Thought I'd give the CB5X a rest and take the F8GS out for a dirty spin  :152:

If we manage to survive the looneys rushing the supermarkets and emptying the shelves. When to the supermarket yesterday to buy my tea and it looked like the end of the world had happened  :008:


Nice pics Steve. What's the F8GS like? I was thinking of getting one of those before I bought the X

I love them - this is my 4th. I keep selling them, then realise that I shouldn't have sold, so go looking for another. This one was bought to replace a 2012 Trophy version that I got from my son (I got him a 1200GS and got the F8GS in exchange). I stupidly offered the '12 Trophy to a neighbours son for a silly price, which he paid  :012:

Before the F8Gs came into my riding life I was into my 4th XRV750 Africa Twin(the REAL Africa Twin). I thought of the F8GS as the natural succesor to the AT - lighter, more power (but not too much), more ground clearance and better on fuel. I tried a F650GS Twin in between my 2nd and 3rd F8GS's and whilst it was good at everything, including touring, it just wasn't a F8GS  :033:

The F8GS does everything I what to do on a bike. I've been on some really silly trails on them, I've hooned around some fantastic roads on them and I've toured on them, and I'm always smiling when I get off, look round and see my steaming ride standing there shouting "Again!"
My advice - don't try one now that you've got your CB5X! Get my meaning?

Out twice today.
1st with eldest and his behemoth of a bike (I was on my F8GS). This is us practicing safe seperation . . . or whatever they call it just now . . . and contemplation
  :152:


Then took the dirty route on the way to the fuel station this afternoon to fill up the CB . . .

Beautiful blue sky!  It is going to hit 70 here today, but rainy, at least for the morning.  I'm still hoping to get out for a couple of hours.

After one week without leaving home, I would love to ride a little bit!

This is a video with a few shots from a 4 days trip in central Italy me and my mate Flavio did last summer.
Can't wait for a new one.

Enjoy.
