And a few of us have had the melted headlamp sub-harness issue, but that seemed to only happen to some of the earliest released ones. Haven't heard of it happening to later production ones. I have to say Yamaha handled mine on warranty at the time. Took a little head-butting since apparently I really was "the first", but after that they were golden.

There's been just a couple of rear pumpkin seal leaks, but so far there's been so few as to almost be nil. Lots of bitchin' about the inaccuracy of the speedo and instruments, but mostly it's nothing more than that.

Last but not least there's the (mythical, IMHO) "hard starting problem" that seems to attack only around the house...

Pluric already covered his brake line clip...

I think that's about it, isn't it? Can anybody think of anything else at all? More important, can anybody relay any incident at all where a Super Tenere broke and failed to get its rider home?

Even one?

You forgot the major recall from 2010 with that rear rack. YOU KNOW WHERE THREE PEOPLE LOST THERE LOADS..OMG!

That's right I forgot we have a had a recall

I feel better now. It must be a proper bike.

Stopped putting so much in the pie hole. No special diet, just quit the non-essentials.
My son was 260 at his peak and is now 205. He does the crazy apples only and some
supplement thing. I mainly am going for smaller proportions and try to avoid grazing
when I get home. My wife is a great cook and there is always some new treat on the
counter. It ain't easy.

Sounds like the same diet I'm doing, will keep persevering.

Since it's already been covered that there is nothing more to talk about in this
thread I don't feel like I'm derailing something that there is noting to derail. Right?
So...... here is what I walked into after work, snicker-doodles hot out of the
oven.



Home made lasagna and bread sticks. Make that 10 lbs I've lost.

I think your son's onto something. Better eat an apple before you leave the office!

To get this back on track lets talk about some self made issues with the bike. Anyone got some insight in cutting the ugly rear fender licence plate mount piece he wants to share? Any tips or things to watch out?

For mounting the licence plate i already thought something up

If you need someone to remove all that temptation...let me know. I can help.

it's a shame you live so far away from Catalunya. I could invite you yo the gastronomic event I organize at the end of this month. Pluric could recover this wheight that uses to test the ST rims and his wife to learn new recipes from the best chefs in the world.

It must be even colder there than here.

Looks are such a personal thing. I couldn't even remember what the rear fender looks
like without checking it out again. What you have concept wise looks to have strong
mounting points. I guess it's kind of a "If it ain't broke" thing. From what we are finding
out as owners we may have to wait a long tiime for something to break to have to fix it.

Amigos! Saludos from Virginia!
It is with very mixed emotions that I am selling my faithful '05 R1200GS tonight. "GSPDBILL" has rented a trailer, and is leaving Nashville now to pick her up (18 hours round trip!). I have read most of this thread and you seem very satisfied with your Teneres! Many of the ones I have seen for sale in the FM are being sold due to job, money or "wanting a smaller bike" issues. Besides the weight, I have heard nothing but good things about the S10. I have corresponded via PM to ask some questions from a couple of you and I thank you for your time.
Anyways, I am posting to request your eyes and ears. I have narrowed my hunt to a few models, of course the S10 being in the top three along with the F800GS and the 800 Tiger. The S10 gets many bonus points over the other two due to tubeless tires, shaft drive, four dealers within 30 minutes, legendary Yamaha reliability and price!
I keep my eyes on CL, eBay and the Flea Market every day, but if any of you have or hear of any S10's for sale in the lower 48 states, please send me a PM, thanks!

P.S. The best new deal I have found is $11,499+Tax, title, tag on a leftover 2012.
