To Beak or Not to Beak...

The fender thing is the only dislike I have about the bike other then the stuffy legroom, but that can be fixed with a tall custom seat. Be great if someone could point me in the right direction of that fender as I really think it completes the bike.

Even with the Beemers the Tenere is the center of attention.

When using double rear wheels independently located on each side with its own shock absorbers will it affect turning?
Here are some photos of my rig before it is modified.

For jaumev

After looking at so many KLRs I had an idea



Now I need to "find" a black one to match my hand guards.

I'm sitting by a bowl of candy put out for a party tonight just checking in, and whose the first
smartass I run into? Actually 3 of the Beemer guys are way fit. Freaks.

They need to be just in case,



My daughter was going to the gym this morning and totalled her car in a snow storm.
Spun it on the freeway, She's fine. Hope she learned a lesson about trying to be fit.

Thanks for that. I went through the thread, but it just showed that silly duck beak from europe and the dr 650 fender. I may have to just buy one and make something myself. I might add that after looking through this thread, the beakless option with a set of HIDS in that area are starting to grow on me.

I went for an extended ride on Saturday seeking out a Tenere since everybody was sold out. Finally found one down in West Virginia. I really gave it a good once over and changed the seat to the high setting. Much more room there than I had previously thought. The bikes overall quality is extremely solid and the price point is going to be a HUGE factor. I was so tempted to just get it Saturday, but I had to walk away. Just not ready to buy yet and I really want to see a WC 1200GS in person. Sure was a beaut!

Rear tires and more

Hi Mikef5000 ... the rear tire is a Metzeler Sahara Enduro 3 size 140/80/18 made in Brazil because I couldn't find a Heidenau of that same size to match my front Heidenau 90/90/21 ... unfortunately the Mitas distributor here does not bring this type of tires although the market is asking for them ... same with the Heidenau's ... awful dealers.BTW, the wheels are from Woody's Wheel Works from whoom I'm still waiting his shirt and decals ... maybe for christmas ... lol
Regarding the front beak, I ordered, installed and gave away the front beak sold by Off-the-road ... made my own support for a high fender (Yamaha chinese) and also modified the OEM fender cutting it in half ... it works ... still waiting Wasp support for its high fender and the brake hose rerouting although I have made my own ... not as brilliant but it works.


Thanks to all who have given its collaboration on making my dreams come true ... Pluric, Dallara, Tremor, BlueEyes, Bundu, etc ... if you wish to have a taste of honey then I have a special deal for January 2013 ... use my 'Black Pearl' for the whole month to chase the Dakar or ride anywhere, fully equipped with soft bags (Giant Loop), for a small fee.
