If you look well you will spot at lest 4 GS and you can see how the S10 is faster when I passed the 2 GS with hiviz yellow jackets !

Sorry I must have missed them.

Good to see the BMW with the Hi-Viz.
Don't want you running up there rear ends at the typical S10 closing speeds.


Now I have left two giant openings for the BMW boys to come in with a witty, but inaccurate, comment.
Cheers

I suggest to watch it full screen at 720p.
Yes, I know, the sound is crap.
Nice !

But which kind of editing trick did you use to make it look like those GSses had only 27hp :-)

In fact, the Pointe Sommeiller trail is in Italy. The summit is just at the French Italian border.

Nice picture! When I last saw that particular S10 in the flesh, that blonde lady had a beard though...

Btw I destroyed the first thing on my S10 yesterday

In the middle of a very nice flat smooth asphalt curve around Vaals I heard the most monumental crashsnapbangkillmaimdestroy sound. After pooping my pants thinking I had killed the engine somehow, I stopped and looked the bike over. Turns out I snapped the right feeler completely off the peg! Left one is still on, but the right one is completely gone! I can see the hole where the feeler is supposed to screw into, no damage to the threads that I can see, but the thing is gone...

Ah well, better get the left one destroyed as well to bring the bike back in balance. 500km's in the Eifel tomorrow should take care of that!

IIRC there is only 1 on the bike as bought, the left one. I have checked my early photos of mine to confirm this and others have mentioned this previously. I have no clue why.

Could you have another problem ?

I looked at high res pictures of my bike zoomed in, and I definately had a feeler on that side. Or at least I had something sticking out the bottom of the peg that isn't there anymore.

Spend about 1 hour cleaning the car and 1 hour cleaning the bike today outside in the sun, nothing that I could see looked broken off or sheared, and I was trying hard to find anything...

Well i thought i had lost mine too, but my dealer said it was never placed, and anybody i asked never had a right one, the left one put there to prevent ceterstand spillage, if you ignore the feeler, the centrestand will hit the deck, and boy is that a thrilling experience...

Thrilling as in a low side and slide across the pavement. I totaled my first bike this way about 8 years ago. GL500 Honda. When i first got it, i thought the pegs looked so high that i would never scrape...

Anybody ridden a Strom and can compare the cornering clearance to the S10? Guys on Stroms in the sport-touring group I use to ride with were dragging all the time. After binning the GL, I bought an SV650 and raised it an inch. No more scraping issues until track days

Raising the rear also gives you better turn-in response.

Could scrape the pegs on my DL1000 but could never get it to turn-in very well. Probably the main reason I sold it. My 2005 KLR can scrape pegs and turns-in very well (loaded or not) and I have it raised.

The Super Tenere turns-in very well but I would like to see how much better it could get.

Scrape pegs on the Strom AFTER I changed tires.
Before that I used to run out of tread and luckily the Michelin had a nice forgiving nature at that point.



The SV I kept scraping my boots. My legs were a bit long for the thing and my boots used to stick out sideways.

Cheers

rear suspension

Hello,

can someone tell me where I can find the compression adjuster of the damper?
I noticed a screw on the right side at the bottom of the damper and I suppose it is for the rebound, not the compression.

Thank you in advance.

Best wishes
Georgios
