Thanks for the offer,
At the moment I'm thinking of getting rid of the ST. It's listed over on ADVrider.
Originally my intention was, buy the ST, try it to see if I liked the engine. Which I do. Then add the 800GS once they have it sorted. I liked the idea of parts commonality. But I find the ST a little to cramped for my 50 year old body.
If I can't sell it I might trade it on a GS. But to be honest after 7 BMWs the roundel has lost some luster for me lately.
Besides I really like the Versys. I don't need to break the sound barrier much any more. I don't ride two up much. I do take some longer trips. I just want to be able to explore some off the beaten path places when they come up. I used to take my Seca 750 everywhere, guess it didn't know it wasn't an adventure bike. I had a ton of fun with that bike and that is what I want to recapture.
