My previous boxes on my 660Z were full of small dents. On my S10, one of the panniers blew over in the wind yesterday (whilst on the ground) when I was washing the bike and I still ended up with a small dent from a stone.

I am only talking asthetics here, they are good otherwise if not too small for my purposes.
Well I've a couple more, the lock, unlocked itself(without key) and the spring mechanism popped open during a ride although the box stayed firmly on the rack.

And I could use my oem side box key(a different key) to open the top box.

Looks wise they're pretty. But I would not buy them again.

I hope Yamaha will warranty these things? Or recall once they have a fix?

Comparo!

I just love it when some people compare the new S10 to a 10 year old GS and say, the Yami is so much better. I would venture to say a new 2010 Standard GS 1200 would wup some serious ass here.

For the extra dosh you'd sure want it to.

In NZ Pesos a GS is $33,065 and a Tenere is a rumoured $26K.

I haven't gone all the way through the thread - has anyone called to account the graphics/stickers on the bike?

Everything else is well integrated. Small thing to gripe about but hey, it's the internet and it's pretty much all I've got.

I just got rid of a 10 MONTH old one (09 GSA that is) amd IMHO the Yam is much better all round.

Having had both, back to back, I am in a position to comment.

I take it you have not ridden a Yam ?

....Sorry

Not being a die hard Yamaha fan, the stickers say to me 'oh look - stickers'.

I'd like it more without them.

If you had read somewhat more carefull, you would now several 1200GS owners have made the switch and are giving their account...

The GS is a terrific machine for the long sweepers, but for the bumpy backroads here in the Ardennes the S10 will be verry hard to beat, verry hard !

Well nothing a heat gun and some patience wont cure, or do you mean the stickersets of the Tripy and IXS examples?

I know what you mean..
I thought exactly the same thing when I first saw both the BMW and Yamaha.

You would think that for the money they charge for these machines they would invest a little bit of it back into clear coating over the stickers.
Love or hate the design or colour or look of the stickers they could have at least done it right...

And the Winner is...

YES !!!


Das Motorrad just dropped in my Mailbox and even they gave the S10 Kudo's of course the GS Won, but with some "help" they tested the Tenere *with* traction control so it did not win the sprint, which it did win in other magazines... And they gave the way to soft duo saddle of the GS extra points, which in my opinion is only good for barhopping...

GS 701 points, S10 695...

And the of course the S10 won the bang for the buck category (Hands down)
  1. S10: _______ 2.2 (695)
  2. GS: ________ 2,4 (701)
  3. Tiger:_______ 2,4 (643)
  4. Varadero: ___ 2,5 (629)
  5. 990: _______ 2,8 (629)
  6. Multistrada: _ 3,3 (680)
  7. Stelvio:_____ 3,4 (627)
