I have to say, mine does the skippy thing too but I just accept it, have got used to it and ignore it.

As for the TCS, when I am pushing hard uphill in the twistys, its on all the time keeping me alive. Personally, I just love it. But that just me I suppose.

Not just you, me too. I run ABS and TC1 in all cases.

ABS and TC2, I like a bit of sideways

The K60's on hard pack and pea gravel certainly don't like staying in a straight line at the rear. Glad the front is different.

Sort of a win win there..

Does the Yosh point the exhaust down or straight at the turn signal?

EDIT: Never mind. I found your post on the Tenere site. Thanks for being the guinea pig!

Very nice Donkezz. Excellent accessories and I notice a little left over mud so this is no street queen. But be warned post a pic of a black bike on Advrider and someone will be along in a minute to call you a fag.

Let's just say it looks 'Fabulous'.

Nice to see Jaumev's bash plate making it to the market place.

Hello Donkeez ... excellent bike and better colour ... Black is Black ... where did you bought the plugs for the oil filling and the lower one ... mine broke because of overtightening.
