When I asked the Yamaha guy what else was available, he said "Cruisers". I realize that buying is different than taking a free test ride, but I think Yamaha doesn't quite get it.
So....what did you think of the S10 after your test ride?
I realize the San Mateo show isn't the best place to try one (ride through clogged urban streets for a few blocks....wheeeee), but it's better than no ride at all.....
