Butter rim. The owner was not amused. It wouldn't hold air (Baja deja vu)



After finding out the Beemer didn't have a torx that fit the axle pinch bolt
we started aking anyone who came by. KTM to the rescue. The KTM with
us came back and had what we needed. Put a tube in so we could keep going.
This is starting to be my standard ride shot.



Erick, the owner wasn't so sure about the whole thing.

It's a V Stream tall. I was originally planning on triming it down. After using it
I'm getting spoiled by the total dead air behind it. The last off road ride I removed
it and rode without a sheild. This trip had temps in the low 40's to mid 50's on
the slab. Everytime I stuck my head around the sheild I'd gasp. I agree it looks
awfully big, but it sure is comfortable to hide behind.

This day ride ended riding at night to finish. If I had taken it off as originally planned
I would have been miserable with a straight on wind chill and open face helmet.

That's the second most studly picture of pluric I've seen. Must be the new windscreen keeping the hair "just so".

2010 1200 GS was on the ride I got to trade bikes on the slab. Wow what a motor!
Just blew the Tenere away in a drag race and roll ons. I mean bad.

He liked the feel of the Tenere and was dinking around doing parking lot manuvers.

The GS felt like a street bike with wide bars to me. Nice plush ride. Just the way it
sat and less leg room. Nice bike, I'll keep the Tenere over it. I'll just miss being the
ass kicker. Well at least on road. Off road the Tenere had no problem holding it's own.
Everytime I read this, I keep thinking, it shouldn't be that big of a difference. But I saw a posting in another place, about how the S10 had poor performance numbers, it was because they compared it in "T" mode versus "S" mode. I know pluric probably only knows "S" mode, so such a drastic difference does suprise me. I guess the clutch mod is in order then....

True! But I truly wonder what was up with all of those animals. If sheep are scared, what are a few stuffed animals?

I can't tell if you're joking or you're serious. I had a GSA, and it's been a long time since I've ridden one. While in Colorado this past summer, my buddy and I were doing a bit off pavement exploration and we traded bikes on our way back. I felt his GSA had the clunkiest transmission ever, a buzzy motor and nowhere near as smooth as the S10's when cruising. I preferred the brakes on the S10 better. My buddy was very surprised how smooth the S10 twin felt compared to the boxer.

Pluric: For the places you take your bike, a dry clutch like on the GS wouldn't last you very long! Then you need to BringMoreWallet.

To anyone considering a SuperTen, don't test ride it unless you bring a mini fuse with you to short out the clutch switch.. Lifting the restriction in the first three gears transforms the bike. I hadn't realized just how much until I reverted back to stock to see how it feels.. Off the line, it's a huge difference. It's gotta be the cheapest performance enhancing mod ever! You'd never see that in a Touratwat catalog!

I put a switch on the clutch mod, not sure why I'd want less power. As posted above, I finally tried it with the switch turned off after riding it with the clutch switch bypass in the ON position for several months.. You'll notice the biggest change when you're taking off from a stop.. Initially the bike lunges off the line, then feels like it's being held back.. Once you do that 50 cent / 10 second mod, the beast is unleashed. There's no going back!

This was a 2010 GS. He said it was the last year for a motor mod. It was stock.
Honestly it wasn't even close. My bike was in the S mode, has had the reflash done
and the clutch mod. Just by the seat of the pants it felt way stronger, Passing
mode 80-100 it just pulled so nicely. I thought it would have been like his old
1150, not at all. Come to think of it the last 1200 I was on was a new 06
and it was no where near this bikes performance.

I can see where people have been out test riding a couple models and been less
than impressed with the Yamaha's street performance. I knew it wasn't a barn burner
and this class doesn't demand that. Still I hate getting that schooled by a Beemer.
