I switched from the Corbin to the Russell Day Long simply because my ass still hurt on the Corbin. It was better than stock but just barely.

Yep, Russell does make seats for the S10.

I've had three Corbin seats and always considered them the Emperors Clothes of seats.

Have to act like you like it for the cost, yet I hated everyone of them. KTM and Corbin
must have the same foam supplier. Not bought another aftermarket seat since
Airhawk came into my butts life. (There's a set up line)

Corbin seats look good, but the ones I've sat on were harder than a brick. The Mustang & Sargent seats I've bought were good right out of the box.

I tried a few different seats on the Wee, including the Airhawk, but none felt comfortable till the Russell showed up. The S10 came with the Corbin and stock but neither of them were that comfortable, IMHO.

The Russell is ugly but I didn't buy the Wee or the S10 for the looks.

More info on the new GS... (more vicarious break down)

2013 BMW R1200GS Deliveries Delayed to Fix Suspension Issue

plus 2 Transport Canada recalls.

On a sad note, I wonder if that suspension glitch was what caused Kevin Ash's crash.

Well that's old news. The beta testers have moved onto to switch failures now.

The new KTM 1190R has been occupying my thoughts.

The good news is there is still plenty of room on the flatbed tow truck
to display your new bikes around town.

You know, silver lining and all.

They will be moving to a subscription only service soon. No more worrying about bulk payment up front.
Just "activate" your bike once a month at the local dealer for a monthly fee of $800...Software updates included in the price..

Activation module and Wifi kit sold separately.

Ky Gel will be provided free.

This is so KTM, they build a great bike but just miss a few so very important details such as it has to start and run every time you want to go for a ride.

If you're a S10 fan, you're throwing rocks out your glass house on this particular point.

Mark's post kinda' peaked my interest, too.


It's no secret that my 950 SE had a myriad of character "nuances".

As far as the Super Tenere, the ownership experience has been the exact opposite; It's been ready to go, on a moment's notice, everytime that I have thumbed the trigger. :knockonwood

Never failed me, but I get the point. But I am glad that the occasional hiccup is all that may be a small possibility.that is easily fixed in seconds. But to date that is all I seem to have on the books to think about much.

Seems the S10 glass house is at least made from 12mm toughened laminate.
