The BMW F 800 GS is a motorcycle that can be successfully used every day, but it will work just as well during a summer trip on winding mountain routes. Small consumption and a 24-liter tank (located under the seat), make it necessary to refuel about every 430 km. The second advantage is the really comfortable position of the driver and passenger, who has at his disposal two solid handles located on the sides of the motorcycle. The seat itself is quite hard, which may cause slight discomfort after several hundred kilometers of driving. The fairing perfectly fulfills this task – only high-powered motorcyclists will complain about the wind.
After installing the trunks, especially when you set off with the passenger, you can adjust the pre-tension of the rear spring and the degree of damping its reflection. The suspension works well both on asphalt surfaces and in the field, where GS can be really hard to fight. This is encouraged by the engine, high ground clearance and a 21 inch front wheel.
The BMW brake system consists of a double disc on the front wheel with a diameter of 300 millimeters and a single disc at the rear. For the effective operation of the front brake, use a bit more force, but the whole makes a good impression. The tested motorcycle was fitted with an ABS system that worked very well even on rough surfaces (it weighs only 1.5 kilograms). German engineers, however, thought about the possibility of disabling this system – to the delight of off-road enthusiasts.
