So, despite your hypocritical attempt to insult him, you are *EXACTLY* like GrahamD?

And who, exactly, wrote "blank checks" for their PDP Super Tenere's?

I'm proud of all my bikes, both the foreign and the American. And my American cars, too. No doubt everyone here is proud of their vehicles. Doesn't mean you see folks listing minor sprocket and spring changes, etc.

But hey, to each his own. I just hope you're careful around all those mirrors around your house.

Ride less (no Tenere) = more time to post.

The discussion about the Highway Dirtbike's Ultimate Handguards--have they actually been fitted? What's the coverage like for weather?

I just sold a Triumph Tiger (06) and The hand protection was fantastic!! So...just thinking, how's the stockers compared to the HDB Ultimates?


I'm thinking hard now about those upgrades, and in paricular, the build steps for each...nothing against the fart huffing and dick measuring that goes on...but you know...just asking anyone done 'em yet?

Yeah Thagua over on Wasps thread fitted them

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=1702

but said he had to do some mods to get them to fit

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=1704

I'd be interested in them if they had a kit for the S10 - anybody have a contact at HDB?

Take a look at this thread here:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=679142

Chadx has a great relationship with Paul at HDB, and if you look later in the thread you'll see there is another 15% off coupon going on right now for HDB products.

I kind of liked the yellow, but really like the blue. Right now, I'd happily take delivery of a hot PINK S10, or any other color. I just want the bike. Mud will cover any poor color choices soon enough. August seems soooooooo far away.

The Metal Boot is trangulated so my geuss is its even sturdy enoung to rotate the bike on, when you need to change direction on a track that has not got enough safe space to mak a u turn or stitch change.
Thanks Rema! Anyone have direct experience with this plate? I'm not having any luck finding install diagrams. It would be nice if it required less than 8 fiddly bolts to change the oil.

This are the mounting points of the plate:





By the way, some cool data about the mileage. With my bike reaching 10K Km it's effiency is rising. Also note the wind influence with such big bikes. On this weekend trip to work (I'm a medieval reenactor and stunt fencer) I've done 400km, medium tail winds, fully loaded bike with GF on the back, average 115km/h, average 4,7l/100km. On the secound part of the trip, same 400km, medium to strong head winds, same load, average 140/150km/h, average 7l/100km.
Now the susprise, last part, 80km, little to no wind, same load but no GF, average 80km/h, 4,1l/100km

That's about 68mpg UK, 56mpg US. Not too shabby!
