    That is crazy, why would Yamaha do that?
    Well, I am glade you got your bike at a decent price.

    I think the S-10 is going to be my next bike but I need to wait until March.
    I keep trying to forget this. There is a possibility I could lose my license because of medical issues. Hope not but it’s possible. <o:p></o:p>

    GB, I think Yamaha should have given you this bike just for being an ambassador for the Super Tenere. Hay everyone, The GB of ADV rides a Super Tenere! Not a BMW, not a Explorer, Not a Crosstour, Not a KTM, Come on Yamaha you missed a great opportunity here.

    My new, local Yam dealer has a white one just in. His 1st Super 10.
    He called me "gotta get $13,900 + $100 doc fee + tax.
    He did not motivate me :lol3

    No kidding.


    Cant blame him for trying to make a big profit, but he would have to do so with someone else. I like the white, possibly even better than my blue, but not for $1000 more.

    Hi Phill,
    Yea he is 1k over Sussex. And Sussex also included heated grips in the deal. No setup fees.
    It will most likely sit. Ill ping him in Jan or Feb when he is softened up a bit. :lol3

    Nah, I'm just a Starbucks riding poser seeking a low maintenance, well designed, fun and reliable bike.

    The one mod I would recommend is lifting the power restriction in the first 3 gears: Shorting the clutch switch with a mini fuse; a 50 cent and 30 second mod. (as posted here previously)

    The price will have to be much lower than that to sell a S10. He will learn that after talking to the people who are interested in that bike.

    Aw come on, admit it. You'd pay it if it was orange.:wink::D

    Oh and I'm fine GrahamD. Thanks for your concern. At my age getting laid takes a lot longer
    than it used to and I thought it tacky to go on line during the pee break.:lol3

    Aw, c'mon, Rick... You know you want one to replace your Dreamsicle. Otherwise why would you keep hanging around here? :poser

    No doubt you would only get yours in the special "Brokeback Mountain Edition" black, though! :ymca

    Just a bit of info that the 2013 models have a MSRP of $14,790. Dealer invoice also went up, so it will porbably be difficult getting as good a price as many of us got on 2012 models.

    that's better than the price that was on the 12 model blue one at the local dealer. 14,900 was bottom dollar. i guess i need to look around more.

    Hey Frank, one of the local dealers was selling them for $11,995 a while back. Maybe a fly 'n ride..... :evil

    People should really support your local dealers when practical. I'm not talking about paying crazy money or even MSRP, but if the difference between local and "Fly-n-Ride" is only a couple of hundred dollars and you like the dealer otherwise, do the deal locally.

    Motorcycle dealers have been hit really hard by this economy, so if you have a good one close, support them unless you want to see them disappear.
