By Clarks - a quality product not a cheap Chinese knock off. After checking out the detailed specs, I'm pretty sure it would be a straight in fit for the Tenere too.

Now *THAT'S* funny... I don't care who you are, or how "hard" you downshift!!!

Kind of reminds me of the old bit George Gobel did with Johnny Carson on the "Tonight Show"... (listen at 30 secs into the video):

I thought we already agreed Fins BlueCheese burger rules Port A!

As for slipper clutches, heck, my S10 is my first bike without carbs.
First with TC
First with ABS

Leave me SOMETHING to do please. :)


Actually, it's kinda funny thinking of a slipper clutch on a 150 dirt back tire.
Don't seem right. But I bet it's coming. Someday.

Oh, and Dallara, come on.

Take it easy on the young feller. I was one once. All full of wheelies and daily 2-wheel hooliganism on the public streets. (Sounds like Pluric actually) Read all the mags. Knew all the stats. My peers thought I was the man.

Those were great days.

Got a bit older. Built me a track bike. Bought some leathers. Paid an instructor.

Found out I was an idiot with a strong right wrist, but no technique. (Still rode a nice wheelie though. :) )

The better/smoother I got, the less hooligan I became on the streets. Lost rank with the squid friends. Gained rank with the wife.

Now I'm a harmless gent on a bike with a drive shaft. Go figure.

Got some gorgeous leathers hanging in the closet. I can't zip up.

And as always, Snakebitten brings us the calming voice of reason...

Without a doubt the burgers at "Fins" are the Port A standard... But the the grub at "Inferno" is pretty choice, too!

There ya' go again... Being logical and all.

The fit on my leathers depressed me so after a few years I sold mine!!!

Ya' know, Snake... I think you got Cug's apparent, uh... *errors*... pegged dead on the money. I just hope he doesn't end up dead on the pavement. Maybe one day he'll even learn just how ludicrous statements like "it likely doesn't need one as the Triple doesn't build as much compression and therefore engine braking as the big twins..." really are...

I also too often forget, sometimes it takes a long time for some folks to learn "Fast is Smooth, Smooth is Fast."

I went down to the BMW shop to try and find some genuine BMW motorrad MX slippers.

None at all. I'll have to try Kawasaki I think.

I've got the pipe already so that's done..

Should have done that, too. Instead I decided to do something more exciting and hit a deer, wrecked my Tiger, broke my wrist. Awesome. Second ride after having had surgery 11 weeks ago.
