I picked the bike in None with the exhaust finished. They improve the heat protections and some minor changes, it looks great and the sound is better than before.
Mine is hand made, the production ones they are going to be melded mechanically so will be better finished.
Now they are going to start the production..
The price is 630 plus taxes (21% in Spain) and transport.
They supplied it with aluminium brackets and a system to fix the OEM blinkers. No problem to use it with the OEM panniers and passenger pegs.
They said if there is interest they could make a special offer to a group buy.

This guys make serious stuff:













Hope there is interest on it and we can convince them yo make som head pipes!!

The blog is up just fine, the link is missing the http part and therefore gets attached to the current domain (advrider), which throws a 404. Look at the link when it comes up like that and see the issue.

Bloody hell Mike.

It will take me a while to sift through that lot.

Thanks Ray

I carried on working on the Yam today. My bike being 2 1/2 years old now, I changed the coolant which had silver particles in it and also changed the brake/clutch fluid which was black (as in filthy).

The silver particles can just be seen glinting in the sunlight in this piccy. I posted this as the bits will be abrasive in the waterpump !!



I greased up everything that moved and when I took my twistgrip off I found the handlebar badly rusted. I scraped a lot off before taking the photo.

I'm in Columbus, and I've always got an available guest bedroom/bathroom. I can grill, and we can call upon the other locals to gather around the fire pit out back.
Ray,

I would suggest that you do Deal's Gap on a week day to avoid the squids who think it is a race track! As Mike alluded to there are several Tenere owners in Columbus who would be glad to make your acquaintance. Your itinereary sounds like the trip of a lifetime. I look forward to your musnings on it.

I must work a lot to have a retirement like yours

Es mi deseo que algun dia pueda ir a Espana y ver la Tierra de mis vis abuelos.
Si dios quiere, quiero que me ensenes las maravillas del sur de Espana. Los visabuelos eran de Granada.

Hola Santiago
I will love to show Granada and the south of Spain, is an incredible place, but I live in the north, in Catalunya quite far away for me (more than 1000km) but probably not so far for you if you do a trip.
If you come here I will be very happy to show this lovely area with the Pyrenees, the Costa Brava and the south of France very close

Saludos!

Mate as someone who was a good salesman, I can tell you this. Most objections are bullshit. What you are being told is not the real reason for the objection.

You need to find out why by asking your good wife questions.

My guess is that the 2 main things that concern her (and it ain't the cash) are the following:

1. You will be out on your bike all the time with your friends and I will be alone.

2. You will get killed on a motorcycle.. and i will be alone.

In my case.. i got a new KLR in 2009 and my wife got a trip to New York. (We're in Australia)

This year I get a S10 and my wife gets a trip to Europe!

The potential accident thing is something that eventually they learn to live with. Having said that I am a safe rider and do not travel over the speed limit. Sometimes on crappy roads i travel well under the speed limit. (Getting older does that to you)

And.. I don't go out on the bike every weekend.. I make sure we have time together as a couple and do things that she likes to do.

Think about the above and see how it might work for you!

Here you go. The Sierra Nevada, just outside Granada. Taken 6 weeks ago.

So...

1) Qualify the client..

Glad you didn't suffer a hard start.

When will the Super-T get cruise control?

Now Yamaha put it on the FJR (same technology), seems like it's a no-brainer to add it to the S10.
