    Sport bike v. Tenere

    I figured we might want to start a new thread since we hi-jacked the other one; BMW GS Update. A sport bike, by design, is made for sport; handling, and speed. Duh. The Tenere, by design, is a compromise; pavement, and not pavement. Apples and oranges. MY point is that, for what it is. . ...

    Soft straps

    Y'all might already know about these. If you do, ignore me. I found these the other day; 6 for $15.00. 3k pound service limit, and 10K pound break limit. My trailer is a pipe frame, with limited tie down spots. These things eliminate the need for dedicated tie down anchors. I loop them...

    And now, for something totally different.

    It STARTS at $29,799, tops out at 95mph with a 75bhp electric motor, 3.0-3.5 0-60mph, and has a 110mi range. o_O My guess is the limited top speed is to extend the range. In MY opinion, this is an urban bike only; hard to go across country, 100mi at a time. And, IF it is only an urban...

    Tenere in Godley TX

    On Friday, 16NOV18, I saw a bike coming, and much to my surprise, it turned out to be a Tenere. It was at dusk, and all I could tell was that is was "Yamaha" (not Cobalt) blue, with OE bags. I was in the white Charger going in the opposite direction. I'm in Joshua, so....

    Issue Sign In/Out

    I am, occasionally, getting "signed out"; without me signing out. Minutes ago, I attempted to view a picture and was told that I had to sign in. But when I clicked on the "issues" link it shows that I am already signed in. Not a big deal, just something I noticed.

    Finally! Actually saw a Super Tenere in the wild.

    Monday, in Cleburne TX, a 60th Anniversary at the West End Grill. Had bag mounts, but no bags. First one I've seen in the wild in over a year; I couldn't stop and investigate further. I was wondering if you are a local, or just cruisin' through. ::001::

    "NEW" Yamaha Sport Tour

    The FJ-09 is gone for '18 & the "new" Tracer will be here for '19. Makes sense to me. I've always wondered why Yamaha has similar bikes with different names/options. Maybe they're cleaning house....consolidating? I know there are more than a few FZ-09 fans there's one that'll go...

    RIDE with Norman Reedus

    For those of y'all that DON'T know, Season 2 of RIDE with Norman Reedus starts tonight on AMC. In Season 1, he started out on a Ducati, but ended up on a Triumph. (Tiger) He seems like a genuine "bike guy", and could be one of us. ::017::
