    No. I only extended the brake lines with the helibar risers.

    **Tire Debate** Mileage vs Safety. Hard Compound vs Soft Compound

    As long as those dirt and gravel roads are dry it's fine. As soon as they get anything more than slightly humid they're worthless. I've done the Metzler Tourance NEXT, Stock Battlewings, and the E07 Dakars, I'm ready to try a real big block knobbie tire for awhile. I primarily ride dirt and sand...

    2018, 2019 Super Ten ES Foibles/Weaknesses?

    I agree. If you're expecting it to ride like a dirt bike where you can just shift your weight back and hammer the throttle to float over the rough stuff you might be surprised at how much weight is still hung high and forward by the engine and gas tank. If you're going for the gnarly stuff...

    2018, 2019 Super Ten ES Foibles/Weaknesses?

    The Gen2 bikes '14 - current model years reliability is "boring" as most owners would put it. They have ergonomic issues for most riders under 6 ft I would say. Once you start adding more luggage the suspension needs at least a heavier rear spring. The engine is IMO bulletproof. I have had no...

    "19° Super Tenere/Adventure/BMW LC " are the ones I ordered. They were recommended by Fasst. You can have them tapped by Fasst if needed. I do them myself and it takes about 20 minutes to do both sides with a tap, and cutting oil. Aftermarket bars do not come tapped. The stockers were tapped...

    After spending another 6 months recovering I finally got around to doing this. To answer anyone who's wondering: Tusk makes a bracket specifically for the fast flex bars to use hand guards that wouldn't otherwise reach. I love this setup. More so than the Protapers I ran for awhile. I bent my...

    New Maryland Bill Would Authorize Motorcycle Lane Splitting if Passed

    I can respect the effort, Bob. After testifying in Annapolis in support/opposition of other bills while I was a resident there, my eyes's were really opened at how much contempt the MD General Assembly has in for it's constituency. Zero respect or open an open mind to anyone willing to show up...

    New Maryland Bill Would Authorize Motorcycle Lane Splitting if Passed

    Bill was DOA having been sponsored by a delegate from Harford County. As a former prisoner resident of Harford and Cecil county MD there isn't much of a conversation in Annapolis thanks to long gerrymandered voting districts. If there was ever two states that needed lane filtering it was VA and...

    Gen 2 ECU Reflash

    I'm in the process of getting a flash done for my Concours and if you have or had one you probably have heard about Shoodaben. We had a good chat on the phone about the stock throttle control on the S10 and how there were limited choices out there for flashing (Anthony and ECU Unleashed). Steve...

    Too much bluetooth?

    Yes they will, but they didn't always so if you're hunting for reviews up until about 2016 the firmware on the Sena side didn't play nicely with the phone + zumo at the same time. I had the 665LM and sold it because I was so mad about that and then a month later after waiting for months asking...

    Off road riders opinions

    I'm kind of a jerk to my bike, but it keeps moving. It threw me off a few times this trip. It had been raining quite a bit in WV and one of the tracks I picked at the romney ride was super slick mud on top of large rocks. Lots of grip issues. But it was only that one track that was a PITA, and I...

    Handlebar thread

    Picked up a set of fasst flexx's to replace my Protaper ADV high bars. Interested in retaining my barkbusters. Anyone know if they work the brp hand-guard mount? I'm guessing it just takes some finessing/heat on the guards to bend them into the right shape. If it's not even close I might...
