There are quite a few if you search around. Here is a set Greg tried on in Australia with pics from SWMotech: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...595933&page=29

I'm not a fan of soft luggage, but sure they have pros and cons like all things.

Thanks. Really. I just began looking for soft bags for the S10. Will check your guys' out. I like softies because you can stuff'em,they can give some shock absorbtion without damage(sometimes)in fallovers & they don't break your leg. In deep sand my foot got drug off the peg & ended up under a Jesse bag on my GS. Broke the leg. There was a picture awhile ago of a GS rider on ADVrider's home page. He was climbing in soft sand & his leg was going back toward his Jesse's just like mine did. Hope he faired better. Picture might still be there. It can happen.

Hey that's me!

The NelsonRigg stuff is awesome. Plan on using them for a long time.

Took the S10 out for 400km's in the Belgian Ardennes forest today. Lots of fun, bit too much traffic to my liking (holidays) but for some reason I never really got stuck behind traffic for very long...DAMN this thing is fast!

I used the Ortleib Dry Bag saddlebags with my KLR and plan to use them on the Super Tenere when planning any off road rides. I have a set of the new Trax Evo bags that I will use for on road trips.

Does anyone in the US want a Waspworks grip heater switch relocator? I bought one before I had a bike and I just picked up my new 990 on Tuesday.

If interested please PM me.

Thanks.

Thanks for the soft bag info,all. Those NelsonRig bags look like they'd do fine. Need big bags for 2 up camping. I put a duffle over the rear rack too. Tank bag too. Can carry a lotta stuff. I still have the Jesse bags off my ol'GS but won't use'm. I was on my way to the BMW store(150 miles away) to buy another GS(hate to miss a whole riding season) the morning my dealer called about the new August delivery date for the S10s.I can live with that(it's snowing now where I live--BIG snow year here). My favorite riding places are still 6-8 feet under snow.Even the desert's wet ! Good year to take an August delivery. Am going to love this bike(esp after a GS). Been lusting after a Yamaha 'GS" for years. Thanks again. Big help.

+1. Have these and they are the trick. Easy on/off and ride tight on the bike. You won't even know they are there. Made in USA

Nice. The 990 is the very best of the large dualsports for those who ride off pavement.

Nick Sanders, of round-the-world-record-breaking-on-an-R1 fame, is going for another record - Prudhoe Bay and to Ushuaia AND BACK. Guess what bike he's on this time?

Hey Trevor,

His blog still has him stuck in Peru. Been following that and wondering when the next update would be?

His spot has him traveling UP to Prudhoe Bay about an hour ago.

I'm a confused little bunny.

Cheers
Graham

Presentation

Hi guys..

I've been lurking here for some time, falling in love with the S10 with every comment you said about the bike...well today I took my son and left a downpayment for a 3600 km (2250 miles) 2011 S10, that looks brand new

It comes with all the first edition equipment (cases, skid plate, light protection), in a beatiful blue color...next wendsday I will be able to ride it and share with you my impressions (coming from a FZ6, I think I will have a lot say...jajaj)


Bye

Jean Claude
