Gonna agree that adjusting the lights greatly improved the night riding experience. I even agree they are in the upper percentile of "stock" lighting. But dang that Vstrom lights it up when my buddy is behind or beside me.

Having said all that, I want to raise the bar on this bike. I have never had the luxury of big-time lighting. And other than the OEM suspension, I have gotten just about everything else on this bike friggin perfect! Everything. I enjoy every single minute on it.

I keep waiting for the group buy on that other light bar. Can't remember the exact name on it. (They make the "squadron" light too)

Anything can be improved... And no doubt even with supplemental lighting the S-10's lights will never be "perfect", but it's always fun to try and achieve perfection!

As for the group buy... Isn't that the one Jaxon's trying to organize for the Baja Designs light bar with the Super Tenere mount?

I have no idea. Best way to check on that is simply to drop Jaxon an e-mail or PM and ask.

That said, I may be mistaken but I have some vague recollection that Baja Designs joined the Super Tenere forum as a vendor and started offering some kind of forum discount, and once that started Jaxon dropped the group buy on the light bar. He did finish up with his group buy on the two individual light pods, though, IIRC.

You might dig around on the Vendor area of the Super Tenere forum for Baja Designs' threads. I think there's more info there somewhere on their discounts.

I've been happy with the lighting on my S-10, so I haven't bothered. You know me, the less wiring, add-on's, etc. that even *might* cause any reliability issue the better I like it!

Fitted the Yamaha winglets/wind deflector thingummys yesterday and I must say that I'm impressed

I didn't think that it looked like you got very much for your 70 UK pounds but I find that they work really well. I now have no buffeting around my shoulders and torso, still some around my helmet but I'm 6'4"! Santa is bringing me some Tobinators to give me a bit more 'screen adjustment so hopefully that will do the trick.
