No, No, No!
Here’s the real deal.
Yellow springs = Vingage Yamaha Racing Color combined with Current Yamaha Racing Color = Fastest Tenere on the planet.

Red springs = a poor combination of Honda & Yamaha colors = Very slow Tenere (for those who do not like to, want to, or can ride over 55 mph.

FFS don't tell Pluric, he'll have the state troopers turn me back at the Utah border . I'll sneak it in and see if he notices.

Here is what I came up with. $3 worth of 1/8"x1/2"x36" cut down to two 8" braces:







Going camping off of the bike this weekend; report to follow!

That looks very effective.

Here is what I built to do the same thing plus hold my GPS.

First I made a templet.



From the templet I made the (two) brackets.



After the brackets were made (and powder coated) I clamped it to the bike (using a 3/8” bolt as a locator) and drilled the mounting holes.



Mounting hardware and the 3/8” locating bolt.



Right side mounted.



Left side mounted.


The hole on very the top of the mount I will put a cross bar that will hold my GPS. End result is I have a dual purpose bike with a dual purpose bracket. It stiffens the wind screen mount and holds my GPS.
Because of my metal inventory, and my contacts, my cost on this project was $00.00.

Looks like some kind of marital aid I've not seen before.
You know what they say "Once you've had black...."

I see you recycle your Depends to cushion your sex toys. Great idea.

That is a good idea about the recycled Depends.

So, the "Once you've had black...." thing....does that apply to the bike or ....... Nah never mind.... horrible thoughts

The "Depends" thing took a while to figure . Its a Yank thing obviously

Very cool! Great idea

After my weekend ride, the two braces performed great. I honestly didn't pay much attention to them, I guess that was due to my Montana not flopping around like before...
