Well I have been riding my new F800R for a week now, both commuting through London and a weekend ride. All I can say is I love this bike. Being new it is turning head as obviously not many about. The bike is shaping up as a great all rounder, brilliant at commuting and well up for a longer ride. This is a very easy bike to get on with, I am a relative new rider and as a 1st big bike this is possibly as good a bike you could have. I test rode most of the nakeds out there, in my opinion the nearest to this is the Street Triple (which I really liked), I went for the beemer as it was the one I was most comfortable on. So far I have not for a second regretted my choice, it is a bike you can grow with.
