Craig turned the bike off before he did that

And it started at the other end.

Al-58 tried and failed...


So I think, with help, you get the prize

Please post pics and report.

We can compare to the Tiger that recently drowned.

Cheers
Graham

Well unfortunately I don't have any pics of the event. Too much rain, water and general mess to take the phone out of the rainsuit...

But I can take some pictures of the clean bike with new filters, plugs and oil when I pick it from the dealer.
Does that count?

Nope Sorry, No pics didn't happen.

I am glad it all turned out OK though.

Gee the Super Tenere isn't supposed to be able to do that. I heard on the neenernets that it's a big heavy road bike that would instantly self-destruct off road.

Well someone had to go pull the Multistrada out.

(GS was too easy)

At the risk of pointing out the obvious, this is page 666... Relationship to the Super Tenere? It's one evil machine. (in a good way)

In simple words, my bike drowned because of AdvRider's thread paging, obviously

In other news, the beast lives again:

who needs a GSA?

I figure the biggest difference between the S10 and the GSA is gas capacity - here's my idea to match it, AND get better weight distribution at the same time. More at http://supertenere1200.com/2011/10/31/who-needs-a-gsa/

It's just lashed together with straps for now, but if this seems viable (can anyone see why not?) it shouldn't be a drama to work up some proper attachments.

In your blog you ask for flaws, so I'll bite.

You do a hard low-side of the bike and the fuel packs either grind through or are subjected to crushing and/or twisting forces that cause them to burst. Gas sprays out and is immediately ignited by the sparks from other hard parts dragging on the asphalt.

I know you're going to say that the rotopax are rugged and such an event is unlikely, and perhaps you're right. But to me, basic fuel safety on any motor vehicle is that any tanks are mounted in a way that they are protected by the structure of the vehicle and have some basic protection from the routine impact and crushing loads likely to occur in an accident.

BTW, for one-time use in a particularly fuel-challenging situation, I've done stuff a lot worse than this from a safety standpoint. But I assume since you're boasting that your system is better than a GSA's large tank, that you anticipate your system might be used like a GSA's tank - routinely.

Only got 150 miles into a dirt road ride here in the western mtns.Snow & mud ended it. But I got 60 mpg. Yeah,60. Measured accurately. Most riding was 20 to 50 mph . Never got near that on MY GS 1200. Anybody else get that kind of mpg on a Tenere? Rode 4 hours on forest roads yesterday but haven't checked mpg yet. Don't think it used much. It denitely has more range than the standard GS I had.

I gotta agree with MarkJenn. It looks f...ing dangerous to me. If you had an extended crash bar structure with a mesh on the outside that the tanks fitted into then, maybe. But like that - not me. Good idea that needs working on perhaps.
