+1! Did it twice coming back from Hyder, AK. On a sunny day the glaciers are spectacular!

now 50 miles on the new Tenere

They un-crated it today....the 2 hours turned into 6....but they got it done just before closing time. I've got 50 miles on it...very conservative miles while I get used to it!! It's a BIG change from the HD Road King I've been riding!!

Here's the salesman with his arm around my wife:




And here is me...the fat guy with a VERY big grin under the helmet:

Congrats! Won't take you long to adjust to the old girl - she's fun but forgiving when you take her to the edge! Enjoy.

And it shouldn't take long to get used to the bike, either, and it also can be fun when pushed to the edge.

Not sure if any of you have seen this report from memorial weekend. It was my first attempt. I would like to do one of my upcoming continental divide ride. Feedback is welcome. I think

Good stuff,

Feedback..
More scenery. Maps, video's, special effects, menacing background music..Skanky ho's, drugs, rock and roll...

On the other hand, what happens on the road mostly stays on the road, right?

Thanks Graham

I've got my work cut out for me. I appreciate the guys who do the really good reports that little one took me over an hour. I can't imagine how long it takes for a cannonshot report.
