Enjoy.

Love the sound, I can't wait to get my bike

How are you locking the rear wheel? did you disable the ABS?

Yes. When off-road I generally always ride with the ABS and TCS off now.

Great! That's another difference from the Vee - it too likes to spin up, but not instantly from low revs like the S10. You have to wind it up a bit... Just another indicator of superior low-down grunt from the S10.

I'm sure this has been covered somewhere else but what did you do to enable the "OFF" on the ABS?

As it's getting close for me to get my bike I have to start making a list of needs

Only problem is that the speedo is disabled along when the TCS goes off.
I will work on rectifying that soon though.

Greg.

Awesome ride yesterday with Wasp and the boyz, if I'm not hitting trees the bloody GoPro gives me grief, it would be nice if they had a remote like the Contour, some good footage went down the gurgler. Good range of bikes as well, two S10's, Beemer 800, Triumph 800 and a trusty DR400. Wasp's been given me some tuition on off road riding with the usual helpful hints, he's that kind of bloke. Options included taping feet to the footpegs, which is not a bad idea, he reckoned I could just stop next to a tree and lean on it, which would have merits if the trees would stop taking off when they see me coming, training wheels, a quad, take up knitting. Decisions, decisions.

But it was a great ride, heaps of rain has tightened up the ball bearing gravel, some narly up hill work, high speed stuff and the grand finally, baseball sized goofers on a vertical descent, loved it.

Hello,

have you tried this method?

not being a normal function:

Step 1 - Put the bike on the center stand so the rear wheel can run free...
Step 2 - Start the ignition, pull the clutch in and put the bike into 2nd gear...
Step 3 – Rev the bike in gear, allowing the rear wheel to spin until the ABS light stops flashing.

Because the front wheel is not moving and the rear is, the computer goes into error -
This disables not only the ABS, but also the traction control as well
To Re-enable the ABS
Simply stop and turn off the ignition with the key. Restart the bike as per normal.

It does work but very hard to do on the fly as Mr Wasp stated, at least with the switch you get the required result with the flick of the switch.

Exactly...^

I wanted to be able to switch "on the fly" as I come up to a boggy patch - Not wait till I get in it and have to stop to fiddle round with the dash to turn off the TCS + I am having too much fun with both systems turned off to worry about having to go through the procedure each time I start off so I generally spend the day out with both turned off..

Greg.

Nuther vid from yesterday..

Another great day out with my mates.
Sometimes we have a slow ride - Sometimes we have a quick ride.. Just depends what company we have with us..
All rides in the forest are good though, no matter what the speed.

Greg.

Yes they are John.
That is the 140/70/17 as I could not get the 150 at the time.
This tire has done around 7500kms now and is at the end of it's useful life "for me". Others would drag another few 1000kms out of this tire but they are way to squared off, and down to about 3mm of thread.
I have a set of the new k60 Scouts (150 & 110) on the way and look forward to seeing if they retain a round profile or square off a bad as these.
These are a great general purpose do it all tire and well worth the investment.

Greg.

New farkles

I sent a set of my Ducati tail chop LED indicators to a customer in the States recently and arranged a parts trade in lieu of cash exchange.

I have always thought that the heal plates on the S10 look like a third world copy of a cheap Chinese car company's component and have always liked the look of the new Touratech composite plates in black.

These parts were surprisingly cheap (for a touratech part) so the American customer jumped at the opportunity to save a few greenbacks resulting in these arriving in the mail early this morning.

Although very good quality and build, they serve no different purpose that the OEM part but definitely look sharper... I think so anyway, and that's what's important.

Ohlins shock (weighted correctly for my bulk) due in about two weeks then it's off to the suspension guy to tune the front right for me and I will be a happy Wasp...

Greg.

Edit: Yes I can see the bike is dirty, but I have pressure washed it after the weekends mudbath and will finish the clean during the week - Hopefully - If I dont go out for another ride instead.

Greg,

You sir are eevil, EEVIL I say! You tempt us will all sorts of farkles causing us to spend money! ;-) Those heel guards looked so kewl that I simply had to buy a set for my pending S10!

It has been great to see what folks who have their bikes have bought, what they liked and what they didn't. Those of us still waiting have benefited for your experiences.

I'll have my K60 Scout rear tomorrow - the Strom needs a tire and it will be a while before the S10 is here (and I have Shinkos for it anyway), so I'm going to try it on the Strom for a while. Hopefully it will get twice the mileage of the Shinko, but the thing that bothers me a bit is the way they seem to square off. The Shinko doesn't do that, not sure why. I'm going to be very curious about how it handles and wears compared to the Shinko - if the main downside to the Shinko is frequent changes (but better handling and half the price) I'll be tempted to stay with them. We'll see! Will be doing some West Virginia backroads on the K60 this weekend.

Trevor
