Hi Javier ... the artist that does this panels and everything covered in carbon fiber mat can duplicate anything in fiberglass and cover it in carbon fiber ... I usually import a part I like such as the ones made in Italy for the World Crosser Concept (rear brake caliper and drive shaft guards) and duplicate them in fiberglass ... we are also experimenting with Kevlar but for my Black Pearl I prefer carbon (Kevlar is nice but yellowish).
What I need now is the small triangle that protects the frame ... can you get it for me and I will duplicate it and send it back to you with a duplicate as a present ... I pay CIF values.
Cheers,
Roberto
PS.- The carbon protectors of the forks are made by Pro Grip.

Wow, I was there too! Well, the sister path in Pennsylvania anyway.
I hope to one day re-do it on a Tenere.

Did a 450 mile loop yesterday about 50/50 on off road. It was amazing fun!

Tenere with proper patina,



A little of this...



Some of that....



Not a ride without some....



Yours truley,



Fun, fun day. Cleaning up his morning I did find the rear wheel nicely bent again.
This is really getting old.

Doesn't look that bad in the photo. Put it in gear and it's a good one.
Guess who's calling Woody's for the fourth time?

Pluric,

How would you rate the air hawk seat? Also which model do you have? It looks like it fits the Super T well.

Thanks...

I'm a huge fan of the Air Hawks. I seldom, if ever, ride without one. I believe that one is
a large cruiser. It does fit the stock seat well. I've lent them to riding friends who buy their
own after bringing it back. My last loaner never came back. This just made me think of it.

They are really nice if you happen to ride multiple bikes. No need to buy custom seats.
I do like mine with extra air. I ran into the reps on a ride and they set mine to what they
thought it should be at. Didn't work for me and I put more air in right after.

Another 'humdinger' from the 'Rimdinger.' Slow the **** down, Pluric ...the rims don't strenghthen over time, or am I missing sumthin? Has Woody made a pitch to you about his super-strength rims yet? IDK, but it seems like the OEMs can't handle your 'riding style'

Damn, Pluric...

You gotta' quit with doing the rim jobs!!!

Gotta' hand it to ya', though... You do take riding your S-10 seriously. What I wanna' know now is when we're gonna' see the M&M stickers on your bike from the big-bucks sponsorship deal?

Funny I was going to ask about that. It really is getting tiring to keep dealing with the wheels.

Slow down? Why did Yamaha make a 100hp dirt bike if you can't use it???

Did I mention how fun the ride was? I'm still giggling about it.

Sorry, I didn't mean to turn you on.

I think I would be better on wheels than the real deal.

Well according to Dallara I'm giving them a "Rim Job".

I will be calling Woody's to see what replacement options there are
and Tabasco to get new tires.

To think people tease me about how boating is just throwing money
down a hole. They've never owned a Tenere.

Two weekends ago I did sink my jet boat. Bailed it out, got it off the lake
and an hour later was back on the water. Didn't cost a dime.....yet.
