I've owned the DL1000, 1150 GSA, and now the S10. I like them all for different reasons. The V-strom was an awesome bike, fun on the twisty parts and problem free. It just wasn't much fun riding two-up. The GSA was also fun to ride, stayed planted on the road like no other bike i've owned and, yes it required more maintenance than other bikes I've owned. But...I knew that before I bought it. For some, doing maintenance, valve adjusts etc.. is enjoyable. The S10 is probably my favorite of the three but I'll need more time to give an honest answer. Then again, if it's got two wheels, no matter what brand, I kinda like it.

What didn't you like about riding the Dl1000 two up. I've got the 650 now and I ride two up everywhere. It seems fine to me, but I also used to ride two up on 650 thumpers so it's all relative. I'm used to needing to shift frequently.

Not DOT approved in the US, so not available thru dealers here. Call just about any Canadian dealer and they will sell them to you and ship them South though.

Check the Vendors section of the Super Tenere Forum and I believe there are a couple of Canadian dealers listed.

By the time I loaded the bike down with gear for a trip and add my passenger, the front end gets light. I could have fixed this easily enough buy spending some cash on an aftermarket setup like Penske or Ohlins. Instead I chose to switch bikes. Realistically speaking, I would have been money ahead by keeping the bike and making it work for us. Other than that, the Strom was one of my all time favorite bikes. Guys can pitch shit on it if they want to because its not everything their bike is. At the end of the day, I had a smile on my face every time I went for a ride.

Yamaha led's turn signals are good. If you like smaller ones Rizoma have a lot (quite expensive but nice).


These are the Rizoma:



And these the Yamaha:

I have the ACD skid plate modified to fit the 21” front wheel. I add some reinforcements in the sides and opened a big hole in the front so the wheel doesn’t hit I the plate.
I’m still looking to a smaller oil filter so its protection is provisional. It is screw in the plate so I can make a smaller one if I’ve found the filter. Also I would like if it works like this so I can change the oil and oil filter without removing the plate

Here you can see the differences. In the pictures with the dirty bike is the new plate.
