... But someday I reckon that Tenere will be sitting in the barn just like some old coot has kept his R100. When some young one asks "Hey Grandpa, why do you still have that old bike?", I'll give them that look and walk over and start it! (and then give them that other look with a grin)

Ah, R100..a good thought and reference.  After overlooking the Super Ten for several years I vividly recall the first time I rode one for a distance, the bike struck me thinking it's not the lightest or fastest, but a bike I'd probably want to keep and use longer than most other bikes I'd rotate through before and after.  When a bike does most things well enough and appears to be engineered better than most, some times its worth hanging on to for a while longer :)

Dr. Fred -


We see an expansion in your case of MBS.

Thank you Dr. Wrecks. At this point in my life I have accepted the fact that I will have to live with it.
You're only young once.
BUT, you can be immature forever! :-)

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is.

Does anyone know if the S10 was always EURO 4 compliant?
If not how come it continues to be sold in Europe without undergoing any emission control modifications like other bikes?
