Re: BMW F800GT Questions

I test-rode the GT and wasn't impressed with the power. At the time I had an FZ6R and thought that they were on the same level being the fz bulletproof in all aspects. I do like the lightness of the ST, but triumph Striple as well.
However, I do need to accommodate a passenger too.
Now I have a Bandit 1250 and wouldn't trade it for any bike. (well, maybe for Duc Diavel ).
