I was lucky enough to get a demo ride on an 800 GS at the rally. The bike handled like a dream, quick acceleration, good ergos and I noticed a bit of buzzing around the 5K rpm which seemed to vibrate through the entire bike (hand grips, seat, tank, and really heavy on the foot pegs).

We could only reach a speed of roughly 65 mph and there wasn't much of a buzz in the foot pegs but out west in most states we can zip along at 75 with ease, I figured the rpm would be about 5K so I down shifted and took it up to that RPM.

My question is - Does anyone else feel that type of vibration at that RPM and speed (~75)? It seems like a perfect bike up to 65 mph and lower rpm's. Does this happen on the GT? ST?

Thanks for your help,
