Test on bike, before do the final mold and make the first fiber pièce

Ray,
Only 28 days but 9000 + kms of pure bliss. We loved the 660 tenere, perfect machine for the very rough, atrocious roads in deep Patagonia. Very stable , eats up the gravel. i thougt was a little top heavy, but quickly realized that weight was well distributed, very manoeverable . Shocks were brand new (stock). Really liked the Pirelli t60 in the back.

This info is for US riders as we do not have the opportunity to buy the tenere in USA ( Major mistake of Yamaha IMHO, it would sell like hot cakes, count me in). Of the 30 some bikers we saw, most of the germans had Teneres 660

Happy to see a couple RD 03, 1 RD04 and 2 RD07

Incidently, met Radioman on his way back from Ushuaia in Chile, he's my neighbor!!! go figure! small planet !!

long live ATs !!

our best to Chris, Ray !

Summer Down Under

Just took my AT for a back road tour of the upper South Island of New Zealand. Maruia Saddle, the Braeburn track, the Porika and finally the Rainbow Road back to Hamner. Ideal riding conditions here at the moment.

The XRV is a great bike for this kind of back roads NZ touring and the geometry and long wheel base works amazingly well even with a load. Inspirational to see so many nice Africa Twins on the thread....it took me two years looking to find mine but finally a nice one turned up. They're a superb design and often I find myself just looking at it and amazed how it good it looks as a bike IMHO.

At Boundry gate in the Rainbow.



The Matakitaki River



The NZ riders would recognise this view from Island Saddle......look at that road and tell me you don't want to ride that. Beautiful flowing corners through a timeless landscape. Everytime I complete the ride I just want to refuel and go back again.
