Its the Vstream large or the largest one they have for Tenere.

It puts some pressure on the Tenere bracket mounts a bit and they bend in a little at 95 MPH. Besides that it works pretty good. The Madstadt helps with adjusting it to suite my needs but I might be making a reverse fitting so it is not so far from the initial mounts. Madstadt has it out about an inch from oem mount.

I think i can create something that will bring it in closer.

If you just mounted it to existing oem mounts it would be better then using the madstadt I think for wind buffeting. My Head is fine and no buffeting but my chest and torso and shoulders get hit hard. Go figure.

Not planning to get a '14. But I hope to be up there next week to drop off for service.

Although it's a very interesting (massive) dealership, there's no reason to go there just to order. Most of us just ordered over the phone for the original PDP Teneres. Just call Larry the General Manager (866-766-1495) and I'm sure he'll happily get your order on the books. Actually suspect any salesperson can set you up. That's not a special price, it's just their price to anyone.

Yeah, if you didn't notice the first headlight go out and then if you are riding along at night and didn't notice the second headlight went out it means that you have consumed too many inhibiting substances and could die as a result and their is a risk that family would blame YAMAHA's wiring harness and win.

Others would probably just say, Oh damn no headlights and pull over.

Really starting to want one of these with the changes Yamaha has made to the 2014. Current rides are FJR and V-Strom 650. S10 would likely replace both which is what scares me. I really like my FJR and V-Strom. Also don't see myself treating a $15k machine the same care-free way as I've treated my V-Strom purchased used for $4k. Any reason to keep an FJR with an S10?

It depends on how you want to use the S10 and how you've been using the FJR and Strom. You're comments make an argument that you might as well keep the V-Strom and continue to beat it up with abandon. The S10 is a big, heavy bike. It will do sport touring just fine, and is amazingly capable off pavement, but you have to accept some risks off pavement. Your skills may vary.

The FJR has better weather protection and is certainly more powerful. Regardless of what some pundits will say, the FJR is smoother than the S10, in part by the nature of the inline four motor. Ergos depend on the rider. Some find the higher pegs, in relation to the seat, of the FJR less comfortable than the more 'standard' position of the sit upright S10. I consider them equal, but different.

The S10 can do both tasks that you now ask from the FJR and Strom, but that doesn't necessarily mean you want to accept the limitations of that compromise.

I put over 160k on an '04 FJR and have 71k on the S10 now. I like both bikes, but the S10 allows me exit pavement with greater comfort/less stress. I exited pavement quite a bit with the FJR, but the S10 has a skid plate and crash bars, the FJR had a lot less ground clearance and more plastic to worry about.
