    Congrats, what diet? I stopped drinking at the end of December but the weight's not melting off as fast as I thought it would even with the significant drop in caloric intake (no drinking also means less eating late at night). Have resisted going low carb, but might have to if the weight doesn't start to shift faster.

    You forgot the major recall from 2010 with that rear rack. YOU KNOW WHERE THREE PEOPLE LOST THERE LOADS..OMG!

    That's right I forgot we have a had a recall :clap

    I feel better now. It must be a proper bike.

    Stopped putting so much in the pie hole. No special diet, just quit the non-essentials.
    My son was 260 at his peak and is now 205. He does the crazy apples only and some
    supplement thing. I mainly am going for smaller proportions and try to avoid grazing
    when I get home. My wife is a great cook and there is always some new treat on the
    counter. It ain't easy.:D

    Since it's already been covered that there is nothing more to talk about in this
    thread I don't feel like I'm derailing something that there is noting to derail. Right?
    So...... here is what I walked into after work, snicker-doodles hot out of the
    oven.

    To get this back on track lets talk about some self made issues with the bike. Anyone got some insight in cutting the ugly rear fender licence plate mount piece he wants to share? Any tips or things to watch out? :ear

    For mounting the licence plate i already thought something up

    it's a shame you live so far away from Catalunya. I could invite you yo the gastronomic event I organize at the end of this month. Pluric could recover this wheight that uses to test the ST rims and his wife to learn new recipes from the best chefs in the world.

    It must be even colder there than here.

    Looks are such a personal thing. I couldn't even remember what the rear fender looks
    like without checking it out again. What you have concept wise looks to have strong
    mounting points. I guess it's kind of a "If it ain't broke" thing. From what we are finding
    out as owners we may have to wait a long tiime for something to break to have to fix it.

    Amigos! Saludos from Virginia!
    It is with very mixed emotions that I am selling my faithful '05 R1200GS tonight. "GSPDBILL" has rented a trailer, and is leaving Nashville now to pick her up (18 hours round trip!). I have read most of this thread and you seem very satisfied with your Teneres! Many of the ones I have seen for sale in the FM are being sold due to job, money or "wanting a smaller bike" issues. Besides the weight, I have heard nothing but good things about the S10. I have corresponded via PM to ask some questions from a couple of you and I thank you for your time.
    Anyways, I am posting to request your eyes and ears. I have narrowed my hunt to a few models, of course the S10 being in the top three along with the F800GS and the 800 Tiger. The S10 gets many bonus points over the other two due to tubeless tires, shaft drive, four dealers within 30 minutes, legendary Yamaha reliability and price!
    I keep my eyes on CL, eBay and the Flea Market every day, but if any of you have or hear of any S10's for sale in the lower 48 states, please send me a PM, thanks!

    P.S. The best new deal I have found is $11,499+Tax, title, tag on a leftover 2012.

    Hell, I don't know if this is proper or not. But take a look at the for sale section of www.yamahasupertenere.com. There are several for sale over there. Including a couple with some nice Micatech bags on them. In otherwords, they are already pre-farkled.

    Since you are in VA, you could always go over the Romney Cycles in Romeny WV. Not to far away, and they usually have some pretty good prices.

    From a few pages back I thought someone had said the Flea Market had 6 of them listed.

    The obvious advantage would be used could have luggage or other farkles included
    and discounted. The really good news is there isn't much to worry about buying
    used for how well they are holding out on dependability. Maybe ask if a reflash has
    been done or not. I won't suggest a color due to the sensitive nature of the alternative
    life stylers around here.:wink::D

    TBH, I would no fret over the 'leftover' bit. Aside from the colour, there are no differences.
