Three or four inches of ice in North Texas, we aren't going anywhere.

Hello fellow Ténérians! (can you even say so..?)
And greetings from icy Finland!

I've been wanting to change my ride to more versatile bike. Biggest problem was to find suitable option for my demands. After months of reading reviews and watching YouTube videos I was ready to join the Team Yamaha. This thread has also been very helpful, so Thanks for great information package so far!

So I traded my old reliable Honda Blackbird for S10. Got a fair deal of unridden matt gray coloured '12 model with very good oem accessories. Actually the bike was still almost twice compared for the US price due to our tax for vehicles.. Anyways, now all I've got to do is to wait for 5months until I'll be able to ride it. Winter season will be soooo loooong this time...

Just got a FedEx tracking update. They tried to deliver my rear shock today.
Stoltec sent it 'signature required' for delivery. Patience has never been one of
my virtues.

I know, First World Problem.

I like Corbin seats. The Corbin for my Super Tenere was too hard for me.

Let's see, where were we.....

Oh yeah!! Motion Pro bead breaker....work GREAT!!!

Got a set, tried it on my buddies Wee Strom front tar that had been on since new....about 5 yrs...

Popped the bead without drama or difficulty. Very impressed with this and recommend a set in your traveling tool kit.

Now we return to our regular blather.....

I've had three Corbins. Three too many for me. Make OEM KTM feel like a memory foam pillow.

I'm sticking with an Airhawk.

I have a corbin on mine. It is extremely hard. At no point has it been really comfortable, but at the same time, at no point has it even been truly unbearable.

I will be looking into other replacements or rebuilding the stocker soon.
