Wink Just got one.



After reading a lot about bike protections, I decided to get :

AltRider Crash Bars for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z &
AltRider Skid Plate for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT 1200Z

Any input will be appreciated.

Thanks

Let's hope not. Otherwise you're not doing it right.

Welcome Falcon

Congrats on the new bike. Picked mine up last week in white.

Waiting on my Altrider crash bars and skidplate to arrive as well. I actually went with Altrider as that is what Pluric uses, and all the cute girls say he knows what to mount.

Throwing caution to the wind I ride on terrible dirt and big, looooose gravel while wearing my Elvis cape. Have now bent in my shift lever twice from zero MPH drops, so I carry a hammer with me now to bend it back out...otherwise you travel home in first gear.

Ok, have any of you folks tried adding octane to see what, if anything, that would change?
