Hey guy's I'm back.
After having to give up the Adventure riding due to major back problems and a bout with lung cancer.
I had to stick to the roads for a while.
The lung is gone the back is better now and back in the saddle.
Picking up my bike this week.
I am on the yanahasupertenere forum also as " bacon "

Wow! That's incredible!

I broke my back in 1983, and then re-injured it twice more in the late '80's, and my Mom had lung cancer, so I have at least some small idea of what you've had to endure. You gotta' be tougher than Batman and braver than Dick Tracy!

Truly an inspiration... Thanks!

And great to have you back!!!

Dallara

Welcome back Bacon and WOW.
Love your attitude on not just giving up.

As for the rest, I thought you'd get a chuckle out of our stopping to replace a broken intercom part at a Harley dealer this weekend. A concerned guy working there just had to tell us that the Tenere foot pegs are a problem. It seems that the rubber insert falls out and the serrated peg will just EAT your boots.


He read it somewhere on the internet, so it has to be true. Right?


We just laughed...

ECUnleashed will reflash the ECU; I haven't had mine done yet but it's widely considered the best $450 you can spend on your T.


ohh i forgot one thing i thought was a liitle bit to heavy was the clutch is that going o be easy to fix?
My clutch is fairly stiff too...no idea if it can be "fixed".

That's why I put floorboards and a heel-toe shifter on mine.

Did the seat angle mod and installed Rox Pro-Offset Block Risers over the weekend. Haven't had a chance to take a long ride but around town and commuting there's a noted improvement.

I got a quote on a raven super ten, $11,900 + tax @ 7.8 % = 12,828 or so out the door plus I'd imagne some WA state title tranfer fees and whatnot.

dealer rode it about 20 miles - selling as a demo unit.


good?

That's a better deal than I got (and I got a good one). Jump on it. But check to see when the dealer put the bike in service as it will affect the warranty date. I lost 4 mo on mine but wasn't concerned as I'd already planned on getting the Y.E.S. plan before it expired.

Or you could go pick this one up with a few farkles and the Y.E.S. paid for already (and still pay the WA taxes): http://miami.craigslist.org/mdc/mcy/3218839263.html
