    Trip to Bostswana

    I recently joined a group of adventure seekers for a organised trip up north to Botswana. Since there are not that many S10 bikes at events like these, but usually one or so and in time they get more and more, I was glad to see the team leader having his black S10 there. I attached a photo of...

    Report on Givi sidecase rack, with pictures

    Thanks for the detailed pictures on the rack/frame for the cases. I have a pair of cases but will make the frame up myself. The cases are actually plastic bins used for shipping welding machines. They look reasonably good and will only be used when I am on the occasional longer trips. Otherwise...

    What tires did your Super-Tenere come with?

    Did 9470 kilometres on the Metzlers and fitted a new one yesterday. Could have done another 1000 kms still but had a persistent slow leak, so decided to replace earlier. Well i dont know if I got good milage/likomters from it or not. Would like to know what milage one can expect from a rear tyre...

    tenere headlight adjuster

    Thanks for the post. I found that from day 1 the main beam was set to high. Having, what I call very bright and powerfull headlights, it is all wasted energy if the beam is set to high. I had to use the low beam to see more of the road. Anyone had the same experience? Now I will find a level...

    How many S10's do you think Yamaha sold in the US??

    I think they will sell a lot more, once the bikes are available in the US. In South Africa about 400 S10 bikes sold in 12 months and the biking population here is a minute small number against the US market and its potential. This is the kind of bike that sells itself, once available and visible...

    2012 Honda Crosstourer (VFR1200X)

    No no no and again No! They will surely not see me on an automatic bike on a dirt road! No! I just cannot even imagine it.

    Do you wear a 'flip up type' modular helmet ? What brand ?

    I use the Vega Summit with Bluetooth integrated headset. in my opinion the shell is very big, makes me look like a space man from mars and the helmet is too noisy. The flip up mechanism also not smooth to operate. The flip down tinted sun shield rattles, vibrates and is difficult to see through...

    OEM top case

    Hi Swagger, Glad you got the thing assembled again. I am planning to get the OEM topcase as well, since I like the over square look. What do you think of the build quality, and is it easy/quick to remove and attacha again to the bike? Your experience in this regard is appreciated, Regards, Andre

    UK May deal.

    :-[ My brain is too small to understand this! :'( In S Africa we pay an extra 12 000 Rand for that and it does not include the topbox. The US guys just dont get it or their bikes at all as yet! The UK guys get all the nice things for free! Sulk! :mad: Hope they give you two sets of...

    Another good video of the XT1200Z

    Any idea where the video of the S10 was made? Must be somewhere in North Africa I guess, but where? It was amazing to see so many S10's together in what looks like its natural habitat!

    Dealer Information on Delivery date

    Guys, I really feel a lot of compassion for you in the US having to wait it out for so long. In South Africa you can just walk into the dealership and drive out with your new bike within a few minutes even. Best will be to give the dealership a halfday notice because then they can get the...
