The funny thing for me is the S10 was on my radar screen as soon as it came out, but Yamaha Canada priced it at about $4500 more than I could buy it in the US. And I waited for a test ride, and waited and waited, almost 2 years later, I ended up buying one in the US without test riding it. Had I known I'd like it this much, I would have bought it sooner. I find the engine has a lot of "character", it's like a hybrid between a parallel twin and a V-twin, and gobs of torque. Long long long valve train inspection interval (42,000 km / 26,000 miles), double sided swingarm and proven final drive design, very similar to the one used on the FJR for years), and no montly software updates, so I'm not married to the dealer for service, plus comfortable ergos, I find the suspension to be excellent, but I'm pretty light... I like the styling, and best of all NO me too BEAK!!!

That is crazy, why would Yamaha do that?
Well, I am glade you got your bike at a decent price.

I think the S-10 is going to be my next bike but I need to wait until March.
I keep trying to forget this. There is a possibility I could lose my license because of medical issues. Hope not but its possible.

GB, I think Yamaha should have given you this bike just for being an ambassador for the Super Tenere. Hay everyone, The GB of ADV rides a Super Tenere! Not a BMW, not a Explorer, Not a Crosstour, Not a KTM, Come on Yamaha you missed a great opportunity here.

My new, local Yam dealer has a white one just in. His 1st Super 10.
He called me "gotta get $13,900 + $100 doc fee + tax.
He did not motivate me

No kidding.


Cant blame him for trying to make a big profit, but he would have to do so with someone else. I like the white, possibly even better than my blue, but not for $1000 more.

Thats good to know Frank. I'm looking at that bike as a replacement for the Beemer. Jonas and I will have to go take a look.

Hi Phill,
Yea he is 1k over Sussex. And Sussex also included heated grips in the deal. No setup fees.
It will most likely sit. Ill ping him in Jan or Feb when he is softened up a bit.

Frank,
Good to know. Although I'm not a fan of that dealer.

Nah, I'm just a Starbucks riding poser seeking a low maintenance, well designed, fun and reliable bike.

The one mod I would recommend is lifting the power restriction in the first 3 gears: Shorting the clutch switch with a mini fuse; a 50 cent and 30 second mod. (as posted here previously)

You are preaching to the choir, eemsreno started that mod if I am not mistaken (well at least on the yamahasupertenere.com forum).

The price will have to be much lower than that to sell a S10. He will learn that after talking to the people who are interested in that bike.

Aw come on, admit it. You'd pay it if it was orange.

Oh and I'm fine GrahamD. Thanks for your concern. At my age getting laid takes a lot longer
than it used to and I thought it tacky to go on line during the pee break.

Aw, c'mon, Rick... You know you want one to replace your Dreamsicle. Otherwise why would you keep hanging around here?

No doubt you would only get yours in the special "Brokeback Mountain Edition" black, though! :ymca
