    [edit] I have restored the backup. It is back as it was on the 22 OCT.

    Time to start updating again.


    OK. The first page of the the thread is dead [un editable] again.

    I am going to try a few things and try to get this thing back.

    There is obviously a repeatng bug that nmay have something to do with time outs or having the same thread opened in two browser windows.

    I have a bit of a backup so I am going to try a few things when I locate the backup.

    Cheers

    Had a chance to ride S-10 as Yamaha had demo rides at Dallas Motorcycle show last Saturday. 270 crank definitely gives the feel of a V twin. Tall gearing so more revs than usual to get going. Neat bike.

    I looked at the Wayback Machine, but alas ADVrider isnýt being backed up anymore since 2008, i think someone hacked ADV rider to give S10 enthousiasts a hard time, if i log out, it flies, but as soon as i register everything seems to get into a almost dormant sleep full of server error nightmares...

    Woody is now drinking some S10 Kool aid and making some Kool wheels.

    Big 21Inch wjeels, WITH THE ABS / TRAC control still intact if you want. Anything wheel related for the S10 just ask.
    Single or double disk, 19Inch 21 Inch you ask, Woody makes.
    Been going pluric down in Baja and need some dings removed? No Worries.

    Hey Guys,

    I just wanted to let everybody know I'm doing my best to try and organize all this information over at YamahaSuperTenere.com.

    Some of you are already members over there, but just so everybody knows I've got a few "databases" going to store all the info about the XT1200Z.
