Rented a new 08 F800GS BMW to ride up the coast near Sanoma California last week with some friends.

I'm in LOVE with this bike!!!!!!!  So much fun to ride!!!

Anyone want an 07 R1 ;)

That whole series of 800's are just awesome. I really like the F800 ST, not that I have had the chance to ride one yet.

Well if I had known you could have rented a bike and rode with us.

It was a bit of a strange ride, 4 bikes, all 800cc ???(TDM850, VFR800, Bonniville 800, F800GS) How often does that happen??


We did 235 miles that day.

Wish I had the money, I would consider buying your R1 if I did.  Want to trade for a spec miata (very competitive car)

those all sound better than my ford focus rental car.    :D

did you make it up woodside on any of your rides?  despite not having a bike I still headed up there and had dinner at Alice's one night.

We dropped the bikes off and had dinner in a cool little French place tucked away in an alley in the financial district.  Then went for more drinks in the top floor of one of the tallest buildings in SF. (555 California). Very clear out and could see the whole bay area from the top floor. Cool stuff.

There is a place called Dubbleju motorcycle rentals that has a whole bunch of BMWs for rent in downtown SF. (there were 4-5 places to rent from, but this was the only one with the BMW and Triumph we wanted). http://www.dubbelju.com/
