Jaxon,

If I order tomorrow, do you think a sidestand foot can make it to San Antone by Friday or Saturday?

But then the horrible wind turbulence of the stock shield, the terrible seat, the ungodly heat of the left radiator are also faults that my bike doesn't have or I'm too dumb to notice. Probably I'm just too dumb I spose.
Ron, I am sure all these major faults only started showing up in Merka. Before the release in Merka even the spokes stayed in place. So I donlt know about the vibe thing. Like I said it's not as bad as a few other big twins I have tried.

77,000 miles

A dealer in Romney, WV has a customer who has 77,000 miles on his Tenere. Was wondering if anyone can beat that?

For the record, I believe I am going with Power Commander V with a before/after check on my local dyno. 3 hours at $80 USD per hour.

I don't know what the ECU re-flash does. I went to their website but it says nothing about bacon.

Forgot to add, the dyno shop says I need at least 500 miles on the bike before they will do a dyno tune with the PCV.

2) Where do you guys (Americans) get your Heidenau tires from ?
3) How are babies made ?
1) From what ECUnleased told me it's focused improving the lower end delivery.
Williams42 said it was an improvement. Mine should be back any day now.
AF-1 racing did my original reflash and ECUnleased said there would only be a
shipping charge.

2) Would you like me to have a set waiting for you in Salt Lake?

3) Giggle, snort, blush. Well you see, the daddy has a train and the mommy has
a tunnel. When the train goes through the tunnel......

Chris is well known and a true animal.

Nick Sanders is the nearest known. He did a single 50,000 mile ride

You just got the bike and haven't been riding for a while, so what's the rush?
The Tenere is going to change quite a bit as it breaks in, typically somewhere around 1,500 miles.

Mine kinda "shutters" under load at about 2500-3000k. Like a big single that's under load.

And no, it's not lugging.... I know the difference.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Under acceleration and when it's 'under load'
I'll get some vibes. I'm mainly referring to when it's at normal cruising speed
loping down the road. Mine is pretty smooth.

The last trade ride the KTM guy handed my bike back and stated it was "Too smooth and plush".

Didn't know there was such a thing.

Mine does the same thing.

When I posted about the ignition timing, that was the issue that I was thinking about. In my very humble opinion, it feels like the timing is off, when that's happening.
