Site noob saying "Hi".
« on: October 19, 2017, 04:54:42 pm »
Hi...

My name is Paul and I'm in the UK. Not an S10 owner yet but it is looking like the favourite option over the other shaft drive big trailies out there. I'm 6'7" with a 36" inseam, so tall bikes are a must. My last bike was a 650cc vstrom which I had raised up suspension, thicker padding on the saddle etc and I could still stand over it... Now I have met a partner who likes to go on the bike too, so something bigger for 2up riding is needed and I wanted shaft drive. I've looked at the BMWs, Honda crosstourer and the triumph Explorer but nothing seems to tick the boxes like the S10 does. I'm enjoying reading the forum. There are some knowledgeable people on here and I hope I can contribute.

Keep it shiny side up, folks!

a simple hello, tallpaul.....
