Lots of comments!

Here and Here.

Extreme summary: They're a great compromise tire: They're good on road, good off road, and get great mileage. If you need a great tire on pavement, there are smoother options. If you need a great tire off-road, there are knobbier options. If you're willing to sacrifice some feel on pavement (they do squirm), and some grip in the nastiest of conditions off-road (that solid center slips on hard packed slippery clay/grass), then these tires should last you 10,000+ enjoyable miles.

Looking fwd to the weekend at the AMA S10 Yamaha Blueridge ADV Ride. My ACL surgery was just over a month ago, and feeling good. Will have to keep the ride(s) simple, but I can't wait to ride with other enthusiasts. Like I stated before, I will hit the road about 900 am and slowly make my way to Morganton. I am camping, and plan on setting up then heading back into town for an evening beer.

See y'all up there.

Cheers,
Dan

Need a bit of advice. Bike wouldn't fire tonight. Cranks, but won't fire. Slight whiff of petrol - so i'm guessing flooded. I might have opened the throttle a bit on start up.
Before i tear it down i'm going to leave it overnight on charge. However, i can hear a sound like the pump is running (maybe) after the bike has been through it's priming cycle. I can't say i've noticed the noise before - but that could just be me.
Can anyone put my mind at rest and have a quick listen to the tank area of the bike.
I'm just hoping that i don't have a spiked ECU that's running the pump continually...

Hold the throttle wide open and crank until it starts. It will.

Mine does this if I key it on and off a few times without starting it.

That's an old problem of the S10. It happened to me once, the day after a bike wash without starting the engine.
The good thing is that they always end up starting, you just need some faith

This is correct. It worked with my bike a couple of days ago.

MudNut,

Here is the link to the AMA site:

http://www.americanmotorcyclist.com/...ladventureride

The event is 08-09 SEP 12. The HMFIC is Mr. Ron Miller, millerron@bellsouth.net, 704-309-3271. There is a 70 rider limit. The flyer states, "Bring your KTMs, KLR's-V-Strom's, DR's, GS's, and ride a good mix of fire roads, Jeep and Logging roads, and super twisty rural blacktop all in Western N.C. and Eastern TN. Ridable by all! Elevation changes from 1200' to 5500'. A real adventure!"

It also stated the following:

Steele Creek Park/Campground - HWY 181 $25 per night. 11 miles north of Morganton, NC. 828-433-5660 Full hook ups - Tents with clean bath house, Family park with swimming, fishing, water slide, putt-putt, etc...
Friday 16" 4-6pm - Saturday and Sunday 7:30-9:30 am
Route sheets $60 for both days. Make checks out to Ron Miller - mail
1281 River Hwy, Mooresville NC 28117
Long Sleeve Event Shirt $15 - add to entry
Homemade Spagetti Dinner Sat nite $7


I am planning on departing from Fayetteville at about 9am Friday. That will give me plenty of time to set up the tent, get gas, and chill.

Cheers,
Dan
