Looks like some brilliant riding.

I'll have to plan to make one of the Whitehorse trips in the next few years.

Is that an AirHawk on your bike? How's that treating you?

We took our tires down to about 28#+ and the S10 just does great, what a bike.

Suspension Bridge..

First time I've seen an S10 do a suspension bridge (a small one that is).

0:18



Cheers

Testing 21 and 18 inches offroad

Had a beautiful ride on mountains with other friends on smaller bikes (XT660,s and XR250) but the Black Pearl with its new Woody's 21 inch front (Heidenau K60 Scout 90x90x21) and 18 inch rear (Metzeler Sahara Enduro 3 140x80x18) was outstanding ... optimal handling on very bad roads ... my modified Hepco Becker (Krauser) bashplate didn´t receive any damage except the front tire rubbing the center bolt on the bashplate due to severe compression of the forks ... will fix that maybe changing the front plate and moving the bashplate 1 cm back and up.
Preparing the trip ... 7 bikes

The Black Pearl with new tires on Woody's wheels

Thanks Woody ... probably will ask for a 3.5 x 18 inch rear to mount a 150x70x18

Nice washboard ...

No problem for the Black Pearl

Sharing fuel ...

Following day with 5 riders ...

one drop because of chain problems ...

with only 4 riders ...

completing the raid ...

Cheers,
Roberto aka Thagua

Just wait until I have good internet access, right now it sucks, looks like I will have to wait until I get to Alaska

Had a wonderful ride today, got some really good video including a slight mistake that took me off the road, mind you, the road was dirt, gravel, wet and very slippery and one of the mud areas caught me but didn't crash, saved it

This was some of what we did today

Oh, forgot to mention, when I got back to the motel both forks were leaking
Yukon Yamaha is going to look into it on Thursday

I am proud to say I have joint the Tenere club. This fine example had been sitting in the showroom at a local dealer since 7/27/2011.



Yup, zero miles on the clock as well.


This is going to be fun.

Hi Goldie ... I recommend putting some fork socks to prevent the fine dust from making your seals weep ... I even use one larger one on my rear Ohlins ... BTW I am still waiting for a set of Sealmates I ordered in April ... it seems they only ship within USA ... lol
Cheers,
Roberto

FYI...a piece of 35 mm film works well too. harder to find that stuff nowadays . the sprocket holes in the edge of the film grab dirt chunks....
