The Tenere Owners Thread

OK, all you Tenere owners post your pics here. Old or new, clean or dirty, stock or modified, lets see them.

Lets get started with mine, its a 99 XTZ 660. I brought it as a project bike and now it is almost complete. Mechanicaly the bike was OK, it just needed a tidy up and some new parts like -

New paint and decals
Tinted screen
Higher bars
Lower footpegs
Hand gaurds
Stainless steel exhaust
Excel rims (18" rear)
Stainless Heavy duty spokes
Mini indicator lights
Racetech suspension rebuild
Swingarm bearings and bushes
Tyres
Chain and sprockets
Brake pads
Clutch cable
Heaps of elbow grease fixing, cleaning or replacing minor bits and pieces

If yamaha released this bike - today - in the same spec - they'd sell every damn one - for $10k. I'd be first in line at my local (or distant) dealer to get this.
Bloody Aussies!

nice one, looks a million times better than mine.

I have those barkbusters too, the ego ones. both my levers are a bit bent and I've ordered new ones, not sure if they are going to fit to well inside the barkbusters. How are yours?

Ive got some renthal bars on mine and i don't really think they allow much room to slide the controls in towards the headstock.

Might have to find a guy who can repair and paint plastic now seeing yours.
