Yes. I think this one was the result of 5 bracketed shots. Thank you!

I don't know if you had a chance to try other Tenere, but I am pretty sure the Grey is the new fastest S10


Can't wait to see more!

Nope. 50 shades of grey.

If Yamaha was as smart as BMW in terms of marketing, the stock S10 would look a lot more like that

This should get you started... Work backward from the last page.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...8#post20672958

And don't forget the dedicated Yamaha Super Tenere web forum. ADVrider frowns on posting links to it here, but maybe this will help get you there...

Enjoy!

Hi Duane,

Just pop over to the YAMAHA SUPER TENERE big thread for that. When you have one post the pics here...

but the simple answers are.

1) It is pretty well bullet proof, although that's just conjecture as no one has had any reason to shoot one yet.
2) It is a proper all road bike not a jacked up street bike so it has a different set of compromises than more HP faster lap times etc.
3) Every time I get on mine I appreciate what it does. It will be with me for a while. If YAMAHA release an XT900z that may change but it may not.
4) I am not a bike swapper or a YAMAHA fan boy...well maybe this bike has made me a bit of a fan boy.

Duane, the S10's CoG is very low so the bike feels very light lifting it off the side stand and very nimble once rolling. Handles great and is comfortable over long distances. I rode a friend's GSA back to back with my S10 and at parking lot pace and during u-turns the Yamaha feels much lighter and more manageable. Next I rode another friends standard 12GS, felt very similar to the Yamaha.

No mechanical issues to be aware of as far as I know other than some headlight harnesses overheating on the earlier bikes but I believe this has been addressed. I know Yamaha that replaced it free of charge on my First Edition.

Yamaha put power restrictions on the first 3 gears in both touring and sport mode. These can be eliminated with an ECU reflash, or simply by placing a jumper in the clutch wire. I did the latter and the bike runs great. Plenty of information about this and everything else at the dedicated S10 forum.
