Currently $191 on Amazon. I'm running mine all the time aimed to supplement the low beams. Actually totally drowns them out. And they definitely make the bike more noticeable, see people looking at them all the time.

Are these plug and play; any difference between them and the "oem" kit? I'd like to run the driving lights under the headlight and the fogs off the crash bars if that's possible.

I've never seen the OEM kit so I don't know if any differences exist. But if there were, I would think they'd be limited to the Piaa harness connector that mates with the lighting auxiliary connector on the bike. Very easy to work around.

You'd also have to buy the bracket to mount the lights under the headlight.
Just under $42 at Stadium Yamaha.

I'm using the 530 driving lights with my low beam and will probably mount Piaa 1100 leds on my engine guards to supplement the high beams.

They were new for this trip and by this point only a couple thousand miles, combination of slab, secondary, and gravel. Great all round tires and wear really well.

So Amazon has the S100 for $279 right now. Not bad. Lots of good reviews too.

I have been using the camera in my Nokia Lumia 920. It has the Nokia Purevision 12 megapixel camera and image stabilization. Amazing camera in low light. Cell phones are gettin crazy.

I also grab the iPad for a lot of shots. Easy to edit, upload to cloud, then use in a forum post.

All my OZ shots were from the seat of the S10 using the iPad. We live in amazing times.


This is a full size (unedited) picture from a cell phone:
Seriously, just point n shoot. (Poked a stick into my tractor's oil filter. Wanted to record the number quickly and go get another)

+1 on that. I still carry my Canon G11, very similar to the S95, and it has served me well over the years and taken so much offroad, wet and dust it's not even funny. In the proper light you couldn't tell the difference between that and my "A" rig. Some of my shots early in this thread were with the G11, before I got my Jessies.

On a side note, a week ago I toasted a +$1000 lens because it couldn't handle the offroad vibration . Small and robust and relatively affordable has it's merits for an adventure rider

This is about SuperTénéré pics after all.

Yup, I was wondering where yesterday's posts were till seeing this from you.

Especially when a photo is taken through the windshield of a Super Tenere.

Well, if one Tenere doesn't work, here are 4:

Oh, PUH-Leeze! If you want lots and lots of Super Tenere pictures try here:

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=yamaha+super+tenere+images

Curious... Why did you edit your original post? And tell me, honestly, what better place is there for an interested forum member who owns a Super Tenere to ask questions about a potential camera purchase than in a thread where Super Tenere owners are posting pictures?

I honestlly felt like the moderator did the right thing with cleaning up the thread, but I didn't want it to be taken offensively and start a pissing match, so I simplified the post.

IMHO: Threads are topic based depending on the title. So if you click on "show us your Teneres" and while you're exctatically browsing through the thread you come across 3 pages of camera info, it's a buzz kill and makes you wonder where it ends and get's back on track. That's all really...
