They look good,  the fact the colour temp of all the lights is the same really helps the look.

Thanks. Inconsistent lighting colors kind of  bugs me.

Mine doesn't get winter breaks. She'll be back on the road again 7.00AM On Monday.

Picked up my 2nd super ten yesterday,it's secondhand but immaculate,so today I took off the 12v socket and spliced into the wires and soldered in my sat nav wire so it only comes on with the ignition,the accessory plug was taken up by the heated grips,hoping my rack and sat nav bar comes in the week then put them on after work and hopefully will be out on it next weekend.

Pulled the rear suspension off to grease everything.

Why are these motorcycle companies afraid to use a little grease!! 

Next up is coolant change and maybe get to the head bearings tonight or tomorrow.

Took it out for the first ride of the year!  Got above 40* so away we go. Planning to winter in Arizona from now on...

Changed the coolant this afternoon, but that's about it.  Steering head bearings in the morning and the rest of the stuff I guess.

Washed 4,100km of crud off it yesterday and replaced a blown bulb.  Goes into the shop for a busted fork seal tomorrow, then I need to sort out how to protect the seals better...

I let mine sit while I took the FJR on a run to Portland to the Areostich pop up event. I had thought about it but the FJR has the Farkles and the S-10 needs it's own.

Took a local 700 km return ride to the west coast of Vancouver Island with a friend of mine on his new 18 GSA1200 Rallye to finish off the bikes break in. We stayed over night and the temps. dropped to -2 C so the roads were a little sparkly with frost and a little unnerving when we left for home in the morning.

No pretty pictures yet, but I called the dealer to have them get mine out of storage and ready for pickup weekend after next. Maybe by then we'll be done with all these friggin' snowstorms up here.
