Re: F800gs or Tiger 800 XC?

I had this same dilemma and bought the F800. Agreed the XC probably has the nicer engine but if nothing else I figured the higher volume of BMWs on the road meant that there was a) more chance of getting accessories or spares cheaply either new or secondhand and b) the parts for the BMW would be mor...

Re: Riding with empty panniers.

I ride with the top box on all the time but only fit the side panniers for trips. I find the top box so handy for throwing stuff in, plus I keep waterproofs etc in it.

Have a bump.
