    Question What's up with the F-twins section?

    All these MOA members and only a dozen threads in the F-Twins section?
    Am I missing somthin' here?
    Surely there has to be more interest...

    Don't know. Personally, I only check the New Posts tab daily; never look in individual folders. Thus I only see anything from the F-Twins folder when someone makes a new post in it. Not sure why I do it that way, I just do.

    I think most hang around here http://www.advrider.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=77 and a few over here http://f800riders.org/forum/forum.php I have been a MOA member for almost 30 years and have owned a F bikes on and off since 2007, and I have never seen much action here.

    Might want to look at your user settings. I see just over 100 threads in this section.

    I'm doin' what I can...just put up the post on the wheel bearings. Kevin just bumped my post on taking 2" out of the suspension.

    Got something of interest- post it up!

    You're only looking at the threads from the past month. There are 572 threads in this section.

    Go back to the page that shows the F-Twins threads, then scroll down to "Thread Display Options" where it allows you to change from displaying the past month to whatever you want.

    A little more of an explanation-
    Show threads from the.........all the way from the beginning if you want.

    Sort threads by:

    Order threads in...
    Ascending Order


    Descending Order

    Then click-

    Show threads

    I think this can be changed in a members individual preferences for a more permanent F-Twin experience

    I gave up when my F800ST had unresolvable stalling issues and traded it in on the '08 RT I have now. Oh, yeah, the dealer which sold it to me couldn't fix it, screwed me on the trade-in and now has it for sale to the next sucker and only did an oil change.

    ...not relative...sorry for your loss

    I've owned nothing but boxers since 1981, plus a few other brands. Don't spoil it for me...

    Old bike on the right new bike on the left ...

    Sorry to hear that. Sounds like you need a new dealer, not a new bike.

    You've just been spoiled by hanging around all those Pelicans!

    BTW, those barbacks are the best thing I ever added to my 11S...

    I'm interested

    I look in here several times a day.

    Last Oct. I traded a 2010 Vision 8 Ball for a new 2013 F700GS.

    It is an understatement to say I am immensely enjoying the F700GS.

    After the good luck I have had with my R bike, my service manager won't let me buy a F-bike. I won't either!

    Cool Comparo

    We rode 200 miles today across SoCal freeways, canyons and mountains.
    The F8GT is pretty damn superb, at least for me and my 177lb wimpy bod.
    Has all the power I need to do it all.
    Best part is the suspension, that for once on a BMW, I won't have to upgrade.

    My buddy who sold me the GT just bought a 2014 Triumph 800XC. We swapped for about 50 miles.
    The TR triple felt smoother, even silky too smooth motor-wise and felt like it had alot more thrust.
    But I'd have to spend an easy $2K on that suspension. Beat me to death on the bumpy tarmac.
    Back on the GT I was in hebben...
