Check the terminals, there have been some monday morning lead where the terminals werent crimped all the way down, resulting in spike induced blowouts, if there is slack between cable and terminal or terminal doesnt have enough spring action, let your dealer fix it, or if you are handy and have the neccesary high grade crimping tool, do it yourself, check it by pushing the bulbsockt wit only one terminal over the lamp, i know i dant have to tell you. But others might not have the necessary experience...

Go get some karate lessons (Yoko geri et Mae geri being very handy for this kinda exercice), believe me, I know!

Looking at the quads and the two posters, you must bleed blue. Probably have a tuning fork tat.

It is odd right now I'm very Yamaha heavy. I'm not that Japanese brand conscious.
The last few years Yamaha and Suzuki made models I like. Honda seems to be a
little bland. I do have several of Honda's scooters and a couple of their quads.

So yes, for now color me blue. It's not like it's a bad thing.

If it makes you feel any better it was an ebay score. Back in the day $80 for the FJR poster.

$28 gets you a Tenere poster. Poor S10 can't get any respect I tell ya.

I'm more into Aikido and Tai Chi Chuan, but like The Flow even more :-)

Thanks for all the responses. I've yet to see one in person, taking a family trip next month, I'm going to check some larger towns. This bike looks great and by the time I can wrestle the purchase they will have a few years production and the bugs will be discovered and worked out......

Been in other markets for a couple of years already. I don't know of any known common bugs.
Go find one. Great bike.

Thinking about crossing from Panama to Colombia in my own trip planning - not sure I want to be doing this with the Ten if I don't have to... but still, looks fun and more adventure than doing the plane trip. Probably cheaper...

And there is some reward for the effort, once you get the bike on the boat...
