Oh, so now you tell me.

ROK straps.

If you ever make it out west I'll be glad to show you some of my favorite local rides.
Desert Dave:

Wow, some great pics. I have a place over in Mammoth Lakes but I've never been out there on a bike. I assume a lot of those types of rides are in that area as well?

Geeze mate, you musta been giving it some stick! I have almost 10,000 miles on mine, and it still has 4mm left on it - about the same as yours at 5000. Mine doesn't have chunks ripped out of it either... You need to calm down old man, take a valium or somethin'.

and it still has life. I've never had a rear tire wear this well.

10K really? That's amazing. I was so happy to get this far...wow.

I'd like to go back to Alaska. It's about 9K from my house to Prudhoe round trip.
On the Strom I had to retire in Fairbanks. Sounds like I could do it on one tire.
That would be nice.

It's cool to know of other Tenere owners in Japan. I'm up in Aomori Prefecture. The closest Super Tenere rider I've seen was in Morioka, but he was on the ohter side of the rode headed in the opposite direction

I've got a set of K60s in the garage waiting for my summer trip. Tennessee to Glacier National Park down the Continental Divide trail to Salida then back to Tennessee. In the neighborhood of six thousand or so. I'm liking the wear i'm seeing and hearing about. I'm pretty sure I can't punish tires (or front fork seals) like u Pluric. Knock on wood they get me home. I'll be taking a 19 inch tube just in case.

87 degrees today outside

Water gooood

I carry an 18 inch now. Stuff it for the rear stretch it for the front. So far I've haven't needed it. (knocking on wood)
Sounds like a nice ride you have planned.

I wasn't sure I could stretch an 18 but I'll take your word for it. That might save me from pinchin if I had to put it in the rear. Some sentences just don't sound right

You're right. If you can take an 18" in the rear you're more man than I'll ever be.

If I said I had 19 in the front I don't think I would get many believers. Well maybe millimeters....
