    If you guys don't mind me asking on this thread; will a typical full face helmet fit in the factory F series saddlebag?
    There's a reason i am asking this, but I'm not talking. I'm no stool pigeon.

    helmet fits

    It's an expandable bag, and yes one will fit in it.

    Exclamation 1600 miles and still a blast!

    Well I now have over 1600 miles on my bike and have made one long trip (500 Miles). It is still a blast to ride and full of surprises at its responsiveness and power. I did a comparison of power to weight between the R1200ST, the K1200S and the F800ST. The F800 is within a couple of tenths of the power to weight of the larger R-bike! This bike has got lots of looks and complements everywhere I go. BMW has surley created a winner with this bike! http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/images/smilies/clap.gif

    Can you see mine?

    A photo of most of the bikes from a mid-fall meet today of my local BMW MOA chapter (there were 25 in all). Can you see mine in a sea of other BMWs? Look for the Tweety Bird color!

    I bought an F800ST in August and put 2,300 miles on it. Loved the bike and had none of the problems that have been described in numerous forums and was getting about 50 mpg. Its a great bike. Sadly, I needed to get rid of it and get something that puts me in more upright riding position because of neck issues. I added barbacks, panniers, top case, mirror extenders and a CalSci windscreen. I loved that bike:

    Some of my F800S Farkles

    I thought I'd start this, considering this thread hadn't seen activity in a bit. Here are some my farkles.

    The BMW Zumo


    The Axio Tail Bag (from its front)


    Same, from rear


    Marsee 11L tank bag, with electric kit


    White tail lens/red LED light


    More later...

    Yours?

    Haven't taken a pic of mine from the side, as the garage needs a clean out and is a little too crowded around the bike. But the mount is a ZTechnik setup, available from any BMW dealer or from techmounts.com, and it comes in two pieces, a Z6131 mount and a Z6201 GPS top plate. Search ZTechnik, go to website, under products select bike, and it'll show you the two in a list of all their products for yours.

    I have to say, 1) the quality is EXCELLENT and 2) with adjustments fore and aft, up and down, and tilt angle sideways, the utility of the mount is beyond excellent, to sublime. I could not recommend a better add-on if you want a GPS, and I am considering a second for the throttle side, for mounting my V1 radar detector, as I have done the brake reservoir mod seen on f800riders.org, and removed the bracket from that side.

    Here is a photo of the Z6131 mount:

    I just added Givi bags and a centerstand to my 800S. Nothing happens, I should turn 20,000 miles on her this afternoon.

    On the F800riders.org forum, there is a thread in the How To section on doing what is called the Front Brake Mod. Here's mine nice and close up all done. I did it about 1,000 miles ago and it's all good. No more high bracket!

    It uses BMW parts mostly from the new K series.



    Instructions are here: http://f800riders.org/forum/showthread.php?t=9386 but missing original pics. I do have a PDF of this with pics, and if you want it, PM me.

    Tootles.

    I love this bike. It is my first BMW and it's comfortable, gets great gas mileage, has great accessories, and I think it looks great!
