    FWIW, I bought my '13 GSW as a demo, and it's been great. I negotiated an extended warranty as part of the deal to bring it to 7 years from time of purchase, not in-service date. Thus far, I've put a...

    I was heading eastbound on I-40 just east of Asheville. I saw what looked like a piece of clear plastic that one would use to cover a porch fly out of an open trailer. The fist of God must have been...

    Forgive the vernacular. I fly Cessnas, and the 'shock absorber' mounted to the front wheel (which strangely is identical to those thingys on the front forks of many road bikes) are called shimmy...

    I've read with great interest this issue before picking up my new 2013 GS yesterday. It's a demo with 2600 mi on the clock and comes with the Tourance Next tires. I purposefully took it out to...

    The 800 engine sips gas WRT the 1200. There's a bit more of a buzz on the Rotax at highway speeds though. I haven't ridden the 700 but the 658 was a kick to ride and if I did more off-pavement time,...

    Heya Royce,

    Welcome to the fold!

    1. I check my oil on the centerstand after the engine is warm. The book states to wait after the cooling fan kicks in but even in mid 90s temps that isn't...

    If it's that bad in ILM, imagine how things are inland! Even my pretty short-distance commutes in Raleigh have been miserable, with traffic lights being more of an enemy than usual. And no, it ain't...

    I suppose there are all kinds of tricks to making a bike more comfortable. I was fortunate enough to get an ST with 1cm bar risers. It's impressive how much that little change helps.

    Hi PattiB

    There's exhaustive discussion of this on the F800Riders.org forum - you may want to check it out but what I can muster is everyone seems to have a different experience.
