Man, some of you are really going to town on the farkels. Great lists. But.... you might want to tote up the poundage on everything - it adds up. I see 125+ lbs being added with some of these lists, which puts the bike right at 700-lbs or so. Then actually fill up all that luggage, and you're probably getting into the 800+ lb range. Are you really going to ride something with a weight approaching a Goldwing in the dirt?

Light is right folks.

I'm with you Markjenn, lets figure some way to get a bit of weight off, not on!

But of course, some farkles has to come, such as panniers. I plan on riding some distance 2up, but no single track (if I can help it, kind of hard to turn around sometimes ).

I'm just ready for a bike that keeps the front wheel on the ground in 2nd for a change!

Here is one mean looking Tenere. Some of the Farkle on this one I have not seen anyone post them up for the US yet.

I like the front fork protector and how about the swing arm protector

That is Yamaha's Worldcrosser concept version and the farkles aren't available at this time.

Weight / Overall look

The World Crosser is the look I am after.

Wasp's luggage rack with pillion seat removed is AWESOME! I'll be doing that on day one.

Removal of the passenger pegs will be the second weight reduction step for me. Aftermarket exhaust - Wasp's system in the lead at the moment, together with losing the heat shield will be third.

I am in a real dilemma about the hard bags. Always been against them, but seem like a good idea for the S10 for commuting and on road trips. But a long not too tall bag of some sort mounted on that large rack area we now have with the pillion seat removed might make hard panniers unnecessary. For Adventure rides the Giant Loop bag together with all the space available on the pillion area/rear rack should be more than adequate.

I'm going to do side (Micatech V2's) and top case (Givi), crash bars, skid plate, heated grips, SW quick lock tank bag mount and maybe a set of Rox risers. That'll be about it. I might do something about the windscreen if it's not to my liking. I've already got fog lights and a GPS and mount set up. Basically similar to what I've got on my DL 1000. Works out to around $2200.00. Should be set up pretty well for my purposes.

@Dirt_Dad: thanks for the feedback. Right now, we know the fairing can be removed on the right side, and are 90% sure you can access the bolts on the left for air filter removal. The bike is not in our shop now, but there the local Yamaha rep has one and we will try to connect with him to get a final answer on this. I can say I’m 100% confident that access is reasonable.


@klebs01: thanks, man. It is definitely one of our goals to create a symmetrical appearance with our pannier system.


@Chadx: no worries, the bars will retain their functionality. I had our designer give me a few images to illustrate some of the changes we were able to dial in before beginning production.







@MoBill: great to hear, thanks! They’ll definitely be available in black.


@DockingPilot: thanks for the feedback. Always a challenge to find a balance between form and function, but I think we’ve come to a solution that will work well.


@Martinh: we will be taking orders at the NY IMS, and it’s actually a really good idea to get yourself in line. We’re already taking pre-orders on some of our parts for the Tenere. If you’re pretty sure you want something, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to order it now online.

Concerning a highway peg, we haven’t had the chance to locate an existing one that would work, but it doesn’t mean a compatible one doesn’t exist. We are considering this issue, however.


@pinglow: we’re still finalizing that information, but will try to keep everyone here in the loop. If you want to ensure you’ll get notified, I suggest creating an AltRider account and then subscribe to the Yamaha specific product news update emails. That way you’ll only get emails about new products for this bike.

Jeremy....any idea if your luggage rack will be useable with an/or without the 'cubby' mounting bracket (as in my earlier post)?

That tweak of the upper bar looks better to my eyes, Jeremy, thanks. See, you can have form and function.
