Good fer you guys. I'm kinda a minimalist, I want bikes pretty much stock & bulletproof dependable as I barely know a wrench from a Iphone. But finding out a air pump'll blow the fuse on a Tenere when yer WAAAY back in Idaho backroads ain't my idea of a good time. Wish I'd known. Took me a while to find & change fuses. Anyway, dependability is why I dumped my GS12 & gotta Tenere. I like bulletproof bikes that go FAST--why I gotta black one.

Did you use the accessory outlet to power the pump? If so that's the problem right there, it's only rated for light usage like charging cellphones.

I have both. Received the WASP one but decided to go a different direction. PM me if interested in either.

As I understand, EVERYBODY got mufflers that comply with the US EPA rules and it's easy to check. Look past the rear tire at your muffler and look close at the text to see if it says "EPA." It is here:

Having done the paperwork etc, they do not give a shit what it is like as long as you do not leave it in the US

One of the conditions is that you send them proof of export and keep that proof for a further 2 years.

I can relate. My wife would take the kitchen over the bedroom too. (In a non kinky way)

Ok, I have a question. I turned off my ABS by running the bike in second gear on the centerstand. After turning off the bike with the key and then restarting, the ABS light remains on. I can't get it to reset. Can anybody solve this mystery for me? Thanks

Tested a Tenere

On about a mile of Gravel road, and about 40 miles of paved twisties. I came away pretty mistified as to why I didnt like the bike better. I came away pretty unimpressed. It just didnt seem as enjoyable and you had to work harder to have fun with it.. I dunno..
Anyway, so far the Uly still has it for me!

That's why it's a good idea to demo a bike if you can. The shoe does not fit for all.
It does come across as kinda bland at first. It is not an "OMG" type bike. Most owners
like the pack horse ability, unbreakable reputation, comfortable ergos and lonnnnnggg
maintenance schedule. Dare I say it's practical?

If you have the clutch mod in place, it won't reset. Pull the fuse, off, back on, and you should be good as new...
