    Trailering a ES Tenere?

    If the trailer has a suitable bar under the front wheel strap the front axle both sides. Never the bars.

    UK to Greece ride May 2022.

    It wasn’t out of choice:), the weekend started out ok, but temps plummeted so we just carried on, but where salt had kept the main roads passable, the gritters don’t venture up those lanes!! We’re stopping up at Brynteg for the week over Easter. Same as we did last year. Decided there’s plenty...

    UK to Greece ride May 2022.

    We’re up there next week, stopping a few miles away, but I’m there for a day at MickExtance offroad school and won’t have time to go anywhere else. But we are then up on Angelsey for a week. Tried to do that road north to Bala from the lake a few years back, but it was wayto icy.

    The anything thread.

    I'd forgotten about this. Mate took a pic of me trying an S10 at the MotoGP at silverstone back in about 2012. Little did I know....

    Arrow silencer (UK sale)

    The wife bought me this last year to try, but I’ve decided I prefer the standard, it’s just a bit too loud for my old eardrums. I’ve never really been an aftermarket exhaust guy, I even went back to standard on my Bandit….. So just looking to get her money back. It’s not new, was SH when we...

    Hard panniers breaking

    Wow, in pretty much 25 years back on bikes, most of which I’ve been a regular on bike forums, particularly UKGSER(for20yrs), I’ve never heard of a single issue of this. And yet, the thoery is a fair one, and in theory one that could affect any bike with panniers fitted. My initial thoughts are...

    Discontinuation of the S10?

    Yes I noticed recently that the latest models now come with exciting Biege graphics in place of the yellow ones of the last couple of years. Is this the only change? So either my theory is bollocks or they’re holding back adding the graphics until they’re shipped out. Don’t know about the...

    The description made me smile - 170000 mile S10 on ebay

    So can anyone in the uk better that mileage. Think its the highest I’ve heard of. My mate Charlie has 70+ on his 16 plate, and even though he’s bought a KTM he still seems to prefer the S10. KTM needs a big service and he’s held off cos of the cost of it.

    What tyres does your S10 wear?

    I,m onto my second rear, fronts still looking good after nearly 10k, and still gripping and tipping in much the same. Its looking like it‘ll last ok. They do tip in real easy though, nearly fell off first bend after fitting them in place of the crappy OE B’stones. I’ve a set of Tourances...

    Stock Parts | Keep or dispose

    Another that keeps everything with the aim that it goes back on to sell and the accessories get sold seperately unless I’m upgrading to a newer model that can use the same accessories. The Givi Airflow screen cam in a decent sized box so so far everything thats come off has gone inside that.

    New member in UK

    Crash bars finally fitted. pretty pleased with them, I didn’t want full scaffolding. One slight concern is the kit didn’t include longer bolts for the front engine mounts and I’m not happy there’s enough threads going into the block now. So Tuesday I’ll pop one back out and see if a mate can...
