Finally drank the S10 Kool Aid
« on: August 04, 2017, 01:43:31 pm »
I recently picked up a used 2012 with around 8700 miles on it. I've put about 750 miles on it in 10 days and 5 of those days I had to leave it parked. It's safe to say, I really like it.

I shouldn't complain, but I'm having trouble finding much to farkle. It came with the factory shield, tall Vstream, Winglets, Madstad bracket, Hepco & Becker skid plate, Altrider crash bars, Headlight guard, Oxford heated grips, Auxiliary lights, Admore brake light, Rox risers, brand new Caribou Luggage 35L Pelican cases, Hepco & Becker detachable racks, Pelican 1400 top case, and Sargent seat.

I transferred a few creature comforts from my Honda...Doubletake mirrors, RAM mounts, and my SmartSkin grip buddies. I also took off the Pelican top case and stock aluminum rack to replace it with the aluminum Givi Monokey rack, so I could use my big ass Kappa 52 liter top case.

All that's left is to ride this sexy beast and grin until I wear the last 500-700 miles off the Shinko 804/805 skins that came on it. I think I've settled on a set of Mitas E-07s when the time comes.
I shall pass this way but once. Any good that I can do or any kindness I can show; let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
