    Hello from New Zealand.

    So so sorry to hear of your situation. Hang in there mate...your country is stellar, and your PM is one of the best. I long to to return to NZ and AUS. and hopefully either buy or rent a bike . Our previous visit in 2020 was a car trip. I'm in Canada and our riding season is coming to an end...

    Left lights on. Is battery fried?

    What year is your Tenere? I think Yammy is still using lead acid batteries in the Tenere. If your battery is older than two years, then just buy a new battery. SHUMBA Sent from my SM-A715W using Tapatalk

    Trade up or expand the fleet?

    Yup, I miss the shaft drive. However with a centre stand on my 2020 Africa Twin DCT chain cleaning lubing is easy do. A bikes colour means absolutely nothing to me..and no, I'm not colour blind SHUMBA Sent from my SM-A715W using Tapatalk And happy bike shopping to you SHUMBA

    Trade up or expand the fleet?

    Nope, go ahead, treat yourself to a new or newer S10 with CC My 2018 ES model had CC. I'm now riding a 2020 Africa Twin DCT model non adventure and it has CC. The automatic transmission along with CC sealed the deal for me. SHUMBA Sent from my SM-A715W using Tapatalk

    Sorry don't know, but check with a Yammy dealership and they should be able to look up part numbers. My guess is, it will fit as the Super Tenere (2018) generation two bikes are still in production. SHUMBA (ex 2018 ES owner) Sent from my SM-A715W using Tapatalk

    Carrying extra fuel how long to keep in container before needing to use

    Hmmmm....I'd say, maximum 2 months. Gas goes stale and gummy after a while. SHUMBA Sent from my SM-A715W using Tapatalk

    Hello from Canada

    Interesting, hmmm...I almost bought a Tracer 3 and or an FJR (rocket). I settled on a 2018 Tenere ES. Great bike, 46,500 km in two Ontario Canada seasons. I'm told the Tracer is a fast bike...torquey, capable of high speeds. However, not great on gravel, whereas the Tenere shines on gravel...
