    Heated gear for a Super Tenere

    Regarding brands. I've had both Warm and Safe and Gerbing. Both work well. The Warm and Safe can be gotten in windproof/waterproof versions as well. When it comes to controllers, you can't beat the Warm and Safe remote heat troller. Eliminates all the wires except the power cord to the bike and...

    Heated gear for a Super Tenere

    I used to run a vest, then switched to a heated liner. My arms stayed a lot warmer and best of all I could plug my heated gloves directly into the jacket. Heated grips are fine for mildly cold weather, but in once temps get into the 30s the heated gloves combined with heated grips are awesome...

    What is a high mileage for a Super Tenere?

    You got a good point there, I bought my S10 with just 13,000 km on it and paid 8K less than the original owner had bought it for. He was even kind enough to add the OEM side cases and PIAA driving lights. I spent 3K of that savings on an XT250, another used bike with just 1,300 km on it. No...

    Touring or Sport mode

    I normally avoid the dumbed-down T-mode but I did find if useful on dirt the other day as it makes the throttle less sensitive to small inputs, which is welcome on loose surfaces. This isn't the stock T-mode though, it's been altered by my ECU flash to use the 6th gear map in every gear.

    What is a high mileage for a Super Tenere?

    The money you will lose selling a perfectly good 40,000 km Gen II could be used to add a second bike to the stable instead.

    How To: Cycle the ABS Pump

    So cycling it either through the front or rear brake is fine? The rear is easy to activate.

    How To: Cycle the ABS Pump

    Does doing this eliminate the need to cycle the ABS pump? I had my dealer change my brake fluid when they were replacing the pads and they probably didn't cycle the ABS pump if the service manual doesn't mention it.

    Shout out for Terry Adcox seats

    So if you buy a used seat it will be next to impossible for them to determine its value as they sell for anything from $50 to several hundred.

    Shout out for Terry Adcox seats

    You must be a big guy, I'm too forward to benefit from a rider's back rest. Had one on my Road King though and loved it.

    Shout out for Terry Adcox seats

    Must be a way around that if you buy used. How could they know the value? I sold my AT Sargent seat to a Kiwi.

    Shout out for Terry Adcox seats

    Happily the performance backs the handsome looks, unlike some other aftermarket seats.

    Shout out for Terry Adcox seats

    My butt likes to whinge and by the end of a long day ride it'd be complaining on the S10. Odd because the seat feels comfortable at first. I'm guessing it's a combination of the stock seat's sponginess and grippy top. The time it was happy would get progressively shorter on multi-day tours, a...

    Shout out for Terry Adcox seats

    Late last year I bought a used Terry custom seat from a forum member here who was a similar size to me and finally got a long ride in last weekend. It passed the comfort test with flying colors. No aches or pains at the end of a long day, whereas the stock seat would have had me squirming. I've...

    Arrow Header Availability

    They did when I ordered one in 2013, but they didn't when I ordered one for my Gen II this year. Cost-cutting on Arrow's part.

    Base Layer | LDComfort or Motoskiveez

    Could be my body chemistry too, I generally find polyester shirts get pretty rank smelling when I wear them in the summer.
