Would highly recommend the mapping, actually i would first buy the mapping and then ask them to throw in a XT1200.
Ok, thanks for the answer.... another hit in the wallet...

You sure have a strong zoom lens to get that from your place.

My wife and I always say that we'll be retiring in Carmel. In all the places we went while living in SoCal, that was our favorite.

Now we just need to figure out how to make a few million dollars

I don't ride any hardcore offroad. However, some of the gravel I ride can get choppy in some areas. If I have a little weight in the box, is the plastic up to the task?...or is this strictly a "street" set-up?

I guess with the whole "11lbs" sticker, and the fact that the mount is plastic, I'm a little spooked.
Yamaha very quickly realized that the black plate was too weak and they changed it as a recall for all Euro/UK bikes in about Sept/Oct 2010.

The change between the two was dramatic and the ones supplied on all (assumption) bike since, including the USA ones are very substantial.
As the end of the day, it is a plastic box on a plastic mount.

Which is fine as long as you don't over load with lead bars or something.

Picked it up yesterday from Team Powersports in Garner, NC. Great experience overall. Upgrading from a farkled DRZ400S. I love this bike. It's the balance of street bike and dirt bike that I was looking for. I felt the 800cc offerings were to small for passenger and luggage but the 1200cc bikes carried a heavy price tag with a lot of features I didn't want. Yamaha nailed it.

Going back next weekend to get the factory side cases installed.

I won't go there again. Any bike I own from here on out will have maintenance requirements that are less demanding.

Another thing about the LC8 I don't miss is the fact that the riding experience is pure adrenaline: there is no element of relaxation in the riding experience. Maybe I'm just getting old.

I test rode a S10 some months back, and liked it immediately. It didn't take long for it to "click". It made the short list, along with the Stelvio. I won't spring for a Super Ten until I've ridden a Stelvio. Neither of these bikes will require as much down time as the KTM.
Hey Stobie,

Don't know if you remember me. Few years back I think I sent you my bent 950SM front rim. (I bought new replacement)
Anyways, so your SE is gone?

Well 25,000 miles is pretty impressive on an SE! So no judgement here. But there might never be another bike like that one.

Hey, go get that S10. Especially if you are "gettin old".

Cheers
