    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

    Just put my 2020 registration sticker on my back plate. Temps will be in the single digits much of the next 48 hours so I was glad to do that. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    A different kind of ride planning...Europe

    Sounds fun. Watch your seed in Switzerland as they take it very seriously. Other than that enjoy everything there is on the German bikes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    DS Bike protection BE CAREFUL very delay delivery

    Mine was delivered last Thursday via UPS after it was turned over by, which is terrible. I received my gear on 14 November when said 31 October. It’s below freezing in the garage, so I’ll be waiting for a warm up to be install. However, I wish DS Bike had been upfront and told...

    DS Bike protection BE CAREFUL very delay delivery

    I’ve contacted them quite a few times. They had to se d back the original 11 sets they had as they failed QC. They just sent out the approved units, but mine were estimated to arrive on Oct. 31st, yet no contact or delivery. I’ve already told DS Bike that this needs a good follow up as I...

    Any instability at high speed 120MPH ++

    I live on the East Coast in Western NY. Too many police here. Unlike when I lived in the Rocky Mountain states or WA State. So no high speeds here, but minus bags I don’t see why the S10 couldn’t go 120+. I’ve easily done that on an Interceptor and much higher on a Busa. That thing was death...

    Rushing, tire plugs, and TPMS vs Mitas E07 failure

    Crazy story. I’m glad you are safe. The bike didn’t even get permanently messed up. Yes you should have checked you tire pressure, and I believe TPMS can save lives, but with newer tires and changing seasons, all of us should be checking out our tires more. Thank God that this just turned...

    Sticky downshifting, smooth upshifting

    Coyote Ugly, but long, long before there was a movie. Skanks tend to act like flies around a poop as a bar rings “last call!” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Tank Grips. Stomp Grip or Snake Skin

    That’s the same color pattern that I have on my S10. After searching things stateside, I bit the bullet and bought the Snake Skin that was designed for the Super Tenere in black. I can believe it was $80 but when compared to the stomp grip I was not saving much money in exchange for problems...

    Tank Grips. Stomp Grip or Snake Skin

    I really want some tank grips, where my armored pants have my knees next to the tank on my 2013 S10. They don’t need to go very high as my knees only go up about 3” on the side of the tank. The custom Snake skin is almost $80. I think that is quite pricy for what you get. But perhaps I could...

    First gen S10

    I am quite happy with my low-mileage 2013, but no panniers though most everything else including ECU reprogram. I don’t feel too much vibration but I’ve had many bikes with much worse. You can always add Rox risers that have vibration dampening for very little. I’ve never had a CC before...

    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

    Monday I ended up taking my hound to the vet for an ear infection. That cost me $180US. Ouch. Today I installed the Denali mini air horn. Best cheap mod so far. A 5 minute install that’s plug and play and sounds like an older GM horn. No more Roadrunner horn. I also reinstalled the skid...

    Heated grips.

    I just put on a new mini air horn which took about 5-10 minutes. I think I’m going to give it a shot. Decent weather here for a few more weeks. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The over pricey Touratech

    I’m certain the ADV market, much like the Harley and BMW market get soaked in all upgrades and accessories because they can for exactly the reasons stated above. Sure most of us can fabricate something almost as good if not better. As adults usually 30+ years in age, we know that sorting out the...

    Which Exhaust Slip-On has the best sound / performance?

    I bought my lightly used 2013 S10 and it came with a 2 Brothers and I have the stock in the basement. The 2 Brothers was put on with one of Anthony’s ECU flashes. Previously I had never considered 2 Brothers. I saw them in similar category like D&D. I was always a Yoshimura guy but loved...

    Interesting article on helmets.

    I did check out SNELL 2015 and they have updated many things as well. I too worked trauma shifts in the ER of multistage trauma center. I fully concur about getting the full face, comfortable helmet that you will wear each and every ride. The worst vehicular stuff that actually came in not...

    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

    I was wondering what kind of paint you guys were using. I thought it might be black chimney/Grill paint that’s seriously heat resistant, but I think that stuff is matte if I remember. It’s been awhile since I used some. I’ll reinstall my OEM skid plate tomorrow. I have had it off since...
