On top of that I got lucky: filled out the service questionnaire about my purchase experience from Yamaha, and was the winner of an iPad mini! Cherry on top.
This was end of last year, I'll pull the exact date if someone is interested. Hope this can help others establish a base price. The bike had no options.

Cheers, Ben.
Only in America... Instead of an iPad, every year I get the tax bill of the same value. Add the insurance cost, road tax, eco crap and the inspection BS, I could get three of them.
What the hell... It's worth it!

DS vs. Dakar

150/70-17
Tiger 800XC, lots of off road trails and fast slab riding
I need new rubber, and I could only find the DS version. Can't wait another month for a Dakar.
Anything to worry about? I understand I may have more of a pinch flat potential...
A friend is running the Scout K60 and I wanted to compare performance/life against his.

Just got 9k mi out of the regular E07, just installed the Dakar version. Never had any issues with regular E07 & other Folks have had great results with the Reg E07.
If you running 30psi...a pinch flat ain't going to happen. I have dropped to 20 psi for offroad & no pinch flats.
My front E07 has some small cracks in the tread, others have commented that they too have got cracking as well. Tire is holding up good even with small cracks...About to put Heidenau up front soon....

I have run multiple E07's on my Stelvio and average well over 12000Km from the rear.
I typically run 32psi in the rear no matter the surface I am riding on. I always have all the bags on and they are typically full of stuff plus I am not exactly petite and the tires hold up very well.

my 140/80/18 E07 lasted 7500 miles.
30 psi.
E 09 Dakar, approximately half that mileage.
TKC 80's for the front, always.

Here we go again...











These handguards are way more protective then the oem ones. Don't forget to buy the optional spoiler (red in photo) cause they're useless without them.

Had my Goldwing for 10 years with no regrets (52,000 trouble free mi). Sold my Husky this last spring (been thinking about a Adventure bike ever since). Did the handshake deal on a White S10 (in the crate) this weekend. Interesting deal, He wasn't interested in my wing as a trade (being a Yamaha dealer and possibly sitting on it for the winter). So.... I went to the local Honda dealer to work out a "trade in price" (got over 60% of original price) then back to Yamaha to get his OTD price (less Title & tax fee's). Final deal... 12,250 for The S10 They will run paperwork as if Goldwing was in the trade deal (saved on taxes) then Honda buys Wing from Yamaha after initial deal is done. I consider that a Win Win Win deal. I might only get some break in miles before the snow flies but then I can farkle up this winter.

I thought about discussing that with our local BMW dealer...
