    F800gt

    Well, it started life as an ST but it has evolved into what would be close to a GT if BMW made them that way.

    List of farkles: F800 Depot mirror extenders, Z Technik VStream 19" windshield, R1150R handlebars and Spiegler extended front brake line, Eastern Beaver fuse / relay panel, hardwire mount for Garmin GPS, autotrimdesign.com graphics set, Givi V35 bags and E350 top box, moto-LED taillight, with an Akrapovic TI full exhaust system waiting for some warmer weather for installation.

    I want a bike that's handy enough for every day commuting but capable of two up trips as well. The stock ST is a great bike but the mods have turned into my perfect bike. Man, I love this thing.

    Very very nice. Now you have me think....... my wife is going to be so mad at me.
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
    I answer to Roy, Chief, or Sarg.

    How do you like the Givi V35s? My wife opted for those for her new ST intead of the tiny and ugly BMW bags. She is getting them with the silver lids. I will be installing them myself. How did yours fit up?

    Might look into the bars too later on, she was unsure how well she liked the stock ones when she sat on the bike. We'll see after she has a bit of riding time on it.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.
