    Yamaha Rated Highest for Reliability

    As I read this it seems people are thinking about what if this happens and what if that happens. I sold my 2012 S10 after 20k miles in 11 months because I missed the feeling of the BMW. I even went back in time and bought the 04 GSA. And yes I have already had an issue. I bought it with 18k on...

    Is anyone regularly hitting or breaking 200 miles or more per tank?

    My friend Bill rides a 2012 S-10 and he gets 45 mpg all the time. He rides smooth as silk and as a rule keeps his speed under 75mph. PS He has no side bags and I think this helps.

    So I went back to BMW GSA

    I sold the S10 after 20,000 miles in 11 months and went back to BMW. I liked the yamaha but as always when I try a new make or model I say the same thing, " Its a nice bike but still does not feel like the BMW". I love the reliabilty of Yamaha and dealer network but it does not have the...

    Altrider plate touching down in a curve

    I installed links (DOG BONES) to raise my bike 7/8". Ten min to install, best thing I ever did to the S10. I ride the Dragon 129 all the time and was hitting pegs, side bag and my left foot had no where to go. (as you all know the muffler takes up alot of space).

    dumb ? Missing rear spoke, safe to ride ?

    The funny thing is my bike is the opposite. I never had a loose spoke for the first 15k. Now in the last 5k it seems like I have a loose spoke all the time. I used locktite 290 green at about 16k. I check my spokes everyday now and in the middle of a ride. I need to tighten 1 or 2 spokes every...
