Good point about the S10. She's after the RGS market.

Peak? Perhaps.
It seems like from 2011 on up, I keep READING about how DS sales keep going up. Granted, I started researching on Jan of 2013. I'm one of the consumers that have driven up the numbers.
If the USA actually started to have small SUV off-raoding diesel cars, maybe I'd go back to having a cage instead of a MC. Hahaha.
In my opinion, Adventure-Style motorcycle sales are increasing due to the comfortable riding position, improved suspension, and increased power.

Baby Boomers and Empty Nesters are buying the type of bikes they have always wanted . . .

Unfortunately, most Adventure-Style bikes are getting too big and heavy to enjoy off road trail riding.

I am trying to make my own light weight, comfortable, smooth and powerful bike for Adventure-type rides . . .

A 500X with a FZ-09 engine would be sweet . . .
