    Just purchased a 2016 F800GT

    Yesterday I purchased a 2016 F800GT with 1.8K miles, picked it up with my trailer and took it directly to the local BMW dealership for an annual service. When I get it back I will offer my views on a first ride.

    Here's a pic:

    Looks nice.
    Looks like it has the F800ST bags instead of GT bags.

    Thanks.

    Sorry. I don't know the difference. They remove very easily -- that I know.

    A better pic of the bags:

    Here's a picture with GT bags.
    I like the looks of the slimmer ST bags.

    The ST bags come with a waterproof liner. Did the previous owner remember to include the liners?

    We had similar bags on our K1300Ss.

    You know, I took the bags off before dropping off the bike at the local BMW dealership and I left them with the keys so I can't even open them up to see.

    You can open them without a key unless you locked them.
    We almost always left our unlocked.

    OK, didn't know that. I'll check them later. Thanks.

    Well, unless someone put the wrong graphics on this bike, I think it surely is a GT:

    Welcome! Enjoy your new bike! I bought a '13 5 years ago and love it! It's the perfect bike for me. Touring, short trips - all good!

    Lee, I plugged the VIN into this website (https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls) and it came back as a 2016 F800GT. The local BMW dealer entered the VIN and confirmed it was a 2016 F800GT and my insurance company Geico confirmed the VIN as a 2016 F800GT. And one other bit of info: The F800ST was not produced in 2016. So, I don 't know WTH HSVPhil is on about ????
