    Love the shot. Question: The tusk soft luggage (looks awesome) how did you secure it? Did you buy a rack from Rocky mountain? I called them today and was told they don't have anything that will fit a S10? :(

    Thanks! It's a Holan that I purchased from ADVMotorrad.com. Unfortunately, this exact item is no longer imported to the US (don't know if Holan is still making them). However there is a very similar one available from ADVMotorrad made by Hepco & Becker. Here's a link: https://www.advmotorrad.com/protect...o-Becker-Headlight-Guard-XT1200Z-Super-Tenere

    Thanks, beautiful country in my back yard. I bought the Outback Motortek x frames. Definitely quality racks and totally symmetrical. The Tusk Pilots do mount up nice and seem to be big enough without being overly bulky.

    Sidi Crossfires. I've had them since 2014 and are my only motorcycle boots. I'm happy with them.

    Made it out again today. Instead of pre-mapping a route to follow (I use REVER for this), I had it just record where I rode and I just went places I had never been. Found some wonderful back roads to explore. I wish the pics did justice to just how steep some of these areas were.

    Hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

    Ride safely.

    Somehow I filled this for a 4 day trip...

    I could cut a little. Soft case for the first aid kit [actually, I want to mount it on one of the panniers] a stuff sack for the clothes. A smaller cook set.... maybe stove... and I thought the bike was the expensive part.

    And all on the same tank of fuel. It took on 5.6 gallons so I could have rode some more.

    I bent my float arm so that it doesn't start flashing until I have one gallon left in the tank.
    If I remember right in stock trim that light will start flashing with 1.5 or 1.6 gallons left in the tank.

    Even after 10 years of owning the bike the low fuel flashing light still gets my attention only to stop for gas and have 4.3 gallons fill it.

    The last picture of my wonderful S10. We rode approximately 50k miles but the weight and constantly trying not to fall over when stopped, not always successful, wore me down. Said goodbye today at a Yamaha dealer in San Antonio.

    Random but I'm weird and like tarantulas so figured I would drop a little knowledge.
    The males of many species of tarantula develop tibial hooks on the front leg for hooking the females fangs when mating to lift up the front of the female and to assist the male in escaping afterwards. You can kind of see the hook in the picture at the second joint in the longer leg near the tarantulas mouth.
