    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

    Yesterday I discovered my rear tire was worn out to less than 1 mm of thread left, so I needed to chnage for the new one. I normally let it to be done by the shop, but this time all the near by mechanics were busy and could only find time for next week. But they said, if I take the wheel off...

    Triumph Tiger 1200 2018 On

    I spent a day on this before I bought S10. I liked to ride on it very much, the triple is really exciting. Did not feel any more heavier for me than the S10 But I was worried about its reliability and the dealer's ability to fix the problems. Yamaha was a safe option, I am very happy with it.

    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

    Rolled it out first time after winter today, installed Pazzo levers and Helibars risers, did a short 20 minutes round. A bit too chilly for me though (+10 C), I like the temps to be at least +15 C.

    On the fence

    I am very sensitive to the vibes. So before I bought my ST I tested a number of bikes, including Multistrada. The ST is by far the smoothest, very soft vibes. Then comes Trimph Tiger 1200, BMW 1250 GS, Multistrada and KTM Super Adventure being the worst. The vibes of KTM were so bad that the...

    Need urgent advice about Florida weather

    Thanks a lot to everybody, I successfully managed to change my ticket to JFK in June, from where we probably will be heading to New England and Canada for 2 weeks. Any suggestions for beautiful places and attractions on that direction are mostly welcome.

    Need urgent advice about Florida weather

    Well, we have become a victim to the Trump travel ban from Europe, we had scheduled a holiday trip to Miami starting from this Saturday the 14th, just few hours after the travel ban enters to force. Our airliner is offering us to change the flight time until August the 20th, we need to decide it...

    Help me make a decision?

    I have Touratech standard size seat and can confirm that it is much better than the stock seat. 6-700 km per day is no probmlems.

    A different kind of ride planning...Europe

    As pointed out before here, travelling in Eurpoe is very, very easy and no need to engage touring companies or do any prebookings for accommodation. I have done many trips around Eastern and Western Europe as well as in Alps. Never booked any hotel beforehand. Typically we would start off early...

    Garmin Zumo 595LM

    I am using this one, pretty satisfied. It is my second unit, first went with the previous bike to the new owner. Once you get used to all its functions (which takes some time) it is pretty reliable. No problems with vibes and rain, also the screen is OK in sunshine. Avoid using the adventurous...

    Blågrisen

    Wellkommen, Blagrisen! Sweden has also many very nice scenic roads. We passed it this summer on our trip to Germany, from Kappelskär to Göteborg and have taken other nice routes many times before. So no need to travel to Japan really :)

    The 2021 Yamaha Tenere 700

    I took my S10 for the 10 000 km service today and got the T7 for test ride. What a nice bike it is. I am not really its target customer as I do not do any offroad, gravel road is basically the most extreme that I ride. But I have to say it is a very smooth and enjoyable bike for the pavement...

    From FJR to S10

    I did a trip in Europe this summer, from Estonia through Sweden, Denmark to Germany and back through Poland. In Germany and Poland had some occations on the motorway and 140 km/ h was the highest speed I was comfortable with. After that the noise and buzz became uncomfortable for me, although...

    From FJR to S10

    I am among those swithcing from FJR to ST. For me ST is much more nimble, easier to handle and more comfortable riding position up to the speeds of 140 km/h. Over that, the air resistance, noise and rattle of ST would make it less comfortable than FJR. Otherwise I am more than happy with ST. My...

    Sorry to hear about your trouble, squarebore. I did order the fusebox and connection cables from EB this winter, it arrived in reasonable time and the quality was very good indeed, easy to install. No problems whatsoever
