same fuel consumption as the TDM850
great fun sliding it round corners on a set of knobblies
not as bad off road as you'd expect from a big bike

worst thing about an S10 is the brakes, you are better off turning round on the seat and farting....

It's not the fuel consuption its the shock of 26X1.16 every time to fill it.
Last time I filled the TDM it was 17.50.

The XTZ750 server is having a right hissy fit.... php requests are hammering the server but they're not coming via the forum software...

I am planing on dropping down the site tonight to see if I can get round the problem, but if need be then I'll drop down the site sooner.

Will try to keep everyone informed via here...

looks like DNS issues affecting the site at the moment, possibly due to server IP address change
should hopefully be fixed in a couple of hours *fingers crossed*

I gotta XTZ Tam and I only ever put a 10er in the tank to save fuel weight - unless I'm touring. That way it's cheaper to run than your TDM smile.gif

I'm visiting from Carpe-TDM. I used to own an S10 when they were newish. Loved it.
If you regularly keep the tank only half full, it will get much water in the fuel through condensation of moist air on the cold tank walls overnight. Throw a cup of Methylated Spirits in with a full tank every month or so - that'll dissolve the water into the fuel to be burned harmlessly. Stops corrosion particles stuffing your fuel system. ;-)

Have you bought a scooter? tongue.gif

I helped Perforance Bikes do a track day at Knockhill many yonks ago (showed Rupert Paul how to ride properly and stop trying to wear his knees out tongue.gif ) on a S10 - feckin' hoot! Took the bike back to Carrick Motorcycles used bike showroom with the tyres melted and the sump plate worn to a sliver on the right side. laugh.gif

Carrick gave me a Kawasaki KR1S to play on that day as well but the S10 was much more fun dry.gif

Best part of the day was hooning a full race Honda RC30 (in pic, I'm on the KR1S No8 next to journo Mark Forsyth) at the end of the day when everyone was off the track - best bike I've ever ridden good.gif
