I wonder about that,markjenn. Just how the heck DO these Tenere brakes work? maybe I better read the manual,huh? When I started riding the Tenere I was most interested in rear brake use(locking the rear wheel WITHOUT affect the free spin of the front wheel). I've ridden it enough now in dirt to be completely satisfied. I can lock that rear without affecting the front,seems to me. I'd been down several times if it did effect the front much. Another thing, this traction control gismo. I'd never order it on a bike if I had a choice. On the other hand, I don't know a damn thing about it. Monday I was riding up to an 8500 foot peak with my wife on the back. It had snowed & was melting.Wife got nervous in the mud(it was steep) so I stopped & she got off. I took off with NO spin whatsoever. Traction & control were just super(I have the not-good-in-mud Tourances on it). I stopped on muddy steeps several times & was impressed with this bike's traction.Wonder if that traction control is turned on? Something was different--in a good sort of way. My old GS 1200 would have spun some, am pretty sure. Guess I'll read the manual this afternoon.

Good translation, Spaceman.

The last point means how sensitive the ABS is controlling.

I gotta' say, Rema... You are predictable!

But you do keep me laughing, but my God, man... Learn to *SPELL*, or at least get a spell-checker for your web browser!

As for "bashing around tirelessly on the internerds"... Well, shall we simply take a look at your post count per day as compared to mine?

And let's not forget to check the stats on your previous nom de plume - R3B...

Of course, I do have to admit you are a nerd, Rema... And I don't mind bashing you!

Regarding the pictures... Well, let's just say I'm not nearly the narcissist you are... But just for you here's some pics from my ride to Alabama and the Barber Motorsports Museum, etc.

First, a nice pic of the bridge over the Mississippi River at Vidalia, Louisiana



My Super Tenere parked at the Southern start of the Natchez Trace Parkway - Natchez, Mississippi



A stop along the Trace Parkway



Here's looking at you, Rema! Beautiful 78F degree (25.5C) day in one of the most beautiful National Parks in the South



Picture from the rider's point of view for you... And note, the speed limit on the Trace is 50 MPH, and it's heavily patrolled



A short video for you from the Natchez Trace



Met another happy Super Tenere rider - Twitch - at the Barber Museum in Alabama



Here's a better shot of the museum



Here's some of the beautiful machines inside the Museum

























Here's a Ducati *SUPERMONO* for you, Rema...



Some more wonderful machines



























Here's some vintage sidecar racers in action



There are literally thousands more (I took 2226 pictures in the museum alone...), but I better get this back to my own Super Tenere, eh?

Here it is parked at the entrance to the paddock and pits at Barber Motorsports Park



I won't bore the fellow ADVrider folks here with more pics of my bike, etc. No need.

So tell me, Rema... Where have you ridden lately? BTW, I rode back from Birmingham, Alabama straight through... 898 miles in less than 15 hours. What did you do a couple of weekends ago, Rema?

The bannings have begun. Anyone else need a reminder of how to get along in here?

I wasn't talking about you, Bill. It took me a bit to figure out what you were trying to show in that pic.

I'm not going to prune the crap. I'll leave it there so the hard heads can see what can get them in trouble.

Oh I know you weren't...LOL..."just saying" a little WTF.

And I say yeah, don't prune...then we can't see the little word "banned" under a user name.

Thanks. ADV just got awesome again. But alas...I have nothing left to add, except, you can't imagine how long it took to find that little nub buried in the dirt.

I just got rid of this 'nub' because it was interfering with the side stand operation after I installed the 'camel foot' which made the lowering of the side stand much easier... so don't worry and keep it simple without the 'nub'
Cheers,
Roberto

My god!! This is what everyone on ADV has been asking for..



Light weight,
Big wheels,
Great fuel economy.
Pretty easy to fit a long range tank.
Don't need suspension
And
It's Hybrid drive.

What is Honda waiting for. (a 25cc 100hp motor, that is what).
