Hi From Croatia
« on: February 18, 2021, 05:15:05 AM »
Hi all,

Antonio here from Croatia happy 750gs owner. Got it as a bike after 24y break. Figured out I love more off-road than on-road and now I am sad I did not buy 850gs :/ I still enjoy my 750 and drive it wherever i feel like.

Hi and welcome to the forum from North Wales.

Shame you didn't go for teh F850 first if off--road is your thing, as it is more suited for off-road riding.
However, if you bear in mind the shortcomings of the 750 compared to the 850 for off-road and don't try to overdo things, I am sure you will be okay.
Pictures would be very welcome please.

Yep - if ya like riding more off-road which provides various challenging conditions (as compared to fire trails) the 850 will be the better tool than the 750, because of its stronger wire wheels and it has a bit more suspension travel. However, if you like your 750 you might/ may want to check-out some aftermarket companies which make off-road wheels?!?

Howdy. I got 750 too. Should be fine on basic off road.

Hi Koz.  Just put knobby tires and some proper armor on it and go have fun. Croatia is one of my favorite places. Be sure to post pictures
