Well we pulled the forks back off my Old XL today to see if the springs where shimmed. Nope but that had something in the for oil that we still haven't got a clue what it was. it was green it stunk and it took all the grim i had on my hands from working on my tractor off and didn't leave a oil residue behind.

needless to say we washed the forks out and refilled the forks with fresh oil. we didn't find anything else wrong but we didn't fix the wobble. but we did decide that if I go ahead with the mod of the XR rear swingarm it should fix it.

why's this you might ask. well that will add at lest 3 inches to the wheel base. making it more stable. Can i get this done before the rally ... no. I'll just have to liment my speed at the rally to below the wobble.

Very nice Rob. The Tiger is so much better looking than the S-10, IMHO.

David, Triumph is making a 1200 Tiger with a shaft drive. I think it would fit you perfect.

I didn't know the current configuration of the s-10 had been around long enough to be considered legendary. Is that the same thing as being a self proclaimed king?Maybe a legend in your own mind?

I'm not real crazy about the 1200. It's a little too sporty for me. Maybe I'll come around. I am thinking about changing up my stable a little bit though.

Let me just say that my last bike was not a cruiser. I am legend where u been oh you just started riding. Tenere name is Dakar proven. I know you BMW types have a problem with that. I'll put my bike(s) and me up against you any time. In fact I took your bait on purpose been looking for this, anytime big fellow. I talk the talk and I can walk that walk. Bring it!!

Is anybody showing off a new bike? Any fixes? Farkles (God I hate that word...)?

Didn't think so.

I just spent the last hour trying to get the very nice Rox bar risers that Supah put on the Tiger to fit the Wee. I don't plan on taking the Tiger off pavement, so I don't have any need to stand for any length of time. Plus the bar risers were tweaking on the clutch cable on the Tiger a bit much for my liking.

Alas, they are too tall for the Wee. The damn cable for the headlight switch/turnsignal cluster would not allow it. There is just not enough slack. Shame too, as the position of the bars was perfect for standing. I just would not have been able to turn.

Now back to your regularly scheduled GS/S10 pissing match.

What is your problem? Bait? My comment to Rob didn't concern you and you felt the need to interject your bikes greatness. That doesn't surprise me though, you've been doing that since you ordered it. Since you've made our conversation your business; Rob and I talked about S-10's and Tigers before and during the purchase of his Tiger. I simply responded to pictures that he posted, that I liked the looks of his bike more than the S-10.

I didn't talk bad about about your bike. I'm sure it's a great bike. I personally don't like it but I've never publicly bashed it. Tenere is Dakar proven and Yamaha makes great bikes. I've never disputed that.

I didn't know I was a "BMW type". I've owned a BMW for about a year now but I've never thought of it as the end all, be all bike. In fact, I've been thinking about selling it and moving on to something else. I've never thought MY bike was greatest ever created. Unlike some people on here.

Are you trying to challenge me to something? Do you have something to prove? Do you have short man syndrome and have an issue with me because I'm tall?

If you are trying to tell me that you are a better rider than me, I really don't care if you are. I do just fine riding where and when I want.
How you ride, what you ride, where you ride, means nothing to me. You mean nothing to me. I don't know you and don't care to know you. You've got a serious problem and I don't think it's me.
