Thats good to know Frank. I'm looking at that bike as a replacement for the Beemer. Jonas and I will have to go take a look.

Hi Phill,
Yea he is 1k over Sussex. And Sussex also included heated grips in the deal. No setup fees.
It will most likely sit. Ill ping him in Jan or Feb when he is softened up a bit.

Frank,
Good to know. Although I'm not a fan of that dealer.

Nah, I'm just a Starbucks riding poser seeking a low maintenance, well designed, fun and reliable bike.

The one mod I would recommend is lifting the power restriction in the first 3 gears: Shorting the clutch switch with a mini fuse; a 50 cent and 30 second mod. (as posted here previously)

You are preaching to the choir, eemsreno started that mod if I am not mistaken (well at least on the yamahasupertenere.com forum).

The price will have to be much lower than that to sell a S10. He will learn that after talking to the people who are interested in that bike.

Aw come on, admit it. You'd pay it if it was orange.

Oh and I'm fine GrahamD. Thanks for your concern. At my age getting laid takes a lot longer
than it used to and I thought it tacky to go on line during the pee break.

Aw, c'mon, Rick... You know you want one to replace your Dreamsicle. Otherwise why would you keep hanging around here?

No doubt you would only get yours in the special "Brokeback Mountain Edition" black, though! :ymca

Just a bit of info that the 2013 models have a MSRP of $14,790. Dealer invoice also went up, so it will porbably be difficult getting as good a price as many of us got on 2012 models.

Hey Frank, one of the local dealers was selling them for $11,995 a while back. Maybe a fly 'n ride.....

I would have thought he would have needed a special "Troll" model.

People should really support your local dealers when practical. I'm not talking about paying crazy money or even MSRP, but if the difference between local and "Fly-n-Ride" is only a couple of hundred dollars and you like the dealer otherwise, do the deal locally.

Motorcycle dealers have been hit really hard by this economy, so if you have a good one close, support them unless you want to see them disappear.

Amen, Bruddah! Amen!

When I was a Honda dealer I was always stunned by the guys who would drive 300 miles to save $200 on a motorcycle. Didn't matter to them that the other dealer they were driving to was that much closer to the manufacturer's warehouse and as such his freight on the bike was much, much less... Or that the other dealer was located in a much larger metropolitan market that allowed him volume I couldn't compete with... Etc., etc., etc.

But what stunned me even more was when that same guy, who had gone all that way to save a handful of dollars, would come crying to my shop when he had a problem and expected me to drop everything and instantly work on his bike... And also expected that I put him ahead of all those customers who had purchased motorcycles from my shop.

Only thing is that I wouldn't... Wouldn't put them ahead of my own customers. Not in a heartbeat.

And ya' know, it's funny... All those guys who did the drive-and-buy, or fly-and-ride, would then bad-mouth my store left and right, all while never even bothering to take it back where they bought it and see if that guy was any better. Oh, no! They praised that dealer for the great deal they got.

But it didn't matter, because those guys that did buy from me praised my service everywhere they went, and bought from us again and again. In fact, over 70% of our business over the years was repeat customers (in both that Honda shop and our car dealerships along the way), and ya' know... Each time they bought a vehicle they got a better and better deal each time.

In other words, folks... Remember the door swings both ways. If you have a good local dealer, support him, and he'll support you. Don't support him and one day he won't be there.

To this day people still tell me they wish I was still the Honda dealer here, and despise the guy who is now. He has a dirty, dingy, dark store with a lousy service and parts department. And I go to the Kawasaki/Yamaha dealer...
