You know waving to other riders isn't done in Japan, with the exception of Hokkaido touring. If you really want to freak riders out here, start waving to them when you're in your car.
I get plenty of waves where I'm at, un-initiated even. Most of those come from people on Japanese bikes. Every once in awhile from retired Ojiisan groups on electraglides.

Interesting, maybe because there are less people riding up there. That has happened to me once in a while in isolated areas. But there are so many bikes on most of the good roads down this way that you'd be waving all the time if people did that.

Back to the S10, have you had a chance to go for a ride on your new seat?

Only for about 20min on the way back from my winter storage at work.

So far so good, but not enough time in the saddle to judge the comfort. The ergo feels more level fore-aft than the stocker. Also, the seam in my jeans doesn't seem to, err... cause problems. Even after short rides on the OEM, I was Ieft with the 'just rode a bike' feeling in the crotch area. This seat is firmer than OEM and just a hair higher..probably because it doesn't compress as far.

The weekend will be kinda busy, but I might shoehorn a couple of hours riding in there somewhere.

Good to hear! That's not too far away from me, relatively speaking.

Best feeling in the world? "Getting a new motorcycle in the spring!"

What goes around comes around.

I'm kinda jealous watching you guys pick up your new bikes. Guess it's
pay backs for when you watched us get ours last year.

I can't even think of a new doodad to get to make me feel better.

Well, enjoy it. I know many are.

I suspect it is being sold as a demo. Dealers get a credit from the factory. I wonder about the low mileage. I thought it had to be 2500 miles.

I heard that Yamaha has lost about 20% of it dealers ( don't know if this is just USA or worldwide) and that there is a internal auction within Yamaha that dealers can bid on bikes that come from these dealers. These bikes are sold with one of two types of warranty's. Mechanical and Full. The full is like any bike you get from the dealer floor. The mechanical covers only those items that make the bike move, stop etc. Nothing cosmetic.

Oh you haven't noticed the "New and improved" me??? Since being post nuetered I just find my
new vent is to PM GB with the most trivial stuff I can think of.

The weather is breaking here. I may actually have to go ride the thing.

Have to check if I still have Woody's on speed dial and an open account.

Uh, interested in a project bike? I think I'll be finally moving on from the Uly, I'll give you a special Utard deal on that. What have you been saying to annoy the Moderators?
