Hi all

Looking to buy a new XL700, but wondered what the consensus is on their ability to survive winter without disappearing under a white and brown fur. I would look after it and use the essential ACF50, but I do like to ride in all weather and on salty roads. So what's the verdict - capable of staying in good nick if looked after - or buy an F800GS instead?

Cheers
Ian

Never known any japanese bike that likes salt, and I don't know how durable the finish is on modern BMs but I will bet my life the BM will survive it better.
