By significant I assume Rick means the significant amount of failures that these bikes have. They would need a big forum to keep that volume of stuff in one place.

I dont usually feed the trolls but as everyine else is doing it and he did come out from under his brigde in the first place.

Yeah, living under a bridge must be a pretty boring life.

You've got it all wrong about the KTM's and Beemers though...failures equal 'character,' so they wear them like merit badges

I do wonder why Ricky hangs-out there though, seeing as he contributes absolutely nothing. He's probably a closet S10 fan.

Well this place went from a collection of informative posts by many on a new bike to a trollfest by a few

I'm 25 years old and I'm feeling like a teacher watching a playground full of little kids. I bet I'm one of the younger if not the youngest guys here.

Grow up. All of you. It's hard enough as it is to filter out all the info in this thread from the useless filler, without you guys and your stupid bullshit.

Huh.. I was looking for the wanker smiley a few posts ago and could not spot it... I must be getting to old for this shit.
Well done.

P.S - Leave us alone, we all gotta have a bitch and moan every now and then.

Greg.

Greg,

I really appreciate all your input and experience with the S10. My wallet will not be appreciating you when the bike finally gets here.

What makes you wish you went for the Touratech boxes?

Thanks,

Chris

I actually hate panniers, but must have something to lug my junk. I have a big wolfman bag that I will try first, then maybe the pelican or trekkers.

I am almost ready to pull the trigger on the fenda extenda and maybe the "City" Bags Connection tankbag. LOL

Big spender here.

Gotta agree with that. Junk haulers--all bags are for. Am looking at soft bags some of you guys mentioned .Thanks again. For my part, hope you trolls keep trolling. Love it all. Button pushers bring out some of the most interesting sqwabbles on here. Especially stuff like the above alledged "less significant large dual sport bikes". Hee hee. Good'n. What might they be & why? I got no "less significant dual sport"now.Waiting on the Tenere(my GS is dead), it's friggin SNOWING out anyway--longest winter I ever saw. So let'er rip. Gotta do something, ya noed.

Since there's not much to do here other than research future farkles and listen to annoying trolls

I have been following two adventure riders on Yamaha Tenere's to see how they endure the road

Everyone here already knows about Nick Sanders

Sadly no, it was from a S10-fan. Somehow that makes it worse doesn't it?

well, maybe, you were just a tad too harsh on us 'old timers'..... and also maybe, your chastising of the S10'ers, resulted in more 'useless filler' than the troll could have hoped for - Trolls are a sad bunch and one should just kick them in the face, as Wasp did and move on... we do that here in SA and it works quite well

I did hear a snivel and a cry for mommy, so that must have been one of them "old timers" not being able to take the criticism. But I'll play, I'll just shut my trap now I guess...
