Laugh Friggin' Lyin' A** Mayans...

~


Geez, here we all still are on 12/22/12... Sun shinin', planet spinnin', life still goin' on. Guess those frickin' Mayans were full of sh*t!

Time to renew all those insurance policies, I guess!

Well, then... In the spirit of our new found chances of further survival as a species I suppose I should post a pic or two of my Super Tenere someplace nice!




















Here's to another year of riding a Super Tenere!

And finally throwing away that stupid Mayan calendar...

Dallara

I've been a biker my whole life starting in the dirt, lots of street biking and long trips touring with my wife,[we rode a bike to YellowStone on our Honeymoon ] This bike has really got me excited again about riding, The best bike I have ever riden by far! I have over 40,000 miles on it and it has been totally dependable and no problems with it at all. I just checked the valves for the first time and that was a waste of time ,[ they were all spot on ] This bike can take me places that only a real dirt bike could do, and it will even take us two up to them places.
Hope to see you all on the roads next summer. Steve
You know, this single post could stand on its own for representing what the S10 is and why you might want one.

2012 was a great motorcycle adventure year for the Yanks that finally got theirs.

Thumb MotoFizz... from Aerostich.

In that picture it's a MotoFizz "Medium Camping Seat Bag" from Aerostich...

http://www.aerostich.com/medium-moto...-seat-bag.html






It's without a doubt one of the very best pieces of motorcycling kit I have ever owned. Super high quality, in both materials and workmanship. Made in Japan. It's versatile, expandable, comes with everything you need to use it properly... wonderful tie down straps and system, rain cover that actually works, shoulder strap for easier carrying off the bike, etc., etc. You can perhaps buy cheaper bags, and I have a couple of those. Those stay on the shelf these days and my MotoFizz bags are all I use on the S-10's rack. Wish I had found it first. I'd have saved myself a lot of time and trouble!

They call it a "Medium", but actually it's pretty damn *big*... Plenty big enough for me on even longer trips.

If you look in some of the other pictures you will see I also use a MotoFizz "Small Camping Seat Bag"...

http://www.aerostich.com/motofizz-ca...ags-small.html






I actually use it a lot more since it's a better size for me for shorter, solo trips. I use the bigger "Medium" on longer trips or when I have to carry something large. But the "Small" still holds a ton, and seems to be about perfect when used with the stock Yamaha side cases and my SW-Motech/Bags Connection "City" tank bag.

However, if you need really *REALLY* big, then MotoFizz does make the "Large Camping Seat Bag"...

http://www.aerostich.com/motofizz-ca...ags-large.html






Honestly, I can't imagine needing that much space, and from the listed dimensions of this "Large" one it wouldn't work well with the Yamaha side cases so I never even considered it.

I think Pluric has some MotoFizz stuff, too, so maybe he'll chime in here.

Hope this helps!

Dallara

You need the big Motofizz when the wife needs her curling iron.



Full camping load (need Dallara's suspension pieces here)

Big Fizz Fan! The best layed out soft bag I've ever seen. Side access, top access, dirty clothes
bag under the top lid, expands to huge, exterior carry straps. 10 of 10 on the user scale.
