Nothing, it relaxed in the garage while I took the F800GS out for a spin. Well the spin turned into an entire day... got a rear tire puncture!

A call to my dealer and they came out 20+ miles to rescue me and trailer the bike to the shop! They were out of an inner tube and could not replace the tyre there and then...although they did try. All this on a Saturday afternoon! They told me to take any of their demos for my 60 miles ride home and keep it for the next few days! I picked another F800GS. The dealer (Pandora's Motorsports) in Chattanooga is simply outstanding! They are going to have me as a customer for a very long time.

So the bike will have new front and rears and a service and will be ready on wednesday.

So while the Diavel was resting, I discovered what having a flat rear feels like going at 55 mph and on twisties!
I do a ton of Dual Sporting and never leave home w/out my BRR kit. This pack has saved many of ride days for me (or peeps that break down riding with me) over the years. This could be a great addition to your F800GS.

Took my son on an easy (i.e. Urban mode) 50+ mile ride (about 2 hours) along the country roads. We have the Sena SMH10 bluetooth devices to talk. Beautiful weather is finally upon us and we were both comfy the whole time.

Just got home from my 1st decent trip. 900kms from perth to Albany and back. The standard seat was more comfortable than i thought it would be for multiple hours in the saddle. I really want a sy of the shad panniers as the dp top box just doesn't hold enough for a long weekend ride.
Overall I'm really happy with the bikes performance. Now in waiting for my sc exhaust and will be ordering a tuneboy soon.
