some of the pubs and we raised a pint for Joey at each one. Maybe it was 4, can't remember much!
