Ray, speedy recovery to Karen. She has to be pretty tough. She puts up with you, right? Take care.

super tenere world crosser

noticed that on the yamaha website the weight of the world crosser is less than the weight of the regular tenere. Not sure how this can be considering the world crosser has a bunch of extras on it. Anyone have any ideas? I can't believe the carbon fiber body panels would take that much weight of it to make that big of a difference from 265 kgs to 261kgs, plus the all the other extra stuff added on to it on top of that. I guess its a kit, anyone have it?

Might want to take another look...

http://www.yamaha-motor.eu/eu/produc...&pmc=xtz1200wc

If you'll notice, the 2014 "standard" Super Tenere weighs 257 Kg, while the new 2014 "E" model - the one with the electronic suspension, cruise control, etc. - is the one that weighs 265 Kg. Both the 2013 and 2014 "Worldcrosser" models show a claimed weight of 261 Kg...

Which means they both weight 4 Kg *MORE* than a "standard" 2014 Super Tenere, but 4 Kg *LESS* than only the decked-out, ESA-equipped, etc. "E" model. Apparently all that wonderful "Worldcrosser" kit only *ADDS* weight to the "standard", and that the servo motors, electronic suspension control unit, etc. *ADDS* even more weight on top of that.

Just FYI...

Yeah, bit the above suggests he hasn't given up yet, he wants a return match.....



Good news is, boss had another x-ray today and she is well on the mend.

I have to say, Nicaragua, for a 3rd world country, the medical facilities
put us 1st worlders to shame. Same skill, little equipment but 1st class service and with a smile too. And here's the best bit. All free.

We did not have an appointment for the follow up. Just went in, got the x-ray within 3 minutes and the Orthopedic doctor looked at the x-ray within 1/2 an hour.

Fantastic. Nuff said.

I've had to take people to hospitals in mainland China, Thailand, and Columbia. Stopped in a jungle clinic in Cameroon that was run by a Frenchie and had to see military corpsmen in the middle of freakin' nowhere.

But I've seen the same thing you mentioned, time after time.

In the last days of Eastern Airlines, their airplanes were downright disgusting. Despite the soggy/springy floor boards, deferred maintenance tags all over the cockpit, and other issues, they had one of their safest periods. I'm convinced it was because the people on point knew that it was all down to them as individuals, that they HAD to care, and be on their game.


Even so, to me MedJet's repatriation insurance is still cheap for the coverage it provides when away from home.

Outstanding!!!

That really is wonderful to hear. I was back down in Harlingen this past weekend, Ray, and Vickie took one look at the x-ray pics on your blog and was ready to haul some orthopedic docs down there from the hospital she's currently at. Glad to hear it won't be necessary and that Karen's getting such good care.

Funny, too... How all us "1st worlders" often think it's the high-tech gear that's a sign of good medical care. All too easy to forget it's the doctors and nurses that make the difference, not the machines. Sounds like you got some of the best, regardless of nationality.

Again, tell Karen we're thinking of you both. Don't forget, you can always just come on back to South Texas - by boat, plane, bike, bus, truck, whatever - and we'd love to have you guys here while she recuperates!

Dallara & Vickie

Thinking of a buying BMW R1200GS LC

Well guys that's it. I'm thinking of buying a BMW LC.

I mean the Super Tenere is boring. Nuff said.

The guys over at the R1200GS LC hangout are just simply having more drama. No endless days searching for a real problems
They are fully occupied and in the zone. No such thing as boredom over there. Their lives are full.
Lawyers, class actions, spawning new problem threads, you name it.

It's an adrenalin rush. What can I say.

Maybe I'll hold of for the new 2014 S10 model and see if we can get some switch gear problems or maybe the new suspension with throw some D.E.S, I mean Y.E.S. errors or maybe it will get chopper syndrome, but I don't like the chances.

Wow 101 pages of complaints in the 1200gs-wc thread. The amazing thing is people still line up to buy it. The thread was started in May of this year. Crazy
