Installed the latest Garmin map update just last Thursday, and it *STILL* doesn't know that a Texas highway SH-130 even exists yet.

Was fun, though, to watch the poor Garmin "logic" try to figure out what to do, and where to go, to get me to my destination. Poor thing thought I was riding "off pavement" the whole time!!!

One thing is great about SH-130, Pluric... There's no *SAND*!!!

Honestly, I have no idea... Got a pair (one each side) for '06 Yamaha FJR1300 from somebody back when I had that sled. Took 'em off when I sold the bike and tossed 'em in my spares bin. When I got the S-10 I just happened to notice that the front brake master cylinder reservoir was essentially the same as the FJR's, and the RAM-ball cap fit perfectly.

My only guess is to search the FJR forums and hope somebody there still posts about 'em.

Did find this doing a quick Google search, though...

It's not the one I've got, but close enough!

That's why the Tenere has the nice tucked in smaller bags some people complain about.

Thanks!! I have one of those from MCL for my other bike, and I did look at MCL's site, but would not have thought about the FJR fitting the S10. Thanks for the tip!

I believe that is SH 130, which is a new toll road that runs parallel to I35 around Austin. It is the first of many planned roads to have the 85mph limit.

Yes, indeed as has been mentioned, it is SH-130, the entirety of which runs roughly between Seguin and Georgetown, TX, skirting the outrageously congested I-35 corridor from San Antonio through Austin and northward.

You can find out much more information here: http://mysh130.com/

And there are a bunch of highways in West Texas with 80 MPH limits, and most of those will have 85 MPH limit signs within the next year or so.

Bankhead NF in NW Alabama. No 85 mph speed limits, but it was a beautiful day!

The section of SH130 that is 85 mph is from US183 southeast of Austin to IH 10 east of Sequin. The northern part is 80 mph from 183 norht to IH 35 in Georgetown. Watch for feral hogs crossing in that sothern section. There have been several collisions at speed and one motorist death from hitting a 250 lb hog at 85 mph. Steep shoulder drop off leave little room for correcting errors in control.

I give up. I just wanted to ride the bike without all these things to remember.
Couldn't take these dreadful assaults on what's left of my manhood any more; sold my Black Tenere this weekend. Have manhood back now. Next one will be white. The blue ones suck.

It's what we don't suck is the big difference.
