This will probably be moved but I wanted to post it on the LT forum first. Last week I rented a BMW F800GT. My lady friend and I rode it 1200 miles from San Fran to Crater Lake and back. The bike really impressed us both. Plenty of storage for all our stuff, comfortable for us both, the lady really liked the view from the rear seat, handled great, plenty of power, and averaged 62-65 mpg most at 70-80 mph. My lady was very comfortable and she has ridden plenty of 500 miles days on my LT. I think BMW has hit it right with this bike. I am 65 yrs and will be looking for something lighter soon.
