I'd like to see how many takes it was for that small dude to get it all right.


That BMW starts to fall the opposite way and it's GONE.

I'm more confused than ever. I can see me going back and forth btwn the Yamaha and Suzuki at the bike show in NY. I was already impressed with the Super Teneré- this should be fun.

Good thing no one told that to 5'3" Gaston Rahier. Or maybe it was the lack of camping gear that let him pull it off....

'13 weestrom has pretty good ground clearance.
and I saw a new one posted a few days ago at just under $7000.
so, is the shorter dl1k worth 5500+ ?

Lower price? Of the current model or the 2014.
That's interesting news if it the 2014.

There's 2 models of the new S10 coming out in 2014. Current model is losing the center stand as standard, although it still has the new motor improvements, but will still keep the same suspension it has. Other model will have the e-suspension and cruise control & centerstand standard. It's not clear yet if you can get the cruise without the E-suspension.

Not sure on the prices.

Reliable source for your info? Round these parts most dealers had leftover S10 well in to this year. They were deeply discounting them.

Well, the 2014 specs have already hit the Yamaha Euro site - http://www.yamaha-motor.eu/eu/produc...?view=features

I guess its still up in the air if we'll actually see them here in the US, but hopefully so. Latest info I read is dealers should be getting info about US models in March?

There's also a 2014 S10 thread here on ADV where questions/answers can be better asked - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=931828

Good price if it's true. Half the price of a BMW. (The ones they actually import, not the advertised base model)

True. But it is half the bike, as anyone that rides the LC can tell you. :)

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Why is it that Kawi and Yamaha's European websites are so polished and well done?
The U.S. versions looks like a kid made them in 5 minutes back in 1997.

Rant over- sry.
