Sounds like a very good day. Hope you'll be joining many of your fellow Tenere owners in about two weeks. http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=838918

Global warming must have shifted its location again.

Was 80F this morning. Heard it would be 50F by the time I get off.
So it's on the run again.

Nice pic. Bet you're happy to be gettin some seat time.

Indeed, it was about time. All that time sitting around and waiting for spring only leads to buying gear and farkles

But at least i have now a new can, indicator lights, rack and a selfmade cutoff rear and heatshield:

White Teneres look the blandest stock. But look the meanest when kitted nicely. That one is sweeet.

I know people say the TT crash bars arent strong but damn they look good. I think for the super light off road I will do they will fit the bill.

I just love them.

You need to make and sell your heat shield, it is very good looking!
I will take one if you do.

I have only had a chance to ride her for a few hundred miles this week but I can already tell I made the right decision buying a Tenere'

Jaumev's bike seems to be still running, if they work for him they will do it for me i figured :-D

And they look good and are made of unpainted stainless steel, so small scratches are no issue.
