Yes it is. I had one before my S10. It is a very good idea and is part of the stock bike.

Tow hook?




Shouldn't it be on the rear to tow others?

I'm up a lot worrying about you and Karen.

Worse than having a teenage girl out past midnight.

Basically is a white Yamaha turning black but trying to keep the white to avoid Pluric comments…

The original white colour still there but covered with stickers to protect the paint. I can return to white when I want. I did it when I realized some scratches doing off road.

So, Pluric: It’s NOT a sexual issue…. ¿ok?





And sometimes she like to be browm: hippopotamus in action!


Jesus. That is the nicest looking S10 I have seen to date. Beautiful!

Much happier on it versus the stock seat so far...did 10 hours / 640 miles on it 2 days ago and for me it's a big improvement.

I have some good pics with the handles removed if I could figure out how to post a photo. If anyone wants to teach a newbie how, I'll put 'em up for you.
I read a few posts where some were turning the handle upside down, but I couldn't figure out how to do it with side cases mounted.
