They sure will have it ready, the Intermot is only Weeks away, and any serious aftermarket firm would not want to miss out on their product placements via that Motorcycle industy Fair.

The 10th of Ocober well go to Cologne to look at all the silly crap they fantasised up as "really usefull farkle" to make the bike as overweight as its rider

(what a load of farkles do i need after a vacation to Spain i wonder... )

Yup i found the same thing SC, its still a little noisey but the airflow is much better.

well i think that probably answers that question - if yamaha is running every r1 and r6 on the rollers then i can't see them not doing it for the s10.... so let's move on...

I'm thankful for the more comprehensiver reviews. Unlike the MCN crew, who seems to grade every bike based upon tarmac performance and how sportbike-like something handles. I wonder how many perfectly good bikes they've single-handedly damaged the reputation of. The hacks!

You might enjoy this one then..

I had not seen it before.
Look closely and about 75% of the way through you will see the video clip where the 3 bikes are cresting a hill doing a wheelie side by side.
The pictures surfaced about 3 or 4 weeks ago and were very well received.

Thanks for that Greg,

Good video. Two videos with actual off road testing!!
OMG what is the world coming to?!

Loved the comment about the poms, getting nervous about crossing a paddock, sorry, field.

Cheers
Graham

Coming soon to the former colonies: a road network worth the name.

See ya soon for some cricket (the side will be packed with South Africans which might give us half a chance...).

Great vid! I would have enjoyed that one even if they were all riding GS's. When he remarked about not being able to kill the ABS was a bad idea for off-road, I thought uh oh, here we go again with pre-conceived notions, but it was nice to see that the bike opened his mind again.

Thanks for posting that.

Alas, i've found something i don't like about the S10....

Changing the F&%#ing back wheel! That thing is a right bitch to get off and an even bigger mongrel to get back on! The axle is a stupidly tight fit you have to hit it to get it out, which then moves the wheel off the cush drive rubbers which then wedges the wheel in place. Be warned when removing the back wheel, do not allow the cush drive to come apart. I also found it best to remove the caliper and torque arm and swing them out the way. Getting the caliper back over the disc is a mongrel too, do yourself a favour and spread those brake pads out to the stops before you attempt to get it back on.

Hope that helps someone
