Yeah but Southern Utah boys have a little different spin on that....

"You can marry your fist cousin.
You can marry your second cousin.
You can marry your wifes sister and her cousin.
You can marry your aunt and her sister
You can marry....... all at the same time".

Utah joke. We have a large community of polygamists down South.

Not saying it doesn't, just most of it is down by the Utah/Arizonia border.
We shipped a fair amount to Texas too.

Think I'll go for a ride. It's sunny and 69F on the thermometer here and I'm in the same state. Maybe you're bike isn't really blue, it's just cold?
There's hope! Mid fortys today. I even got the midlife car out. Instantly turned me into a smug bastard.

(There's a set up line if I ever heard one)

Beautiful out. YeeHaw.

True, the polygamists tend to pick out of the way spots for their compounds or small towns. An infamous one is just over the UT/AZ border in Colorado City, AZ. Drive/ride in there and you get some looks. They know you're not from there. A lot of the houses are not finished, and left that way forever to avoid taxes, (it's a loophole in AZ tax law, intended to help folks building their own homes). They basically abuse the state's welfare system with "unwed mothers" and children on the tax roles, despite living in a house or trailer home on the same property as several other unwed mothers with children and one married couple. It's quite a strange place. The roads in used to not be paved, but then you'd come around a corner and find nice wide paved streets and sidewalks. They have their own stores, markets and just about everything needed to keep people there and provide little excuses for anyone to go out of 'town' and encounter outsiders.

There are some smaller compounds not too far from where I live. About ten miles up the hwy, then another ten miles down a dirt road in the middle of no where. Not a friendly place.

Bigwater had a polygamist family there at one time, I met one of the wives when I was looking at real estate years ago. I think we threw the one Y'all sent down here in jail, they had a little compound South of here IIRC.

Warren Jeffs? A client of ours was on his defense team. That Jeffs is a weird duck.

Hello people.

Simple question, is there any difference between the first edition S10 and the latter ones?? (besides the obvious paint schemes and the first edition accessory kit). Any recall, anything that the first edition had poorly sorted and they improved in the latter model?? or is it exactly the same bike besides the obvious said stuff??

Thanks.

The headlight harness was slightly changed to eliminate an overheating problem, otherwise virtually the same. My dealer changed the headlight harness on my first edition for free.

Thanks

It'd help to know where on Earth you are. Assuming you are talking about a true 2010 "First Edition" bike that never came to North America, there were a number of minor changes, such as a slightly beefier rear sub-frame for the seat & luggage rack, plus the wiring change. Very minor but they exist. I've seen a list on one of the Super Tenere forum sites that you would have to search for.

If you are talking about the first round of production when bikes came to N. America and the rest of the world incorporated the minor changes, then just the colors have changed.
