How do you fit on that seat? isn't a little tight

Can't wait to get my S10 with a "D" shaped tire

It's a Yamaha safety feature that keeps you awake on long tarmac rides.

I thought it was just so you could park your bike on the straight part of the "D" and the bike wouldn't roll forward or backward. Once again Yamaha thinks of everything.

It does. That's why the spokes attach to that center rib on wheel. The O.P. must have been shocked when he brought it home and coundn't find the tube. All kinds of possiblities swirling though his mind, like maybe total distintegration. 'But I couldn't even find any rubber dust in the tire'

From the sig and avatar, sounds like he felt the need to put-in a plug for Ah-pree-lee-ah regardless of of the thread.

Maybe he meant this one...






Of course, Aprilia doesn't even produce the model in the picture any longer so I'm not sure the comparison is currently valid with new bikes you can buy.

It is damn good looking, though...

...with look being a very subjective thing, of course. I don't really care for the look, but I'm sure a lot of others love it.

I wondered about the inner tube comment too, but I figured maybe he put an inner tube in it as a precaution or sumpin .

My guess is those tires aren't tubeless, so no choice but to run tubes. Anyone know what they are?
