You'll find the 800 easier to ride and handle. It does lack a little of the 955 torque but it's not far behind. But should you have posted this in the "Roadie" section?

No, my mistake. Some while ago the Beakers used to be the XC and the Roadies used to be the er, roadie model. Now it seems that someone changed Beakers to include all 800s.  :icon_scratch:

Hey Dave, welcome to the 800 club!, My Steamers currently on Ebay after Danwarb decided to escape to Singapore not long after buying it.... No connection, I'm sure.
BTW looking at your screenshot, did you know there's a "mark all messages as read" button at the bottom of the index page??
