I did find the rear (150 scout) stepping out quite a bit on wet/damp roads regardless of if I was fully loaded with gear or solo. Off road with reduced pressures they were pretty good for a compromise tyre until you hit clay. I think I might try the 140 rear next time for better dirt performance.

I do have an annoying cyclic vibration in 5th gear between 75km/h and 90km/h since putting these tires on. That must just be a coordination of engine & tire vibrations just at that point.

Well between work and life the poor Tenere has been kinda dry docked. There is a Southern
Utah ride being put together for next weekend. It's suppose to be thumper friendly.
Since the Tenere is really two thumpers it should be twice as good, right?

Anyway, there may be some fancy footwork going on and I didn't want side bags.
Had this Moto-Fizz sitting around and I think it will be the transport of choice.
These things are the best soft bag/trunk for motorcycles. Really well designed.
This only has one end extended, so they are roomy too.



Gotta hold caming gear and some food. Plenty of room. They also hold a Kolpin
gas/water tank perfect.



On a side note, here's the other reason the bikes are ignored. The ice is off the water
and it's time to get wet.

Wow, Pluric...

And I thought I was the only one who loved those MotoFizz bags!

I've got both the small (http://www.aerostich.com/motofizz-ca...ags-small.html):





And the medium (http://www.aerostich.com/medium-moto...-seat-bag.html):





And they are some of the very best motorcycle luggage I have ever owned. Those Japs are sure an ingenious bunch!

Best of all the MotoFizz bags, straps, buckles, etc. wear like iron, and the bags come with all the extras in the package. Pricey, but definitely worth every penny once you use 'em for a while.

Nice pic!

Thanks!

Another angle:


I found it in the equipment section here on the board. It's an REI kayak bag. I bought it for my dual sport, but till I get some luggage on this thing I swap it back and forth.

Many thanks!

But damn, wouldn't you know it... It is now no longer available.

Story of my life.

Had a perfect use for one or two of those! Oh, well.

Don't tell the rangers, I use the family boat for the wake. The Speedster is wake jumping
maybe a little closer than the recommended distance.

I've ridden this rig as it stands at 160kmh (GPS) on the highway. 80kmh standing up over speed humps and some very fast bumpy off road with and without a passenger. Quiet frankly I don't notice much difference as to when I'm riding along with no luggage. Just seems to feel the same??

Yamaha does say that the max speed should be 135kmh. BMW says 180kmh on the aluminum panniers for my friends GS1200. Whatever they say, common sense tells me that 160kmh is just fine. Going into the stupid zone over that.

You can still find them around, but not for the $20 special price:
