    Made for adventure and offroading, in my opinion a decent bike for a decent price. The suspension is too slack for onroadriding, plus it could use some more power for onroad. But this is the Dakar version, you need to take this baby into the dirt. Exhaust is too heavy for the back, so get yourself a slip-on on it and brwaaaaap away !

    My trusty daily commuter and weekend warrior. Wimpy oem exhaust, dump it and get a true thumper can. Virtually bullet proof if you keep up with the maintenance. New handlebars area a must if you plan on hitting the dirt. Tried and tested model. So many farkles to choose from.

    Excellent bike for urban riding, camping, and the occasional muddy trail. My only gripe, wish it had the same power as the 800GS. that 10hp difference would be nice to have.

    Love my F800gs.
    Been a great bike so far on and off road.
    Lots of mods to make her better.

    Currently I have two ponies I keep in my stable " garage" 2008: F650GS Dakar & 2013 F800 GS. I traveled most of the South East Coast all last year totaling a good 28,000mls mostly solo on the F650.I wanted a larger engine and have recently (Mid December) purchased the F800gs For a RTW/West coast exploration. I'm still getting comfortable with the 800's weight (especially packed with camping gear). I have had the honor of training and riding with some of XLADV riders. I believe we are headed to Lake Berryessa this weekend. I feel this is a great start to another awesome big bike community!

    I have had my 2013 BMW F800GS since September of 2012, and have since put 25k miles on it (and counting). It has proved to be a true all-rounder that excels at every task you put it to. Whether it is commuting, canyon carving, eating up freeway miles, packed to the brim for camping, single track, or fire roads, it seems to always be in its element. The only real complaint I have is the stock suspension, and it could use a little more POWER. For most people it is probably adequate. The specs can be deceiving, because it is an extremely versatile little Rotax with power and torque in every nook and cranny of the rev range. However, when you load it up with gear and try to do freeway speeds up steep inclines you can definitely feel the limitation. Other than that, my bike has been absolutely trouble free!

    The F800gs is my favorite BMW. That's why between the wife and I we own 3.

    This is the largest bike I have ever owned. Love it. Very capable of long rides then jumping off road.

    I had a '13 GSA 1200. It was too big for me.
    "Pick a standard 1200, no?"
    No, because I love the rugged bulkyness of the Adventure models.

    So...here's the new toy! A 2013 F800GSA, "sand beige" color, with only 16k KMs, and full optional: Full aluminium panniers set with BMW internal bags for the side panniers, heated grips, ESA, ABS/ASC, on-board computer, 2 riding modes (Road/Enduro), LED foglights, LED blinkers, and maybe even something else.
    Plus, the previous owner installed a couple toys that I would've installed anyway: crash bars for the "tank" (by GIVI), a bigger skidplate (GIVI again), and the expanded sidestand base (no idea who made it).

    After a full day of riding, I can say I'm VERY satisfied. Fuel consumption is ridicolously low, the bike's very comfortable (solo and with pillion), and most importantly, it's FIFTY KILOGRAMS lighter than both my previous GSA1200 and my ex-SuperTenere.

    I've only found 3 things I don't like on this bike:
    1- Sound. Easily fixable with a proper exhaust.
    2- Handguards. They leave half my hand exposed to air/cold.
    3- Windscreen. It's big, but it leaves my head exposed.

    Again, I can easily fix all these "problems".

    Can't wait to ride more! :)

    Great bike. Suspension needs some work. I also plan to add larger tanks for travel.

    I have to add a full review to add the bike to my garage? Yeah, I'll come back to this. Theme will be: never buy the first year of any model.

    Biggest bike I have owned. After a year, I still find the big girl intimidating... but I'm learning and appreciating it more and more.

    Bought used in 2010 and haven't regretted it for a minute. Took it on White Rim Trail (not sure what I was thinking) as my first off road experience since being a kid. This is my go-to, long mileage bike. Aftermarket Corbin allows me to easily do 700-900 mile days.
