"The food in the hotel was free and you can eat all that you want. It’s a nice twist of hospitality having travelled so far on a bike that has now clocked up 16 665 miles. What a bike! This Super Tenere seems capable of taking everything I throw at it. I cannot make it meek. The R1 had that naughty streak and whilst not that, this bike is cheeky with it’s movements. It handles every range of surface imaginable, and, without any loss of comfort. Surely something should have snapped or come loose by now, but nothing, not a washer. We still have a very long way to go."

Eat your heart out BMW. Trolls: get back under the bridge...


I just popped over to Oilheads in Gspot.

Every other thread relates to some sort of failure.

How I love my Tenere
I've got a blue S10 on order and can't wait. That said, in the interest of throwing the BMW trolls a bone, Sanders was experiencing leaking fork seals... post 21 @; http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=694112&page=2

Considering what the bike and rider have been through already, that is incredible. My '09 800 GS had a whole bunch of warranty issues and recalls by then, and hadn't spent more than 400 miles (at most!) off pavement!

The more I read about the S10, (and I've read every page of this thread, Wasp's thread, and a couple others) the further away August gets!!

In Sanders's case I honestly think not. He is firstly a traveller (he used to cycle the world before motorcycling it) and has always seemed disinterested in the niceties of what gear and parts are "best", or even needed. In this and most other respects his way of doing things is the complete opposite of the 'Long Way Round' approach.

Yes they are... I guess either Yamaha weren't too confident their own boxes would do the job, or Touratech made a significant contribution...

BTW - this is not a stock S10 muffler - it has two outlets. Not one I've seen before, anyone know anything about it?

After the earlier discussion of the Jesse's VS Trax and other...I'm really torn.

Maybe I'll just suck it up and go Touratech. Hmmm.

It's been bashed around--the topic, but since I don't have the bike yet, it's hard not to think about it.
Hmm, If I was to do it over again I would probably fork out for the Touratech.

Yes...I did...and should again. They're all I've owned to date. It will have an HB top case...I'll look at the HB side cases again.

MoBill, we should get together and discuss the bags and ideas, I still have not decided which ones, I do like the Touratech though, but I also like the Trax on Wasp's bike, but now he says he would go for Touratech now I'm lost again but that happens a lot

On the way to Lake George for Americade this weekend

Actually we prefer it this way, but alas, you guys WON'T STAY IN YOUR FORUMS

All I know is that I will be riding my "less significant large dual sport bike" soon while you guys will be discussing broken parts, blown up headlamps, non working fuel strips/gages/whatever the crap they are and so on

Oh and don't forget to SWITCH OFF your ABS when you go downhill, I wouldn't like you guys to get hurt EVEN THOUGH THE BIKE IS SOOOO MUCH LIGHTER

Sounds like a good idea.

I'm loving the Zega Pros...and I only needed to say, "feh, only 300+ more"

Going to look again at HB Gobi's. Or other HBs...
