That was taken at the top at California pass up the footpath beyond the sign. Looking down at the back of the sign.

I did the Alpine Loop from Lake City to Silverton.

I did the same loop with my XR650L 2 years before and the S10 certainly wasn't as nimble as the XR but passed with flying colors. The traction control (tcs2) was a must in my opinion. I tried a few steep climbs with Tcs off and it was a handful.

Correct. Good plate. However, still possible to smash the headers with it on DAMHIK. A few have reported clearance issues at installation.

I would buy again. Pricey though...

Thanks guys! Really put the S10 through its paces on that trip. I couldn't imagine a better bike with the combination of slab and trail in 9k miles. One set of tires for the whole trip too!(K60s).

Slab from BR, LA to Columbus, NM.
CDR to Banff, AB
Slab back to BR, LA



Best,
Andy

Great trip Andy

That Alpine loop is on the list for rides at the Colorado meet in June 13. Hope you get to come.

Fantastic! Just what the Tenere is all about.

I can see where you would feel that way.
Moab is just in a league of it's own.

I've always prefered mountain trail riding on smaller bore bikes.
Some Utards keep dragging me into the desert and I'm starting to like that too.

That wouldn't be...

Quote:
"The most common constituent of sand, in inland continental settings and non-tropical coastal settings, is silica (silicon dioxide, or SiO2), usually in the form of quartz, which, because of its chemical inertness and considerable hardness, is the most common mineral resistant to weathering.

The composition of sand is highly variable, depending on the local rock sources and conditions. The bright white sands found in tropical and subtropical coastal settings are eroded limestone and may contain coral and shell fragments in addition to other organic or organically derived fragmental material, suggesting sand formation depends on living organisms, too.[2] The gypsum sand dunes of the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico are famous for their bright, white color. Arkose is a sand or sandstone with considerable feldspar content, derived from the weathering and erosion of a (usually nearby) granitic rock outcrop. Some sands contain magnetite, chlorite, glauconite or gypsum. Sands rich in magnetite are dark to black in color, as are sands derived from volcanic basalts and obsidian. Chlorite-glauconite bearing sands are typically green in color, as are sands derived from basaltic (lava) with a high olivine content. Many sands, especially those found extensively in Southern Europe, have iron impurities within the quartz crystals of the sand, giving a deep yellow color. Sand deposits in some areas contain garnets and other resistant minerals, including some small gemstones."


Would it?
