I'm marathon watching "Long Way Round" for like the 3rd time in a row now, and I swear that's the same bike. Is it?
Nah, that's my bike's MUCH bigger brother. :p Charlie and Ewan were riding BMW R1200GS Adventures, which weigh considerably more than an F800GS. I've had to pick mine up more than a few times (it likes to take dirt naps), but I wince just thinking about picking up one of those pigs. :eek-30:

Not that hard to be honest. It was pretty rough when I got it. Painted it myself. Parts are cheap-as-chips out of Asia (but be careful, a lot are crap. Especially chrome stuff).
Mechanically theyre incredibly solid.

This is my '06 Honda Goldwing on the day I picked it up.

Here's a picture of my old 1980 Honda 750F shortly after I got it. Sorry for the pic being so bad, it's a photo of a pretty bad Polaroid.

Very nice Honda CB! I'm a Honda fan, and had two V-fours.

Here's a scan of an old photo from my Minolta Maxxum 5K from 1990.

Always wanted a VFR 1000. My last motorcycle was a 1982 V45 Sabre. Considered it my Japanese BMW, smooth V4 with shaft drive. I can't seem to locate a picture of it, which wouldn't surprise my wife at all.
