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.
WOW..............thank you for the link to the S10 forum!!!!! AND your input..............I really appreciate it!!!

Weird place for a boat show, but I guess that was all underwater about a million years ago.

This may not be the thread so please feel free to redirect me but I was wanting to know how you guys like the new bike. How does it handle and compare to the competition. Any issues to be aware of and etc.............

Thank you...................these things are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!
My previous bike was also a GSA.
I'm very happy with the Yamaha. If you like to do off road the ST is much better than the GSA, well balanced, better suspension.... and very relliable.

GO FOR IT!!

I think we all know each other well enough around here....

Jaumev is in charge of stickers and any English corrections needed.

Dallara is more the "Tell me a story grandpa".

DaFoole is like the gay uncle good for comic relief.

Warriorprincess always on the quest for drama when there isn't any to be found.

Williams42 the smartass protege.

Twinrider, tougher call. Waiting to pounce at the smell of blood.

Me? I just hang around ready to hijack a thread if it gets too on track.
