Trailer hitches

I'm narrowing down my next bike choices between the Tenere and a GSA. The GSA has the edge right now because of the manufactured hitches available.

I've been pulling a trailer with my FJR and for two up camping, bringing my dog and groceries up to my camp it has been awesome.

I also have a DR650. I wouldn't even think about pulling it on a trailer. A 400lb bike plus the weight of the trailer just doesn't sound like a good plan.

I don't think I have ever pulled over 250 pounds and while you hardly notice it once underway on a straight away, it can want to push the ass of the bike in corners and it does effect braking.

Questions on a buy.

I have been reading quite a bit about this but can't find everything.
I am looking at a left over 2012 new on the floor. Does $12,500 sound like a reasonable price for this?
It has been sitting there for at least a year.
I also want to look at some accessories with it. Cases and LED driving lights. Are there any other accessories that Yamaha offers that I should consider?

Thanks in advance.

This is a great thread. The S10 surely has a great following.

Yep.
We're modest too.

Happy to tell you so!

I need my water fix back. I'd post the bikini shots but I've never been one to derail a thread.
Too hot to ride.
I was wondering where was Pluric... the post was sooo quiet and serious...

Considering the last lake pic he posted up look like the opening scene of The Aristocrats, he's probably afraid to post up his latest shots...

The full retail price in the US is a great price. Anything less is a bonus.

If that's out the door, then I'd think it's a good price. On the other hand, a lot of used ones with low miles and extra's are selling for less than that price. I bought mine used with extras and 1700 miles for a fair amount less than that. And my flight to NY city and gas to get home (one day trip) were only about $200.

As long as we keep to the thread theme of 'Big Twins' I see no problem.

I have been using Mobil 1 20w/50 fully synthetic, Walmart sells it for about 10 or 11 bucks.

26 thousand miles and counting :)

We need to get together
