A problem related to the axle shaft wall thickness determined BMW of North America to recall model year 2008 F800 GS motorcycles. According to the German manufacturer, the axle shaft wall thickness may not have been manufactured according to specifications resulting into the possibility of the axle shaft to deform and increase the risk of accidents.
The correction consists in dealers inspecting the axle shaft assembly and replacing or repairing the necessary components free of charge. Although BMW has not yet started the owner notification schedule, all 2008 BMW F800 GS owners can call BMW at 1-800-831-1117 and see the solving of their possible problem from there.
Taking such a measure over a specific model does not necessarily mean that all bikes recalled are affected and that are imminent dangers riding down the streets, but that the manufacturer has a responsible approach towards their customer safety and try to exclude all possible risks of a crash due to mechanical failure.
Harrison Ford has recently been spotted riding his BMW F800GS R1200GS and it looks like he’s enjoying it a lot. Although not a notorious motorcyclist from Hollywood, Ford gives an important lesson of motorcycle safety as he wears the entire protective gear in a sunny day. The bike looks like brand new (or maybe it isn’t ridden that much as we all know how busy actors are) and the street tires show where Harrison Ford likes to ride most.

A.C. Schnitzer radically transforms the already impressive BMW F800GS off-roader into a ready to hit the track hypermotard. The tuners have simply added 17-inch wheels wearing road rubber and retuned the suspensions for street use.
The engine remains the same 800cc unit developing 85 horsepower, as well as the entire bike, except the previous mentioned changes and adjusting. This upgrade, if you will, took place in the German performance shop and it didn’t took more than a few hours once all the parts were there.
Who knows, maybe BMW will be inspired by this creation and add it to their lineup. I sure know it looks good.
