The BMW's are F800R's, but I had to dump mine on the wife as every fooker else bought one. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously though, they're actually a really nice bike and between us we've had ours for 3 1/2 years now, which is a long time for me (I've owned 10 other bikes in that time :oops: :oops: ). Small and easy enough to nip around on, big enough to go somewhere on, and 60+ mpg. Oh, and second hand they're a bargain - what's not to like. Chris Pfeiffer Rep like Steve's comes with Motorsport colours and Akro as standard.

Bit concerned it's got too much power for our Phil.

He may prove me wrong though.

he won't reach the bloody floor from that .... not with a 'gammy' knee anyway :lol: :lol:

be good to see him hustle that around Cadwell mind :lol:

The F800 is a cracking little bike, nicely non intimidating, something that you can do everything on as Martin says.
Out of the box they look a little staid TBH, but a few chosen trinkets make them personal and a bit better looking.
A screen, bellypan,decal set and a hugger sets them up nicely. My exhaust is a little bit on the raucous side but not too OTT.
