Be nice, Allan. I'll vouch for Jesse; He's a good cat.

Plus, if his new bride finds-out that he's toolin'-around in another motorcycle thread, he probably won't make it to 2014.


Jesse...

I don't get it. You guys have riding weather yet act stir crazy.

Just to keep you happy....our stateroom had it's own waterfall, sort of.



The Mrs would be happy to come paddle your ass anytime.






I'd get paddled if she caught me getting photos with my favorite ship dancer.

Ooooooooooooooooooooooo! And I'd let her, too! You done good, Pluric!


Ya' know, it's like I tell my wonderful lady, Vickie, all the time... The generosity and compassion of women never ceases to amaze me. Otherwise, why would such good ones be with us?

And I've been riding! Just rode down to the Rio Grande Valley this weekend. Had a great time, and the weather was great for the most part. Only bad thing was the wind was howling all weekend. Hell, it was blowing semi-trucks all over the road!

I do have to give a lot of credit to the KLR. Chicks just can't say no to a KLR rider.

When I need them to back off I show them a picture of a black Tenere.

So if I want relevant info on the S10 I shouldn't ask in the main S10 thread. Copy that!

But if I DO want a breakdown example of Plurics masturbatory thoughts or the standard "Read a thousand pages noob!!" response I know where to go!

Any of you smart asses going to the DV Noob Rally?

Nah... No way anybody could call somebody with a 2,600+ post count in less than 5 years, like you, a "noob"...

Most questions get answered and then some around here. My favorite response was the
difference in a chain drive over a shaft in doing a wheelie. Complete with the trigonometry
to back it up. Once in a while Dallara will get a little testy and tell someone to work on their
google fu. Normally he has great information and supplies the links to help others out.

It was warriorprincess that had the "masturbatory thoughts". I had no idea he closed his eyes
and looked at me as "an ugly old woman". Sounds a little odd, but what floats one man's boat
sinks another. I'm just glad I can help him get his buisness done. Ewwwwww.

As far as calling us "Smart asses", guilty as charged.

Now what was your next question?

I did have to do an edit on the camera. Here is the original. My zoomed in
edit was for the blue Tenere owners only.



Here is a copy for the black Tenere owners out there that may need a new
computer wallpaper. You're welcome.

If you want relevant info, you might check out the Super Tenere forum... Pluric is there too, along with most of the usual suspects, but there's a bit less banter and fewer 1000 page threads. Pluric has even been know to share relevant info! He knows a lot about wheels for example...

The DV Noob Rally looked fun, but I couldn't convince the wife to camp it, and there are only a few rooms at the Panamint Valley Resort. BTStayedThereBefore. Room prices are a tad steep, but the food prices are ridiculous. Armagosa is a better place to stay if you hotel, but it's not convenient for the event.

@Pluric - I liked your moto vaca shots better than the cruise ones. And I guess it's true what they say, KLR riders do get the pity f**#s after all.

OK, OK, you win.

1) The screen is inadequate, especially for previous riders of GSA's. That's easily fixed with a screen adjuster and a larger screen. The wind blast hits most average riders in the forehead.
2) The sump is vulnerable when doing serious off road. Get a sump guard but the Yamaha one bolts into the sump so don't get one of them. Most others are adequate or better.
3) The axles need more grease.
4) There is a low speed stumble that a few people have had problems with. Most just get used to it and ignore it. Some, me included, remortgaged the house and flashed the ECU and put on a power commander.
5) SOMETIMES the bike wont start after the ignition/starter has been turned on and off without allowing the warm up process to finish. Usually fixed by cranking with the throttle wide open. (My opinion/take on the subject and I am entitled to it.)
6) The radiator is vulnerable in the event of a tumble. Not so much the rad itself, but the fan can get pushed into the rad and either puncture it or burn itself out trying. Either get some crash bars or keep and eye on it if you fall off.

I can't think of any more at the moment. Most is personal taste. TBH, there is not much wrong with this bike. I am yet to hear of someone who has been stranded by it in nearly 3 years of ownership. The same cannot be said for BMWs or KTMs.
Oh and the reason you got berated is because all this info is already in this thread and can be found by reading it. I appreciate it is massive, but, unlike KTM and BMW, we do not have a section just for Yamaha's so there are only 2 main threads and as the bikes are basically bomb proof we nit pick about the slightest thing and light heartedly abuse each other in the mean time.

Unfortunately, the abuse and crap tends to pad the thread out a bit too much but hey, it's fun.
