The Automated Carrier Landing System I maintained had some Crypto stuff for trasmitting commands to the aircraft and then the data link monitor decrypted it as well. Basically put an antenna out and pluck your own commands out of the sky and feed them back into the computer to make sure nobody was sending phony commands to the aircraft. You know like nose straight up and cut throttle. We had to keep the manuals in a safe and we all had to have clearances even though that stuff was from the 60's. Hell free crypto programs on the webs was probably more sophisticated at that point.

They look to have a nice and comfy passenger seat, I'm betting it'll be as good as a GS 2 -up.

On a personal level, I've never ridden anything that can do as much as a GS fullu laden, two up. I think the GS still as the highest gvwr rating of any two wheeler available.
The primary concern for me on the big Yammy is a new, basically unproven engine. I wanna see long term usage stats on it. My boxer has 168K on it and still runs strong. It sure is nice to see the Adventure Touring field filling up with new machines though.

I doubt the Yammie engine will last as long as the tried and proven Boxer, but the Tenere has been out for quite some time overseas without a hiccup. The new little WR's have proven to be uber reliable, I'm betting the Tenere is too.

Funny, i was just look,ing up the payload spec on the yammi, I couldnt find it listed.

i do see that its a large displacement, inline 2, with a counter balancing shaft.


Looks like a pretty interesting bike, about the same weight as a GS, shaft drive, and looks like convectional bike wet clutch gear box, vs GS dry clutch and getrag gearbox.

electrical output on the tenere? im going to guess its lower than a boxer engine with the externally mounted alternator.

The wet clutch makes me . I've never been a fan of the dry clutch. I'm not sure of the electrical output but it's fine i'm sure. I dont think Yamaha cut any corners on this one.

Low electrical output- Not to worry as only a pussy on a BMW would plug all that crap in. Oh, and one DRZ owner with a tank bag full of stators.

Longevity on the engine- Not a worry for Ted, he will own it 3 years and sell it with the original oil in the case when something else catches his eye.

Seems to me that I read someplace that the alternator output on the Yammy was 950 watts.

Dry clutch is quick to change at the race track, as to why a GS would need one, I don't know.

I saw someone else going back and forth about buying it on here but too lazy to look back and see who it was. Martha is driving Charlie's new WRR.
