Well I tried to make them bigger, but this seems to be the size they like to upload in. It'll do I guess. Some are obviously better than others, but here they are:

It is fall for sure

I have had this bike for a couple weeks now, I am pretty amazed that it is as good as it is. I only have about 1K miles on it so still getting used to it. This is a photo taken a couple days ago, the weather is about to turn wet here so I could not waste a good sunny day.

Reply to smashed crashbar skid plate.....I am using a locally (RSA) made Rumbux crashbars. So far , so good, works like a charm. Load is spread on 8 mounting bolts and through the conveyer belt onto the motor. Before I used the converter belt I used to get a horrible clanking noise on hitting pavements or rocks. Now it's a solid thunk and bike skids over without a fuss. The weight of the bike carries it through without a change in direction. Stainless steel plate has nothing but a tiny scratch to show. The original Rumbux aluminum plate was torn and ripped after hitting its first big rock..

Super Truckene.

You are a talented fabricator. I take it your wife has decided to come on rides now???

You also will need a bumper sticker for your car that says "My other car is a Tenere"

That is crazy cool!
If that tows as good as it seems it could, OFF comes the panniers and top rack luggage.
Why carry around all that unsprung weight?

Just the wife and I burdening the suspension. Then upon arrival, setup camp and unhook the trailer. Sweet!

The only fear I have is she loves to go antiquing........something she can't normally do if we are on 2 wheels. That damn thing turns an S10 into an F150.

Your panniers, what's in 'em, your top rack luggage, etc. is all *SPRUNG* weight, Snake...

Your tire, rim, spokes, hub, etc. are unsprung weight.

Just FYI...

Looks like some great fabrication, and a great idea! Forgive me if I'm missing something, but why is it so long?
