It also has a fair bit of road dirt and grime on it, not to mention the person on the other side of it is wearing a helmet and riding boots... And one shouldn't forget to notice the odd amalgam of tie-downs, etc., as one usually finds on commercial "BMW Recovery Vehicles"...

- Looking at the Super Tenere picture provided it's pretty glaring that it's a brand new bike on its way home with the new owner... Not a speck of dirt or dust on it, what looks like a brand new set of motorcycle specific tie-downs (and are those soft hooks on there?), as well as a nice cable lock to securing the front wheel to the trailer. Then there's the carefully placed soft cloths to protect the bright, shiny bodywork - just like a new owner would do, eh? Bike and trailer are obviously in a more urban setting, and in fact, appears (from the mirror reflection) to actually be sitting in a parking lot... Not exactly a spot one would pick up a broken motorcycle.

One doesn't have to search ADVrider for more than a few seconds to find dozens of pics of busted BMW's, but I'll bet it would take some real time and effort to find any pics of a well and truly broken Super Tenere on a trailer or flatbed...

But thanks for playing!!!

Nah...

I think it hit an all-time low with the picture of Pluric's concert-going couple.

Where was that picture? I THINK that is actually my buddy's bike. Was it being towed by a green/gray Mazda suv?

I think that is from when he bought it.

I looked at all the same options as you noted. I then noticed Seat Concepts has a setup for the S10. Emialed them and noted my weight on the order form so they upgraded the density of their foam. Seat is much better than stock and better than the Sargent seat on my K bike. I will no better after this weekend's ride. But so far the value is there.

It was in WV, can't remember where exactly, other than there is a brick plant (makes bricks, duh) nearby and a Harley dealership..

Don't remember the tow vehicle, snapped it thinking I would use it sooner or later.

YMMV.

What made you not like the Corbin seat? I looked at the Russell Day Long site but they did not have anything on there site about a seat for the Super Tenere?
