    Paint code

    Assuming you are in the US, try these guys https://touchupdirect.com/touch-up-paint/yamaha I have never used them. I normally take painted part to local aftermarket and have them match it. Original paint is Nippon Paint and not readily available aftermarket in US Good Luck

    BMW GS Update

    interesting comment about Babylon on the Bay. One of my BRC's last summer had a young lady who would be attending Cal across the Bay from SF. All up and down like SF. Dad had purchased a scooter with an automatic for her to get around on. He also insisted she take the BRC with standard...

    Bike pull left, cruise control hand off.

    I agree with the Camber, wind, drag etc issues. is it the bike itself? If so and it is in good repair (like 500 on the ODO) I doubt it would be significant. Consider, the motorcycle has 2 wheels and an engine acting like gyroscopes and they will tend to keep the bike upright and straight...

    V-Strom 1000 is dead. No longer being made.

    there is cruise control on the XT and Adventure versions. Cruise control was a hot button for me when I bought the Tenere I owned an 02 V-Strom. Stupid quick. Much quicker than my Super T. The 02 Strom had nothing below 3300 RPM though. I really do not think Suzuki needed to add more...

    RE: PPG paint code needed for 12 S10

    The paint was supplied to Yamaha by Nippon Paint. I do not have the color code. The PPG or Sherwin Williams refinishing stores may have a cross reference by year/model/description. Even it they do, it may not match. Your best bet is to take a painted part into one of the refinishing...

    Had a lowside, no help from TCS?

    last week I attended a "basics" class for Adventure Touring riders. Much of the instruction was done on grassy surfaces. With road tires I was very grateful for having TCS engaged. Even engaged, the rear would briefly break loose. OTOH, part of the class was without TCS and I greatly...
