A bit over 10,000 miles

So, The BMW F 800 S and I have been together 8 months and 10k miles. In that time we’ve:
Crashed. =(
Gone to SLO and back.
Track Day!
Done a bit of 2 up riding.
Really been lacking the long trips with it. I missed the LA trip due to crashing, and well just haven’t had time to do anything else.

So far it’s been pretty low maintenance. The Belt is good, the Tires are still good since replacing them after the crash 8.5k ago, and just one service interval. Though I’m coming up on a minor one soon.

Still a bit vibey at some RPM, and occasionally this gets annoying. But the 200 mile 3 hour ride to SLO was fine and it gets great gas mileage on that kind of trip (62.5 mpg) and good mileage on the everyday commute too. (54.5 mpg)
All mileage is thanks to Fuelly

So, no regrets. Only Regret not having gone to Portland or Salt Lake City on it.

I started riding motorcycles in 2006, and there is no going back. I've ridden more than 100,000 miles, most of it on a Ducati Monster, and despite setbacks and murderous BMW's I'm loving every mile.
