Congrats!

Don't wanting to be intrusive, but how much did you paid for it with panniers + top case?

Here in Spain they are selling it for € 14.845.-
And another 'Adventure' version (Panniers + Top Case + Alu Sump guard + Fog Lights + Protection bars + tall screen + Garmin Zumo GPS) for € 15.490.- http://motos.coches.net/noticias/yam...ere_adventure/

Thanks.

Thanks, I'm comparing pictures now, but the Mica's seem to be lower to the ground or is it my impression?

Micatechs have four mounting options on the SWMotech racks. 1.75" forward or back, and upward or lower.

My picture shows them in the upper and back position. I think they sit higher than the Trax bags. Hard to tell, but compare the two pictures using the silver allen head screws that are sticking out from the grab rails as a point of reference.

Super Tenere' at dealer.

If anyone is interested, House of Honda in Fort Wayne, Indiana has a new Super Tenere ready to sell. It seems a salesman got a little too anxious and ordered it without a deposit or sales contract.

Yeah...there seems to be a lot of that going around. There are several advertised on Craigslist here in the Portland OR area.

Ok, I got home and put the bags and racks on ( about a minute to do) and the measurements with the 37L and 45L is 38 1/2 inches. Also measureing from the centerline of the rear reflector to the outside of each bag, there is only 3/8 inch difference. The 45L sticks out 3/8 inch more than the 37 with the SW-Motech offset racks.

Sorry, I didn't measure the bars. If you have a S10 you can measure them and tell us if they are as wide as the bags.

SW-Motech products are sold by Twisted Throttle and the part numbers are listed on their site. Do a search for XT1200Z on their site for the rack and adapter part numbers and their other S10 specific items. Click on the Trax link on their home page for the Trax cases. I purchased them thru my dealer, Niehaus Cycle Sales in IL, www.niehauscycle.com who is a Twisted Throttle dealer.

I didn't know they were a Yamaha dealer. Fort Wayne is about 40 minutes from my house. I bought my S10 in Upper Sandusky Ohio, which is 80 miles away. Oh well, I love my bike.
