Right I cannot imagine how I ever turned that preload adjuster by hand? Plus I had to get down on the floor and squint to adjust damping on the forks, oh the horror.

Oh a "standard"model..., anyways I just finished stripping the extra's off my 2012 for trade in, I'm glad my Russell will still fit.

They have just one standard model in blue (no ES)

ES isn't all it's cracked up to be for a solo rider like me. My GSA ES came unplugged after some vigorous offroading and was locked in the super tall offroad height that I could barely get my toes on the ground on one leg Not a show stopper, but my main reason for wanting the standard suspension model is the cheaper aftermarket replacement cost of the suspension. I do like being able to switch from comfort mode to sport mode when hitting twisty mountain roads without stopping the bike.

Well obviously the ES blue is just going to blitz the standard black now..

But Hipsters will start to warm to the retro allure of the black standard in time it will be a classic and spawn the first ever Cafe' ADV bike..

Alas the only "color" the ES comes in a flat grey

The ES models are faster, while you losers are twisting knobs and fiddling with screwdrivers I will be pushing buttons while I ride and drive mutha_ _ _ hers...

Unfortunately, Graham, we only get the ES in that primer, uh, I mean gray color. Inexplicably the base model comes in the awesome blue and also that, uh, awesome primer color that the ES comes with. I have my doubts the hipster crowd will warm to any kind of allure generated by once and future Super Teneres. I'm afraid these rational type bikes simply won't align with their hipster fashion edicts, which everyone knows can be socially fatal to hipsters and similar trend followers.

Just in my local Yamaha dealer yesterday for the recall to be done. I asked the store manager if and when any of the new and improved 2014 S10's would hit their floor. He gave me a funny look and said he had no idea they were doing anything different, and couldn't recall ordering one.

Hopefully, for your sake, the service department knows what the hell is going on.

My dealer just ordered 3 standards and 3 ES's yesterday. I can't wait to get my hands on one! I have been holding out and telling myself I don't want the '13 Tenere they have on the floor or the 1190R that is coming soon. Now to decide between the ES and standard....

My dealer says the same thing that they are unchanged too.

I didn't get a whole lot of riding in today mostly ran a couple of errands and put stuff from my 2012 on the 14 but.

Left side controls so much going on with thick gloves beeped the horn instead of canceling turn signal. Power between T and S is more dramatic but it might be a more tame T setting as opposed to the S being uprated. Suspension so far feels very improved. I still find the power in S in both the 12 and the 14 more than adequate I don't see a ref lash in my future.

If we get decent temps might do some more "testing" tomorrow but I am going into a work week starting saturday night
