Did a bit of a ride today to find this earthquake looking road:







On the way back I found a state ATV area and tore up the trails!



Eventually I manned up and shut down the TC so I could slide around, and I actually got fully airborne on more than one occasion.

This bike is freaking awesome.

Man I knew these bikes were heavy, but not that heavy. Maybe the S stand for Semi.

Yes, the the little frame guards have to be removed to fit the touratech bars.
I think the bash plate has the same fixings, it looks to me that it is the same plate with the black upper things added, but i never compared with the regular yamaha bash plate.

Here is pic of my bike from the Sierra di Cadi in Spain:
I love that edition of the S10. It's the only real alternative to the GS that i'd consider at least Yamha didn't copy the beak etc and made their own bike with it's own character!

I don't care what you ride, this 144 mile stretch should be on your bucket list of things you do while on this Earth!

I rode it last year, and I agree completely.

My favorite road ever.

great setup

Wreckchecker, great setup, I really like the way the rims look with pinstriping, thinking about doing that when the time comes.

What tires are those in the pictures?

Those are some amazing pictures by the way!

That is warm. I rode the Tenere up to my vacation home lake. It's maybe 80 and perfect out.
I bug tested the Altrider skid plate on the way up. So far the bugs lost.
