    F800 vibration?

    Wear gel gloves and it's gone! It being the buzz. That should tell you something. The countermass system is way up to snuff.

    Beautiful, Dave. Nice setup. Have you been over to f800riders.org or f800depot.com yet? The first is a F800 forum that is great for us USA-ers, because it includes EC, SA, and AU residents that had the bike a year or so before us, and the latter is a new F800 farkels store that just opened up with all kinds of F800 goodies, some you have, a few you don't. Your bike is well-equipped and looking loooooong road ready.

    What part of the US are you and it in? I am in the desert SW (AZ to be exact).

    Going out of town in a half hour for a whole week, away from the email, so if you return post and I don't reply soon, kindly understand. Meanwhile, enjoy the riding, mine is tied up to its Battery Tender while we run 110-115 as daytime highs.

    In a few weeks, I will steal away early morn and ride with a local BMW club to the Alps-like part of AZ in Alpine and Greer. It's cool there, and and we will do a 191 (n?®e 666) run to wear ourselves out for nice BBQ in the Alps, and a day ride back after a night's stay in Alpine. Then back on the ole BT while we have Monsoon for a week.

    Later, it is summertime.

    Nice, Dave! Welcome to F Troop. Curious what GPS you are running and how it was mounted/wired. Pics would be great.

    Mine is a graphitan, btw (that's dark grey to you and me).

    Keep us posted.

    Thanks Tweety, I'm a member over at the F800 board under another name, it really has been useful, especially in figuring out the electrical accessories. Although President Madison tried to make us part of the US in 1812, I'm not in the US, but in southern Ontario near Detroit.

    Wezul, if you want to PM me I can forward some pics of the GPS and electrical setup for you.

    I got my 800S April 17th and just turned over 8400 miles today. Last week I did over 1900 miles in 3 days going out to Colorado from Illinois.

    I've started shopping for seats - then a couple of days ago I read an 800 review in
    ON and have begun to think the smart move may be to an 800ST.
    I found a discussion group in which there were some cautionary comments about
    handle bar vibration on the ST. Anyone had problems with that?

    I sometimes am on my toes with my '07 R12RT. I flatfoot my F800ST.

    Very happy with my new F800ST

    I recently (about three weeks ago) bought a new F800ST. It is all I expected. I think BMW has made a good choice in producing this model. I've only put about 400+ miles on it so far, but have a trip planned in July that will turnup the miles.

    Try again to post image

    First try on posting image didn't work, image to large here is a second try. Also, with this bike I have 47 years of BMW's in my garage: 1960 R26, 1983 R80RT and now a 2007 F800ST. One of my friends said I have now entered the 21st Century with my bikes.

    Very nice coyotebmw! Is that a Marsee tank bag I spy on yours? Been thinking about one with an A-type setup to power some items like GPS, etc. Thanks for the reply in advance and welcome to the 21st century.

    Enjoy it and the joy it brings. I have 1600 miles on mine, right now waiting in the garage on its Battery Tender while out of town, and taking a nice long trip in two weeks with five other beemers.

    Riding The Blue Ridge Parkway

    3400 Miles on my F800ST.
    Still love it.
    Why?
    Just as responsive as my old 650...only 50 pounds heavier...30 more HP...one more gear...quick...always seems to have more to give.

    vibration

    has anyone tried bar-end weights to help with the vibration? they help on my ST1300. I'm thinking about the F800ST next year when I've put some more miles on this bike and give BMW some time to sort out the new models.

    The bike comes with bar weights. My F800S has no noticeable vibration at all, so it might be a bike by bike thing. YMMV

    Meanwhile, I put 600+ miles on this weekend, going up to Greer, AZ from Phoenix, through NM, and taking the 60 (right through Salt River Canyon-what a view) back, ranging 40 degrees back to 104, and saw plenty of deer during the trip, including two on the road we managed to see in time, and had to honk at them to move.

    I was wearing Field Sheer mesh gloves, and mesh jacket, pants, with that new dry fit shirt, briefs, and socks. It works well, but you also need a rain suit to cover the mesh for those 40 degree rides.

    Nice pic, Peg, and the F800 is a blast, whether S or ST and regardless of yellow, red, gray, blue, whatever!

    Congrats and enjoy!
