The previous S10 link thread suffered a fatal flaw and has been closed.

To help Graham add links to his post, you may make your suggestions here.

Yes! Thanks for the great info and taking care of this for a second time around! It is a great resource.

R3B 10-21-2010 08:48 AM

Well according to Wikipedia Gramams work is Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious !

But in adding everything, perhaps the Threads themselve can be a Top Item in the list, so newcomers can see instantly if their question about xyz has its own thread? ;-)

Good point. I may have to start a Thread Thread rather than a link thread

and then a Cross Reference thread and then .... --> Thread wars!:lol3

I'll have a think about that when I feel game enough to modify the new page I'll put in a Beta Test section.

Kind of feels like a 1200cc version of the 800GS, better that the 12GSA on the road..yes. Getting on my KTM SER after felt like climbing on a 450 dirt bike. So she quite heavy but very stable, head buffeting over 80mph is unbearable. Overall as a road tourer 7.5/10 but to seriously mix in the dirt...Id say no thanks.

You're in the wrong thread.
