Wow Mark! Sounds like it was the drivers and your lucky day. Not so much for the Honda. Glad you are OK, everything else can be fixed or replaced.

I can see the class action lawsuit for broken tibiae forthcoming. Think of all the limbs & cool places those heads can be snagged.
The plus side is you won't have to smell the clutch when you wrestle it out of a nasty place.

Those are gravitational-assist outriggers, according to the product literature. In case of tip-over, you don't tip over.

Sounds like Segway's version of the motorcycle.

Guilty, I do have at least a portion of most of the crates my bikes came in.

Yeah, I'm not so certain. I think the S10 does not need an update, I personally think it is the machine to have.

Their press conference yesterday focused on a new(ish) FJR, a warmed up FZ8 & a "concept" of a triple cyclinder with a crossplane crankshaft....their word for "Kooky firing order"

Perhaps that thing will come in as an 800 or 850 to compete with the Tiger. (another super great bike IMHO)

I can't wait to see what everyone has up their sleeve....the ADV market is finally getting some due attention.

Well I (obviously) agree, but the vast majority of average joes are going to look at spec sheets, see all the competition with 130-150 horsepower and the lowly S10 with only 110, and strike it off as not even a contender.

I'd rather them not change anything more than colors, so the aftermarket builds up nicely for mine. But I can see the direction this open class adventure category is heading, and the S10 is going to need an update to keep in line.

Yamaha needs the 660 Tenere in the States.
