    Just a reminder, Greg... you are going to have a deluge of orders around May from the US. Might want to reinforce the stock reserves when that time approaches. I guarantee that the adjustable windshield bracket will be extremely popular.

    Not to worry mate. They are back in stock very soon.
    Once tubes are cut they are ready to go.

    This thread is really pissing off my wife. Since I found it a couple of days ago gotta see what WASP has posted. Don't own a Tenere and none in the near future, but godamn this is a fun thread. Keep it up!!

    Better get in contact with a lawyer because your wife is gonna be really pissed off over the next few months... :rofl
    Lots of stuff on the drawing board and not enough hours in the day (with other commitments) to do it all.

    Glad you are enjoying it.

    I think she will be even more pissed off when she hears he aint bying the best pillion bike around, as soon as she hears about the smooth aeroplane acceleration, instead of the helmbanging blurting of normal bikes.

    I've got my credit card resting in the freezer until around Feb. or March when the orders will start (I think they use the same calendar down under don't they :rofl ) and maybe I can get a lot of orders in before it reaches critical mass and explodes spontaneously :kboom. So I betcha Greg will have them there brackets dealies all stocked up by then.

    I was looking for this pic of the airbox to investigate the fording height. Its a high intake, facing backwards and water cant fall to the actual throttle body intakes, all good.

    [​IMG]
    The pic shows I investigated it a bit already and this was not the deepest crossing. The bike never stumbled or missed a beat but the bodywork did catch a lot of water even throwing it over the windscreen on one crossing, The resistance against the water slowed the bike noticably.

    First notable complaint about the Super Tenere: 'when I submerge it in thousands of gallons of flowing water, it tends to go a bit slower' - Al-58 :rofl:rofl:lol3

    Well, I know if I forded a river like that, I might need to get off the bike afterwards and go back to the river and wash my undies out. I can't see me taking my beautiful new bike through something like that. I'm afraid I'd drown me baby, forget about me :evil.

    It's no big deal if you walk it ahead of time and know you and your bike's limits. Just plowing in and hoping for the best isn't too smart.

    I also find I am facing such a crossing after I'm 90 miles in and would have to turn around and retrace back to where I was four hours earlier. This tends to motivate me to take some calculated risk. I wouldn't do anything this deep just to say I did.

    Each crossing had already been crossed by a bunch of DR650s in front of me so I already had an idea of the depth and the best path across each one. Plus about 6 riders sitting there waiting to jump in and help if needed.
