I have a 2007 F800ST, equipped with GIVI side bags and top box.

I bought this thing to travel on, but have since had LOTS of people tell me that it is only good for short trips. Too small, they say, for a multi-thousand mile vacation.

I love my bike and really want it to take me a lot of places (I'm retired and widowed so its just me - 1 up).

Anyone out there doing long tours on an 800ST? If so, can you offer any advice??

I'm heading out in early Spring. and hope to make the BMW event in Wyoming.
