And did you realize you look just like the guy in your avatar..
It's funny looking at my avatar now, that WAS a current picture in 2004 when I joined this site

Yeah the 5100 is the KLR of the DSLR world, no respect, cheap but gets the job done if you do your part

I would be interested to see any more pics that you have showing your H&B crash bars, and to hear your thoughts on them. I like them and am trying to make my mind up at the moment. Thanks.

Anyway, out of the Utah cold and quite sunburned today.
I guess as long as you have her permission??

Thanks.
Despite what others have posted I didnt need longer cables to fit 2" rox risers with stock bars. It should be noted that not all combinations of riser position/bar angle/lever angle will work and the stock bars pull back limits the positions further as the stock handgards can get close to smacking the tank on full lock. In the end to fix it more to my likeing I've risers and Pro Tapers again with stock cables/hoses and no restrictions on lock.

Snow flats Rd two up, didn't make it far before having to turn around. The sand washes were muddy and it became work not fun.


We are headed back to Utah this year for two weeks. I have unfinished business there. Only this time I'll have K60's on the bike.

But not with the Offset Block ones I posted previously. I made no cable, hydraulic hose, or wiring changes to fit them to my bike, and have ridden that way for over 20,000 miles with them installed.

BTW, please note that the 1.75" *PIVOTING* risers - http://www.roxspeedfx.com/cgi-bin/ca...parts_id=10037 - will *NOT* work either, but for different reasons. With them there is not enough room between Rox's upper clamp and the pivot bar to all the OEM Yamaha upper bar clamps to fit in there.

Hope this helps!

What's that old saying... "It's easier to ask forgiveness than it is permission."

Or have you suddenly turned all "Black Tenere" inside and gotten limp wristed?

Local river at flood stage

9 days of rain will do it. Those old piers out in the river are usually real tall and there is a boat pier on the other side of where the bikes are parked. It's under at least 10' of water right now. Good day for a January ride high mid 60's.

Tenere feels better on the dirt other than the oil pan weakness and wheelset. The GSA is much better on the road, much smoother,and is a more refined machine.'

I've had the HP2e, the GSA, 8GS, X Challenge, and X Moto and was a BMW only guy for a while. I decided to buy a class c diesel motorhome for the wife & kids and the Beemers had to go and I had to slum it () for a Super Tenere. It was hard to get used to but I really think it is a very good bike. It's a heck of a lot better than a Strom or 800gs for what I do. When I lived in VA, I had to ride 3 hours to get to any sort of dirt road and the GSA was great for the slab and twisty mountain roads. I just miss that German refinement and the feel of the boxer.

Now I live in some of the best riding in the country and have a KX250 and XR650R and the Tenere is sort of my dirt touring bike. I usually run a TKC on the front and a 605 on the rear but just tried the K60 on the rear (good). Realize that in a recent episode of delusional thinking, I was going to sell the S-10 and go into major debt for a new GSA. This recent trip to Mexico, though, has changed my mind. Prior to the trip, I put on the larger windscreen that really made a big difference in comfort.
