    The Honda has a 21" front wheel, chain drive, and is much lighter. The Tenere has a 6 1/2 gallon fuel tank, shaft drive, and weighs 600lbs. The Honda is the better off road bike. But, and I am biased, the Tenere rules everywhere else. First of all, she feels lighter than the scale reads...

    That seems to go hand-in-hand, bad customers leaving bad tips. Texas Roadhouse is our favorite place to go for steaks. I've never been to one, and received bad service, or a bad steak. We usually order the Cactus Blossom, and the largest sized steak(s) we like. (That way, we have leftovers...

    We always had plenty of animals when the kids were young, and at home. At one time we had five dogs. We only have a couple of acres, but even that requires plenty of up keep. As the years pass, less is much better. As the dogs pass, they are not replaced. We've even talked about trading...

    What Type Of Riding We Do On Our Super Tenere's

    Uhhhh. . . . somewhat rough? Mildly rocky? I think that could be challenging in a Jeep. :oops:

    In certain circumstances, it is. But, it's a great way of saying "get of my lawn", without having to say it, and getting your neighbor all butt-hurt. :D

    Welcome from Texas. Move up to. . . . what? Another blue & white spinning prop. . . . or a gloriously boring Tenere? :D

    Xt1200z suspension settings

    Like I said, everybody has their preferences. I don't know a damn thing about sag. A bike either feels "right", or it handles like shit. I'm 300lbs, and have ridden several bikes very hard in the real world. The Tenere can/will hold with the best of them. But, here is Chris's portion of a...

    What Type Of Riding We Do On Our Super Tenere's

    I would say so. . . . it's doing the "side stroke".:D

    WOW which one would you buy.

    When I saw that he was referring to it as a 50th anniversary. . . . I knew the rest THAT ad was going to be B.S. And, the second ad. . . . "brand new"? What year brand new? On the Yamaha website 2019 & 2020 are white. If it's a "brand new" that's been painted/wrapped. . . . that's a red flag...

    Xt1200z suspension settings

    Let me start by saying that a suspension thread is almost an oil thread. Everybody has their preferences, but I don't feel the bike is under sprung. The max load for the bike is 450lbs. To me, a rough break down is that each helmet equates to 200lbs, and the luggage equates to 50lbs. I weigh...

    New bike day is best bike day!

    The ST1300PA has a fuel shut off at 120mph. There were SO many times that I was keeping it at 119mph. Rock solid. Before the switch from BMW, I did some reading on the instability. It was narrowed down to motor cops in the UK that were having the biggest issue. Apparently, there was an...

    New bike day is best bike day!

    It's a good, solid bike. It was a very good replacement for my RT1150. I can't believe Honda did away with it, and replaced with what they did. Tons of RT1150s were being replaced by ST 1300s. It has better/lighter slow speed handling than the FJR. But, the FJR's high speed handling is...

    I'd hazard a guess, that this isn't the first time he's done this. Nor, is it likely the first complaint. Unfortunately, many companies use the "shotgun" method, by playing the odds. Do this type of thing to everybody. . . . expecting/hoping people don't complain. . . . and they don't. It's...

    If your insurance company now believes the roof needs to be repaired/replaced, I'd do it. Insurance companies don't like spending money, so apparently it's needed. Your home is your castle. . . . and biggest investment/asset. As far as him being a neighbor? Do NOT let that affect your...
