Be happy they did not.. I saw the 2013 smt at the NY show and now I can't sleep trying to resist temptation. . It looks awesome and I had an SMR and know it is a great bike and fun to ride.

To be honest I couldn't care less, even if it came dead last. I love my SMT.

Agreed. As the article states, the fuel economy is the only thing holding the bike back.

The write up listed some pretty awesome bikes. An impressive list. The SMT deserves a spot up on top.

I think the Adventure 1190 with the RC8 motor and lower oil and fuel use and higher MPG that comes with it will be up on top spot in any new top 10's coming around the corner... and likely it'll be the next bike for me after the SMT, give it another 1-2 years and I'll trade in :) Still plenty of fun times to be had on the SMT yet though...

New to this thread

Hi People. I only came across this thread the other day. Proud owner of a 2011 SMT. Got it from new after previously having a FZ1s Yamaha. Anyway, this is it away camping last year in the Lake District of England.

I also did a short RR on here with a video and some pictures.

Just ordered some LeoVince's for the SMT. :)
The smt forum has a dyno chart for them. Modest increase across the RPM range with factory map. The weight savings and lack of heat near the luggage is my true interest though.
New from Amazon, 620 shipped to the door.

I actually wanted a steering stabilizer first. Couldn't seem to find a good price on one though. The search continues.

Any suggestions on a stabilizer?
Brand?
Source?

Do you think the SMT needs one? I really haven't seen the need yet. I've had them on my dirt bikes, but I ride out of control most of the time in the dirt.

To be honest, I've only been on 2 bikes with them - a KTM LC4 in SM trim and my Husky 510. They were great on those to applications.

I've pushed the SMT pretty hard in some corners and felt the front end not track right. My first guess was that the stock Conti's are crap. The people on the interwebs seem to agree. I'll have to try another tire to compare. That won't be until this one looks funny.

I've read that a couple people have them on their LC8 SM bikes and really like them. If I can find a reasonable price on one, I'd really like to try it.
