I always thought marriage was the best cure for that. It's worked 3 times for me so far !

Then again, here you were talking about those "members" and your hand gettin' all sore and the joints hurtin'...

Glad you managed to "adjust"!!!

disk wear

9000 miles and definate signs of wear on front and back disks, ridge forming, 30,000 miles on TDM 900 about the same. When is the XTZ900 due?

He'll be back! It's just a little two-week "time-out".

2 weeks off for posting that pic? While it featured politicians it wasn't itself political.

Keep in mind an-unbroken in bike with high compression (I think the Tenere is around 12 to 1) will feel like a jake brake when you let off the gas, especially coming from a DR 650. That could be what is throwing you forward into the bars. I let my friends ride the Tenere and without fail they tell me, "man, I rarely had to use the brakes."
