Vehicle Details



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! :)

Just got back from Altrider Taste of Dakar.  My bike seemed to be the perfect balance (in the BMW category) between a road bike and adventure bike.  Fuel capacity is great.  I was able to do the whole days ride with 2 gallons to spare.  Next time I will bring a siphon hose for my buddies.  The bike still has more skills than I do, but I am catching up to it quickly.  

Its not a motocross bike, so slow down for the bumps and it will get you anywhere.  


The stock rear TKC80 was done at 2500 miles.  I replaced it with a Savin/Mitas MC60 GETaWAY and it hooked up great.  So far it has the same grip on and off road.
