If those were taken while you were waiting for the tow truck, your lost keys are in the trunk.

How do you like the Scorpion Rallys, i haven't heard any opinions about them
Better than i suspected. They work better on tarmac that i expected. But they need very airpressure on gravelroads otherwise the bike is All over the Road.

Everybody knows the Super Tenere is a streetbike.

Too heavy for off-road.
Can't turn ABS off.
Gutless motor down low.

Do you have any photos or can you tell me how you attached your frame post to the Super Tenere as I had to use a weld on post on the 660?

Thanks.

Hi Tim ... the Super has 2 holes (8mm) on its frame which I threaded them to 10x1.5 mm ... the frame is thick enough (3mm) so will hold well the steel plate which is the base of the post


The post plate that is welded to the base plate is curved in such way that it clears the air box and a tube is welded on top to hold the post with a bolt ...


For your Scotts maybe you need a different setup.
Cheers,
Thagua

Added more stuff, namely a top case, steel rear rack and wind deflectors.



And if you were wondering if North Dakota is as flat as people claim, the answer is yes, it is.

Hey, looks like Holland!

Do the wind deflectors make a big difference? Do they create turbulence at higher speeds?
