I have had my S10 over a year, and have yet to go on a overnight trip with it. I have bolted a bunch of crap onto her to "make" her more road worthy, but really it was an attempt to apologize for not letting her stretch her wheels. Right after I got the super tenere, i left for a 5k ride up to Maine and back on my wr250r... but i kept thinking of the tenere. I have ridden the TETS on the small Yamaha, and thought that this big bike would be great on it... and what a chance to get to use the paniers and such. I packed up and headed out. I took the trace to the 840 bypass, and droned on 24 east for a while. Stopped and got gas, Then went across the street to the Outpost! Why? because America! thats why. and what followed me out of there? I'll never tell... My goal was to blast down towards Chattanooga and pick up the TETS there, and wrap it up to interstate 40. It turns out that it was a pretty lofty goal, but that is what I do... Plan big rides, not always ride big rides :) This was to be OK though, as i was running solo and to point was to ride and camp, and this i would accomplish. A quick visit to Uncle Jed... Then, a little while later, In the middle of nowhere, i had my first trailside repair to do on this bucket of bolts!:huh My mirror came lose! out with the tools... and the day was saved! see, riding by yourself, you have to be ready for anything!
