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...

I actually posted this in the wrong thread! (was supposed to be in the thread about the guy considering a Uly, I was just snooping in here!)
But as such, you hit the nail on the head, and was kinda what i was curious about. I liked the idea of having service around most every corner, and parts available out the wazoo.. If my bike become seriously problematic, it will probably certainly be on the short list to replace it with. There certainly wasnt anything BAD about it, I just didnt feel at home on it, which surprised me because the ergos and looks scream big dirt bike, which i have spent 37 years on.. It kinda comes across as a better vstrom I think?

Thanks. I didn't have the clutch mod. Just had to ride it a few feet for it reset. Doh!

Yes, many ex Strom owners, me included, now have the Tenere. I liked my Strom for
what it was. I really like the Tenere for what it is above the Strom. It was a natural transition
with better suspension, balance and stability. Power wasn't that much different. It's nice as
riders that we have so many great choices out there right now.

Question

Ray -

How will your Supa10 exhaust the engine heat with those Wolfman bags so close to the fan exit??

Can the thing breathe???

(*I'm sure you've thought of this already - just seems so very close to that hot air escape area.*)

wire and straight off the battery. Just waiting for the recall now.
I cut the wire on the pump and spliced in two sae 2 prongs. then plug the 2 prong of the pump to the battery tender leads......

you can then reconnect the two 2 prongs to use in a 12V socket if needed...versatility is the plan...

You can just do what I did and install this, fused connection directly to the battery. Its also where I plug the bike into the batter tender.
