    Of course it can. As I understand it you can also do motocross with it on too. Gonna be messy when you fall off though.

    I have been reading this forum for several months now. I started reading this thread about three weeks ago. You guys have inspired me. I work 50 hours a week and commute 15. I want to do something fun. I have been riding since I was about 15. I love motorcycles and anything with wheels that says Yamaha. Its been a while since I have swung a leg over the seat. I told the wife about it and at first she didnt want me to do it. The father in law over heard our conversation and told her, "let the man have his motorcycle". She called me back and said,"You know what we wont get any younger, get it!" With a beautiful wife and three boys its hard to fork out 12-13k. I've been waiting for the right time. Looks like Christmas boys...... Here she is.....
    God Bless! Stay safe on the road and Godspeed!:wink:
    Sorry cant put in the photo!!!!%^&*
    Try it later!!!! gotta go working on Thanksgiving!!!

    Yes, now I have all the good of both.
    I can do off road like a KTM but get to the end of the trip as a Yamaha: without problem :evil

    Im in a similar boat- Beautiful wife & 3 boys, 50 mile commute in a V8 Toyota Tundra. I could pay for the bike just in gas savings alone.:wink:
    Fun factor is just icing on the cake.

    I want a video of him getting it off of the center stand!

    I made the mistake of putting my pig (not a Yamaha) up on the center stand to get the last few drops of fuel into the tank, that was an adventure to get back down on a slippery piece of concrete by the pumps!!!:lol3

    These are really REALLY starting to grow on me. Maybe if my current ride ever craps out I'll look into replacing it with one of these...

    Great pics.

    Have to disagree. After spending 55,000 km aboard a TDM900, which was very smooth and vibration free at all cruising speeds, loping along like you'd expect a big twin, I took my first ride on its big brother the S10 this weekend, racking up 2000 km, and was pretty bummed out to be getting numbed hands at 3500 rpm/100 kph -- a lowly 60 mph. And it didn't get less obtrusive if I went faster. This engine feels like a busy, buzzy inline 4, not a relaxed big twin. Maybe the crossplane design, I don't know. But it was pretty disappointing after the TDM and other big twins I've owned.
