    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

    Did same here. After a couple of months testing, I removed the Zumo XT and tossed it on a shelf.....not looking back.

    Tablet based Nav, Non-Garmin / TomTom / (NAV)

    While I was joking (sorta), I have no problem with either my Cardo Freecom1 or Cardo HD. Just be aware that for some weird reason (known problem) the "play", "skip", and "stop" buttons on the BT headset don't function when paired, you have to use the corresponding buttons on the Carpuride to...

    Tablet based Nav, Non-Garmin / TomTom / (NAV)

    Works pretty much the same way in the mobile app......FYI.

    Tablet based Nav, Non-Garmin / TomTom / (NAV)

    Scroll all the way to the bottom of the Map Layers and you'll see the "Add Layers" option: Once you click the "Add Map Layers "plus sign", it'll open that whole library available to you. You can search through them all or just use the search (try typing "ecplipse" in the search box):

    Cruise Control Issue

    This was the culprit with my intermittent CC issues.

    Solo Ride Coast To Coast- California To South Carolina (and back)

    Agreed. With several cross country trips under my belt, I finally settled on a comfortable (and sustainable) pace of 250-300 miles per day. Off the slab that translates to @ 6 hours, meaning I can sleep past the ass crack of dawn, take my time getting on the road, stop and see some sights along...

    Checking In from Newfoundland

    No worries Leif, welcome aboard. Stick around and let us know how you make out with the Stryker. While this is a Tenere forum...."We like bike", and there's a great crew of enthusiasts here. Many members own bikes other than the S10 but the community keeps us around. Warning: Be careful, these...

    Howdy, my name is Patrick

    Welcome! Assuming valve checks have been performed at specified intervals (every 26K)? Take a look at the rubber vacuum plug on the right side throttle body sync port, they tend to get brittle and crack. While you're at it, sync those TB's. That's all I got, the smart guys in the room will be...

    S10 v GS 1300 (or 1200)

    Well, the S10 doesn't require a driveshaft replacement every 36K miles.....I'd say that's a "virtue". ;) "For the BMW R 1300 GS, BMW explicity recommends replacing the shaft every 36 000 miles / 60 000 km. This is quite a big job, but important preventative maintenance."...

    Yamaha Super Tenere MOTO-TAG photo game

    I hate to contradict Ericv, but the rules are listed in post #8. (no file photos)

    Yamaha Super Tenere MOTO-TAG photo game

    I respectfully (and vehemently) disagree......I was explicitly told NO FILE PHOTOS when I posted a file shot, the rationale being that the whole purpose of this thread is to get people out and riding. I could probably have grabbed 90% of the tags here if file photo's were allowed, please...

    AltRider tail luggage rack storage ideas

    Kinda sorta but not explicitly (and not advertised as such, it's just heavy denier nylon). I used a ziploc freezer bag for stuff I didn't want to get wet.

    Wrong screws came with SW Motech tank ring?

    Is there really such a thing as a screw being too long? :p

    Yamaha Super Tenere MOTO-TAG photo game

    Yeah, I probably should have bought the R. Hopping curbs on cast wheels is kinda dicey.

    Next up: Animal statue or statue of local hero. Local hero Secretariat, just in time for the 150th Run for the Roses on Saturday. Bonus points for hopping the median onto the roundabout for a better picture:

    Mosko Reckless 80Ls

    Sorry, too little too late, but I can confirm the R80's work fine on the S10 without any additional racks, guards, etc.

    AltRider tail luggage rack storage ideas

    It's referred to as the "Super Tenere Tail Bag" on the Storm site's gallery page, drop them an email and see what they say?

    The end of a beautiful relationship?

    I could be wrong but as I understand it, when it gets "flooded", the cylinder walls get washed down with fuel which flushes the oil film away and causes a large loss in compression (temporarily) resulting in even more woe when trying to get it started.
