KTsRidin Posted April 15, 2007 Share Posted April 15, 2007 First - sorry I haven't been on much, but I've got dial-up at home and a new/higher demanding job (stories for another time). But my silence doesn't mean I haven't been riding. After I rolled over 100,000 miles back in November, I got to thinking about the new bikes coming out... actually, Jennifer suggested I should start looking I made a HUGE mistake yesterday. Twice a year Jennifer and I help out the local dealership with the demo rides by signing up riders and talking about the newer models. So, this year it's the G650s and F800s. While I usually don't get to ride, the crummy weather meant less folks an a few opportunities for me. I rode the G650xCountry... good if I was a dirty person ... then I made the mistake... I rode the F800ST. Holy cr@p Batman It was nimble, had as much HP as my R1100RT and is a lot lighter. Then I found out it gets over 60 mpg and service costs are half of the RT, geez, now I'm all torn up. I love my RT. I it ride every day back and forth to work. But the ST would mean spending a lot less commuting. The dilemma, I never envisioned myself as a person with two bikes. HELP!!! Your collective esteemed advise would be most appreciated Kirsten Link to comment
