http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...1&esvid=400074

So I don't care about no stinking weather. Nothing like and ole man in a onesie.

However. The Postal Service can't seem to find the front wheel to the Tenere.
The rear made it to Woody's and is done. Shipped at he same time.
Their scanner shows nothing after Salt Lake.
