    Fancy is for sale - TBDBITW - 2012 Super Tenere $4k - Roanoke, VA

    Perhaps hyperbole… but now that I have your attention! This Tenere is unabashedly TBDBITW – “the biggest dirt bike in the world.” It is fully pre-dropped, pre-scratched and dinged, and unwashed. She is not the Tenere for every rider and in fact, I may come to find that it is the Tenere for no...

    Fancy gets a new stablemate

    The old WR250R was a faithful companion. She taught me alot of how to ride offroad - so much so that I was easily able to take Fancy on the TAT without issue. But it's time had come.... I felt I had gotten everything out of the WRR that it could offer and to continue the learning curve, I...

    WTB: Front Wheel for 2012 Tenere

    OK... so I finally pushed my front wheel a tad too far today. In my exuberance to fully explore the limits of the new Motoz Tractionator rear, I picked a less than ideal line and dinged the front pretty bad - or at least worse than the other dings that were already there. This one caused the...

    Portland, OR beers on 7/1?

    NW Arkansas Tenere help - on the TAT at Byrds

    I arrived at Byrds yesterday and have determined that I am getting drastically premature wear on my rear tire. I normally get 3k on these Mitas e09 Dakar rear tires but at 1400 TAT miles on it in 4 long hot days - I am around 75% spent. Due to my normal mileage I shipped a tire out to a stop I...

    Modification of factory mounts to allow OEM topbox with AltRider rear rack

    So I like my OEM topbox. It works for my uses - mainly commuting to work and school so that I can stow my helmet in the box on the bike or haul beer and groceries. I have always wanted an Altrider rear rack so that I can lash more stuff to the rear when I get out for over night adventures and I...

    Need a welding project? DIY Rumbux renovation

    I toasted my Rumbux lowers last week out in the wilds of WV. They did their job... protected the bike from damage but they valiantly gave up their life in the process. I have explored several options of bending these back and welding in some new steel for a beefy fix, but I have neither the...

    Wanted: OEM top box mount plate

    I am looking for a plastic OEM rear top box mount plate for an experimental project that will require cutting the mount up to fab a new way to mount my top box. Part looks like this: I don't want to destroy the one that came with my bike so I am on the hunt for a "donor plate" that I can...

    Feedback on EVS knee brace/armor?

    Took the WRR out to the Wayahutta OHV area near Cullowhee, NC yesterday to ride with a crew of seasoned moto vets. In an effort to keep up I pushed beyond what my skill envelope and the conditions warranted. I took several big diggers - the first of which resulted in a significant knee bruise. I...

    WTB: Rear luggage rack - AltRider

    I want a rear luggage rack - preferably in black but bare aluminum can work. Most familiar with the AltRider but will entertain others. I am really looking to create the void below the rack where I can stash a waterproof first-aid kit. After the injury on our Romney ride, I want to be better...
