What are you 6 years old? I would never see the potty humor in that.

Since the bike has some down time, just ordered some Jesse 10" bags- 105L compared to the 72L I've had for years. Should cut down on some of the stuff strapped down on the back.

Whew... Color me relieved!

I came home and put the indicator on the wheel. I only had 1 spot that deviated .006" from the rest of the wheel. I consider that acceptable. You can't see the deviation with the naked eye.

You're golden...

It probably had that much error right out of the box.

I was was perusing a copy of Overland Journal and saw this:



Which attaches like this:



Now I'll admit the Tenere is a heavy bike, and having a winch (that only weighs 8 lb!) has it's merits, especially if one travels alone in remote areas, but does anybody think this is a good way to mount it? It's only got two bolts that are attached to metal, and they're pretty long to be putting much side load on...

It's like having a steering damper... You don't need it, but it looks so... so... so much like it's a Bavarian/Teutonic/Austrian mount down at the Starbucks if you hang stuff like that on it. Makes sure you get a lot of questions about what an "Adventure Rider" you are while you're having a fat-free Latte'...

It helps to be wearing some of that gear made out of whale-foreskin, though!

Only needed one once....









ATV to the rescue.

Problem is what to hook it to? Look at Jaumev's sand shots. Nothing to hook it to
and the angle would be bad for pulling a bike up.

I just remembered the other time I needed a winch set up. Manual one with a ratchet
handle saved the day.

I'm have no experience with winches, but someone else said that this mounting location was just to carry it, not to use it.
