I have read most of this thread and you seem very satisfied with your Teneres! Many of the ones I have seen for sale in the FM are being sold due to job, money or "wanting a smaller bike" issues. Besides the weight, I have heard nothing but good things about the S10. I have corresponded via PM to ask some questions from a couple of you and I thank you for your time.
Anyways, I am posting to request your eyes and ears. I have narrowed my hunt to a few models, of course the S10 being in the top three along with the F800GS and the 800 Tiger. The S10 gets many bonus points over the other two due to tubeless tires, shaft drive, four dealers within 30 minutes, legendary Yamaha reliability and price!
I keep my eyes on CL, eBay and the Flea Market every day, but if any of you have or hear of any S10's for sale in the lower 48 states, please send me a PM, thanks!

P.S. The best new deal I have found is $11,499+Tax, title, tag on a leftover 2012.
Twigg cycle in Hagerstown Maryland had one about a month ago. No idea on price.

Just came back from a short blast today of around 350km's. For the first time in the almost 20,000kms that I have had my big girl I got her totally sideways. I've managed to kick the back out a bit on gravel roads often enough, but this time I had a rush of blood after about an hour or so on a flat gravel road. I began riding sedately, then a little more agressive, then like I was riding my old WR450! What a difference! Even with Tourance tires she responds beautifully to an agressive style on the dirt. Having flicked off the TC, the big girl loves to drift under power into, through and out of big sweeping corners. She is a lot of bike to haul back when things get a bit out of shape though. I know quite a few of you boys have discovered this wonderful trait already, I'm just playing catch up.

, Don't tell the Austouring boys. They still think it's a road bike.

It's like in the movie "The right stuff". You just have to rewrite it a bit...

Im not making a One Piece but I am making a new passenger seat & seat perch.
I dont like the steep transition between the stock passenger seat and pilot seat. Mine will be flat.

That look is exactly why Im building a new seat perch along with a new seat. The stock perch is WAY to tall (a ton of wasted space under the perch) to just put a lower seat in it. That seat would be less then 1 inch tall. Not exactly what any passenger would want to spend any time on. IMO

Ok, I'll bite. It has a one piece seat. What, you still have the passenger seat on your bike? BWAAHAHAH!

Why? No passenger is going to sit on the back of the one piece seat, so why bother to make one that extends back that far when you only need the rider portion?

But, just for giggles, it's already been done. No idea if it's available or not.

At the moment the fire bug bastards haven't got to our area YET.
With the rain you've been copping lately, I hope you're keeping your head above water Graham.

.................
The idea was to make a passenger seat much lower than the OEM. It would be two seats but looking as a one piece.
I’m riding without passenger most of the time and I was looking for a flat luggage surface but with the option to take a passenger for a very short ride as I do sometimes (just to pick a son from town to home…)
This option could do that and also is better for off road riding when you move backwards.
I was looking this option before I found the Touratech rack I have now, is very easy to put on and off.
