    In Sanders's case I honestly think not. He is firstly a traveller (he used to cycle the world before motorcycling it) and has always seemed disinterested in the niceties of what gear and parts are "best", or even needed. In this and most other respects his way of doing things is the complete opposite of the 'Long Way Round' approach.

    Yes they are... I guess either Yamaha weren't too confident their own boxes would do the job, or Touratech made a significant contribution...

    BTW - this is not a stock S10 muffler - it has two outlets. Not one I've seen before, anyone know anything about it?

    Hmm, If I was to do it over again I would probably fork out for the Touratech.

    Yes...I did...and should again. They're all I've owned to date. It will have an HB top case...I'll look at the HB side cases again.

    MoBill, we should get together and discuss the bags and ideas, I still have not decided which ones, I do like the Touratech though, but I also like the Trax on Wasp's bike, but now he says he would go for Touratech :huh now I'm lost again :D but that happens a lot :lol3

    On the way to Lake George for Americade this weekend :D

    Actually we prefer it this way, but alas, you guys WON'T STAY IN YOUR FORUMS :lol3:lol3

    All I know is that I will be riding my "less significant large dual sport bike" soon while you guys will be discussing broken parts, blown up headlamps, non working fuel strips/gages/whatever the crap they are and so on :lol3:lol3

    Oh and don't forget to SWITCH OFF your ABS when you go downhill, I wouldn't like you guys to get hurt :lol3:lol3:lol3:lol3 EVEN THOUGH THE BIKE IS SOOOO MUCH LIGHTER :wink::wink::wink:

    Sounds like a good idea.

    I'm loving the Zega Pros...and I only needed to say, "feh, only 300+ more"

    Going to look again at HB Gobi's. Or other HBs...

    By significant I assume Rick means the significant amount of failures that these bikes have. They would need a big forum to keep that volume of stuff in one place.

    I dont usually feed the trolls but as everyine else is doing it and he did come out from under his brigde in the first place. :D:D

    Yeah, living under a bridge must be a pretty boring life.

    You've got it all wrong about the KTM's and Beemers though...failures equal 'character,' so they wear them like merit badges :lol3

    I do wonder why Ricky hangs-out there though, seeing as he contributes absolutely nothing. He's probably a closet S10 fan. :evil

    Well this place went from a collection of informative posts by many on a new bike to a trollfest by a few :cry

    I'm 25 years old and I'm feeling like a teacher watching a playground full of little kids. I bet I'm one of the younger if not the youngest guys here.

    Grow up. All of you. It's hard enough as it is to filter out all the info in this thread from the useless filler, without you guys and your stupid bullshit. :csm

    :stfu

    Huh..:D I was looking for the wanker smiley a few posts ago and could not spot it... I must be getting to old for this shit.
    Well done.

    P.S - Leave us alone, we all gotta have a bitch and moan every now and then.:evil

    Greg,

    I really appreciate all your input and experience with the S10. My wallet will not be appreciating you when the bike finally gets here. :D

    What makes you wish you went for the Touratech boxes?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    I actually hate panniers, but must have something to lug my junk. I have a big wolfman bag that I will try first, then maybe the pelican or trekkers.

    I am almost ready to pull the trigger on the fenda extenda and maybe the "City" Bags Connection tankbag. LOL :rofl

    Big spender here.

    Gotta agree with that. Junk haulers--all bags are for. Am looking at soft bags some of you guys mentioned .Thanks again. For my part, hope you trolls keep trolling. Love it all. Button pushers bring out some of the most interesting sqwabbles on here. Especially stuff like the above alledged "less significant large dual sport bikes". Hee hee. Good'n. What might they be & why? I got no "less significant dual sport"now.Waiting on the Tenere(my GS is dead), it's friggin SNOWING out anyway--longest winter I ever saw. So let'er rip. Gotta do something, ya noed.
