    Geez, here we all still are on 12/22/12... Sun shinin', planet spinnin', life still goin' on. Guess those frickin' Mayans were full of sh*t! :*sip*

    Time to renew all those insurance policies, I guess! :deal

    Well, then... In the spirit of our new found chances of further survival as a species I suppose I should post a pic or two of my Super Tenere someplace nice! :lol3

    You know, this single post could stand on its own for representing what the S10 is and why you might want one.

    2012 was a great motorcycle adventure year for the Yanks that finally got theirs.

    Hey Dallara,

    What sort of tail bag is that ?
    I am in the market for one at present.

    In that picture it's a MotoFizz "Medium Camping Seat Bag" from Aerostich...

    It's without a doubt one of the very best pieces of motorcycling kit I have ever owned. Super high quality, in both materials and workmanship. Made in Japan. It's versatile, expandable, comes with everything you need to use it properly... wonderful tie down straps and system, rain cover that actually works, shoulder strap for easier carrying off the bike, etc., etc. You can perhaps buy cheaper bags, and I have a couple of those. Those stay on the shelf these days and my MotoFizz bags are all I use on the S-10's rack. Wish I had found it first. I'd have saved myself a lot of time and trouble! :rofl

    They call it a "Medium", but actually it's pretty damn *big*... Plenty big enough for me on even longer trips.

    If you look in some of the other pictures you will see I also use a MotoFizz "Small Camping Seat Bag"...

    http://www.aerostich.com/motofizz-camping-seat-bags-small.html

    I actually use it a lot more since it's a better size for me for shorter, solo trips. I use the bigger "Medium" on longer trips or when I have to carry something large. But the "Small" still holds a ton, and seems to be about perfect when used with the stock Yamaha side cases and my SW-Motech/Bags Connection "City" tank bag.

    However, if you need really *REALLY* big, then MotoFizz does make the "Large Camping Seat Bag"...

    http://www.aerostich.com/motofizz-camping-seat-bags-large.html

    Honestly, I can't imagine needing that much space, and from the listed dimensions of this "Large" one it wouldn't work well with the Yamaha side cases so I never even considered it.

    I think Pluric has some MotoFizz stuff, too, so maybe he'll chime in here.

    Hope this helps! :D

    You need the big Motofizz when the wife needs her curling iron.

    Big Fizz Fan! The best layed out soft bag I've ever seen. Side access, top access, dirty clothes
    bag under the top lid, expands to huge, exterior carry straps. 10 of 10 on the user scale.:thumb

    Not quite 3k miles and liking it very much. It's winter now so no riding for me, just quality shop time.:1drink

    Every passing mile puts a bigger smile on my face. Around town it's almost too much fun as I hope to not get a road tax ticket. Out on the road it swalllows up the miles. Since mine is black it's prolly faster than the rest as I've seen 126 on gps w/o bags and 50 degree ambient temps. But because it's black and I have a history of black bikes you now know what side of the fence I rest my tent on.:wink:

    Headlight wise I had a wee-strom in the past so I've been spoiled.

    I like abs but wish I could disable linked braking from time to time.

    The motor needs nothing after the clutch bypass. One sweet mill.

    A new bigger wind screen is also in order. Jimmy Buffeting sucks.

    My plans are finding a pannier rack set/system and then fitting my RTW quality pannier boxes, smaller tool storage tube and auxiliary liquid storage tank.:ear

    ttfn :1drink
