I agree!!!

Giant dude can ride. Must have made some mods to the abs, lots of lockup rear wheel slides... Catchy music too.

Sure is neat mister.

What-ever-it-is sure kicks ass. I didn't know there was a super H2P version of the Super 10. Pretty.

Hey guys things have slowed down a bit on this thread since US delivery dates were changed to November. No reason the Aussies and Euros and Sarth Efricans should stop posting here though. We in the US will try to keep our bitching and moaning restricted to the other S10 threads, if you'll only give us some "red meat" to chew on here while we wait!

Is anyone's interested there's an S10 vs GS thread going on over in Oilheads

Old Git Ray, I'm sorry but I used your name in vain over there....

I love some of the comments over there

The old "non switchable ABS - deal breaker" They love that one.

I'll save a wad of cash and install a $60.00 switch if I REALLY need to thanks.

Keep correcting the info. It seems hard to accept for them.

Cheers
Graham
