    Not sure how much faith people have in the stock bash plate.

    Pic is of an 80kph off on wet bitumen, 2010 Outback model. Insurance write off.

    I was happy with that.

    I was more than happy with it, I expected 10-12k. QBE.

    So I used those funds and bought a Ural for different level of excitement!

    Oh that's familiar! Did you put the standard can back on Timbrell? I remember when I fitted that MC can to the bike it woke right up! Very impressive. Sorry to see you still have the beast for sale, 'twas a great machine.

    Only when it was put up for sale Bill. Certainly much better with the MC can on. Sounded much better too!

    Well,i ended up buying timbrells bike at a great price (thanks mate) & will be flying to Launceston around Dec to pick up & ride back home at Nth Qld.
    Sports Rider motorcycle in Launceston have been great in that i am able to keep the bike there until i pick up & also do bit of fitting of parts i am getting delivered there.
    I have ordered a wilbers shock & fork springs set up for my weight & gear.
    Anyone have experience with the Wilbers gear?
    Anyway really excited to have bought this bike.
    Cheers!

    Congratulations Dazza, that there is a good machine. I bought it new from Parisi's Motorcycles in Cobar back when the Super ten was a new thing. Did a lot of tripping around on it before Timbrell swapped it with me. I did one memorable 1400 km day on it starting out late and hungover that bike was so comfy you just didn't want to get back off it.

    Hope you enjoy many happy km's on it mate

    Cheers

    I'm about 40 k kms too, with big service due, valves etc. I get out heaps, but not so much on the S10 ATM.

    Nearly 80000 now. No problems at all.
    I bought a 625sxc earlier this year for the foresty stuff but the S10 is still my go to bike. It's extremely versatile. I take my teenage kids or wife out bike camping as often as life allows and it's a great bike for that. It's a shame to think it's not worth much now, but it's provided our family with a lot of great memories.
