    Hi everyone

    My names Kathy from the South East of the UK in West Sussex. I bought my 2013 bike at the back end of August and within a week of having it was off to Wales for a few days. Must say that this is my second bike since getting my full licence in Sept 2020 and Iím growing very attached to it.

    Hoping to get over to Europe as soon as Covid settles down enough and canít wait. Got some panniers for it this week so ready to go 😁

    Welcome Kathy and yes you will keep getting more attached to it. I would know because I bought the exact same 2013 F800GT in September (with panniers).

    Ah nice. My partner got some sports panniers from eBay which turned out the left case is for an ST, even thought it said GT on the advert. Doh! So keeping my eye open for a GT one.
