    Wish they would bring that model to the states, I'm envious of the 6+ Gal fuel capacity.

    I noticed this model on the BMW USA website, so I guess it is available. The only thing I really envy is the fuel tank. I wonder if the larger fuel tank could be grafted onto my 2010 F800GS. There are many times when I could use the extra fuel due to lack of fuel stations in rural areas, fuel stations closing in the evening and the most likely idiot situation: I forget to get enough fuel at the last stop.

    Lovely, of course it's announced 3 weeks after I pick up my 800GS... guess I'll start saving for the next one.

    edit: Okay, after comparing specs the only real differences seem to be the fuel capacity, "tank" appearance, and available colors, so not much really. I was expecting different suspension etc. still it would be nice to go a little further between fill-ups.

    Rotopax!

    Ya'll need the neat tag along tanks available nowadays. These are neat additons for extra fuel. The tidy BMW tank on the new adventure is nice, but ya'll have fuel options to carry more. Mount yourself a aftermarket spare tank. Seen dozens doing this. Randy
