I'm beyond that. Look forward. Besides, I like the Talking Heads.

And this is the map pocket I went with. Wolfman Map Pocket (small), attached with some adhesive backed velcro. The velcro strips fit about perfect in the box ribs, with slight trimming.



Cheapest place I found was tacking it on to a free shipping order from here; http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...20map%20pocket

Thanks for that link. I ordered one just to check it out. You never know sometimes
what other uses it may have. Some good ideas from you all already.

I used to run a Eclipse tank bag on other bikes and loved it but it does not fit the tank on the S10. Any suggestions or images of tank bags that people actually use and like on the S10?

This one is working well for me. Solid mount, doesn't move at all, and easy to clip on and off.

I just spent a half hour catching up on the latest pissing matches.. so a noob comes here to complain about the signal to noise ratio in this thread is very low and it turns nasty... The personal attacks have been punted this time. I'll be issuing vacations next time. Keep it civil or take it to PM. Threats (of all kinds, veiled, or implied), personal attacks and attacks on family members are all bannable, as per the posted site rules.

I just finished cleaning up a pissing match in the GSW broken timing chain thread where owners had to defend bmw's honor when an inmate mentions he'll stick to his suzuki instead, I'm a bit wiped out now..

Man, owning this bike is boring.. there's no issues to keep up on, no new software updates to solve the latest issue, no leaky waterpumps or grenaded engines, so Pluric and his posse fill up this thread with lots of banter.

Pluric, is it true? Am I in your posse? I realize it might take more than GB's unofficial declaration. But I DID get my first ever removed-post.



A bit liberating. I never get in trouble. Maybe I'll get a tattoo.

Just a suggestion you rebel you.

Merry Christmas to me. A bit late but the thought is still there.
Woody's delivered!



Spokes were never the problem and I doubt they ever will be. Wow.



I'm running out of excuses now for not riding. The weather. Yeah that's the ticket,
the weather.

I was thinking more along the lines of Marlon Brando's The Wild One and his "gang".

Please do. The only thing I have seen in months is a dead fan motor. I am having it shipped to me as a souvenir to keep me going through the lean times.

Mine has done 14000 km`s now and the only faults so far has been: Difficulties to start once but guess it was my own fault to flood the engine, easily solved with wot (wide open throttle).
Broken rear gear rack, think I loaded it too heavy... thought it would manage but the plastic seems to be weak.
Can not think about anything else at this stage :-o
Maybe it will break one day, keep you posted.

Yes. Same setup on the rear. So far it's held air great. My only concern is
if these bend to the point of not holding air and I have to remove the stem
for a temporary tube. How do I reseal it back to tubeless?
