    Found myself a little strumpet.

    Given that for many folk, including yours truly, 2016 been a bit of a troubling year, I needed something to make the immediate future feel a little brighter. I have always wanted to have a second bike and something that I can fix using spanners rather than a laptop. Having had some heart...

    A new arrival in the shed

    Prior to my S10, I had a four year stint with a 05 Tiger 955i and before that, a nine year affair with a '98 Thunderbird Sport. The Tiger got me into the ADV bike scene but my TBS was the best fun to ride out over the back roads of the Peak District. I've hankered after another 900 triple for...

    Arrow header pipe advice

    After much deliberating and head scratching as to whether I should go a stage further with forking my S10, my mind was made up for me after I bagged a very clean set of Arrow headers for my S10, through flea-bay (see photo). I'm not planning to fit them just yet but I do need some advice, as...

    Can anyone in USA help?

    I've just purchased a new HJC IS-33 II helmet for summer use and have been looking to buy a peak visor for it. The only trouble is, it's neither a supplied or accessory item, over here in the UK or Europe. It would seem that this is only supplied with helmets , or as an accessory to HJC's U.S...

    Advice regarding a dodgy retailer

    Earlier last month I decided to bite the bullet and bought myself a Raid toolbox for my 2011 S10, from DS Bike Protection, who are based in Spain. When the box arrived, I found that the black paint finish was slightly damaged but as it wouldn't show when fitted to the bike, I didn't see it as a...

    I also WTB 2014-15 screen adjuster

    Just about to write this up when I noticed that polishadam82 had beaten me to it. ::) Still, it can't hurt to put it out there anyway, so here goes. Does anyone out there have an O.E. screen adjuster from their 2014-15 Tenere that they wish to sell on. Like polishadam82, I get a sense that some...

    They finally get it!

    It would seem that after many years of tacit indifference and damning with very faint praise, the UK motorcycling press finally understands what we have known and appreciated for a long time. After reading the new years BIKE magazine review of the new Honda AT, I looked at the page of...

    Uprating my headlights

    As the nights have been closing in, i've been riding in the dark more often and have noticed that my headlights are somewhat lacking in distance penetration and brightness. It's not an enormous issue and compared to the feeble AAA battery powered excuses for lights on my old Tiger 955i, they're...

    Can anybody here help a ham fisted pillock?

    I do rate myself as having a modicum of mechanical prowess but despite this, I managed to put a small but perfectly formed hole in my S10's radiator this morning (please don't ask, i'm humiliated enough already ::010::). I've checked out nearly all of the bike breakers in the UK, plus a few in...

    Ughhh! or Niiiice?

    Spotted on a used 13 Tenere in my local Yamaha dealers. Either a thing of beauty or as sacrilegious as nailing Susan Boyles' face onto Rachel Weisz? Discuss……... ::017::

    Suspension upgrade report.

    After much brain picking, (thanks Rasher) deliberation and endless analysis of the cost/benefit equation, I finally decided to upgrade my suspension. After deciding to have the shock replaced with a Wilbers unit and have the front forks re-sprung and re-valved, I booked an afternoon with the...

    Which wire?

    I've just ordered myself an LED light bar for my S10 and am looking to wire it up so that it comes on with the main beam only. After looking at a lighting circuit wiring diagram, It looks like I need to tap into the L/B (Light Blue?) wire between the headlight relay and the headlight shutter...

    Opinions on crash bars wanted

    I've had a run of slightly bad luck and have been involved in two minor accidents on my S10 this year. In both incidents my left side GIVI crash bar had sacrificed itself to protect my bike, but not nearly as well as i'd have liked. The first time, I ended up sustaining damage to the radiator...
