    Shinko 804/805's

    Re: Shinko 804/805 I have a set on my KLR (Mitas E-07 on the Tenere) and don't like them in mud (squirrely). Other than that they are good.

    "On bike" storage?

    I like the idea of the factory tool storage. Is there enough space for the Pump and other goodies?

    "On bike" storage?

    2014 ES Mods, Custom Designs, Accessories List & Info

    Mitas E-07 dakar with tubes? Opinions required

    My Super Tenere

    Nice photos SpaceTraveler. Did you do a write-up on the Mitas E-10's? The E-07 Dakar's made a huge difference for my 2015 ES.

    2019 Super Tenere - anyone hear any rumours ?

    The improvements I would like are... ... Better handlebar position for the average rider. This is based on probably 90% of the Super Tenere's have a riser of some sort. ... Horse Power increase, I don't think so. There are many companies offering to change the ECU mapping which will make the...

    I understand your craving(s). Been wanting something different but I won't get rid of the 2015 Super Tenere ES (yet). This might help you make your decision ride this route on you Super Tenere and while you are enjoying your Huge Smile... ask yourself if the...
