    Yamaha Super Tenere MOTO-TAG photo game

    I was wondering how many here could just push the bike into the yard and take a picture? ;)

    BMW GS Update

    Understand the want for a new toy. If looking at Beemers, make sure to look at the new 1200 Triumphs (they've changed a lot for the better), and Guzzi V85TT. The Triumph is big like the Beemer and Tenere, can come with cast wheels, and when you turn down or off the traction control the power in...

    Cheap digital thermometer.

    I just figure the display is 4-5 degrees high. Weather on my phone and bank clocks usually come in about there.

    What do we now think of the bike

    With the baby you'll want to meet up with others and camp more so just take the back seat off.

    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

    I tore a knee up at the end of November and finally got to ride for the first time yesterday. It was 64 degrees out and felt FANTASTIC!!! Super careful not to move my bad knee the wrong way at stops and standing on the pegs wasn't happening, but huge progress. btw - After the 9 weeks of being...

    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

    Similar to the 1080p system on mine but the control unit is a bit nicer on his. Feedback is that they are OK as traffic cameras but not good enough for high quality Youtube type videos. Examples of stills from the video are below. The first is a bit blurred because my front camera is behind the...

    removing both tires on my super tenere at once

    Empty the tank, throw some cardboard on the ground, and lay the bike on it's right side* dirt-bike style. *The right because the rear axle comes out to the left and the front won't be that close to the ground.

    Wanted: stock pegs !

    If it were all about the bike I'd agree but typically when we are standing on the pegs we are pretty busy and balance means a lot. Having a peg break can mean losing control of the bike and getting hurt real fast. (Not my bike) Peg breaking vs wearing good boots is like the debate about...

    An old guys initial impressions of a 2012 ST.

    They do wear square till they handle like truck tires. This one's not yet too bad. On wet roads it can hydroplane pretty easy which was one reason so many of us moved to other tires. This is a Mitas E07 and you can see the round bottomed cuts to make it better on wet roads.

    An old guys initial impressions of a 2012 ST.

    Welcome aboard and congrats on the new ride. btw - You are not the oldest around. ;) There are threads around here about all the ways people have lowered the seat height. Mainly, dog bones, sliding the forks in the clamps, and lower seats (iirc Seat Concepts sells a kit too). The K60 is a...

    Wanted: stock pegs !

    Don't have any but if these are for somebody who stands on the pegs a lot I suggest going for aftermarket. The OEMs are cast and the castings are porous.

    Still selling at REI for $149.95 and lowest price online is $100. Just checked with the company and there'd be no charges or transfer fees other than what'd be normal for setting up the device brand new. They do now have some kind of flex plan. This is just for the device, I carried it in my...
