BMW of Denver had their open house today. After demoing the F800ST and F800S, I must say it is a great engine. Plenty of torque and nice top end. I saw 4,500 rpm at 80mph. Don't know what it will top out at. My friend said he was doing 115mph in 4th gear. The bike is a little small for me (6'2", 260lbs, 32" inseam). I can't wait to see the F800GS. With that engine and a longer, taller chasis this could be the bike to give the DL650 a run for its money.
