    Now Dave. That is noice! :clap

    But I am confused. Some of your shots should have got to the front page by now.

    Does there have to be a BMW or old POS in the shot to make it or something?

    Thanks Graham, that was one of my favorite photos from the weekend.

    Not really to worried about making the front page, lots of experienced guys there with top notch work, if I can show a photo that makes a rider feel like I did while there that's plenty. Lots more in my Ride Report, but not necessarily Tenere related.

    Not sure if brand makes a difference, but I'll always post a few here for my Tenere brethren :deal

    Cape Soya, the northernmost point in Japan. It is located on the island of Hokkaido. Holding up a Starbucks cup would have been appropriate as almost all of this 2500km trip was on tarmac. The riding was awesome nonetheless. Next trip to this area will be on Heidenau K60s, so I can tempt fate in some of the upaved areas. :-) Had to leave the helmet on in case a hasty retreat was necessary, as I wasn't sure the folks in charge would take kindly to my beast being on their landmark. ;-) Japanese people are generally more reserved and weren't doing this with their bikes until I opened the flood gates!

    I did something like this in DC with the Washington Monument in the background. The US Park Police got to me in seconds. I'd left the motor running, so it was barely enough to snap the photo, wave to the pissed off officer, and be on my way.

    I thought I would share a slideshow of my trip out west with my Tenere brothers. I hope it loaded right.
    Trip totals 13 days
    5649 miles
    1365 miles of CDR
    My brother in law was with me for most of the trip. When we got to the CDR he rode 40 miles and quit, what a wuss.
    Never count on family for a wing man. I rode the CDR from Ovando MT to Hartsel CO. It was a beautiful ride and met some nice and interesting folks along the way. Many were envious of my ride espically the British man in the Great Basin of WY. He was walking from Canada to Mexico. The pictures are not Desert Dave quality, many were shot on the run, one handed. It took me five days to ride this portion of the CDR, with the first day of 110 miles, the other four days a little over 300 each. I only camped one night at Red Rock Lakes in MT. A nice couple gave me an elk sandwich for my tank bag that was great. The other nights I was wanting a shower and bed and cooked grub. In hindsight I would slow down and enjoy the ride more but I was by myself and I get tired of my own company too. The big girl was great on this trip. She eats the slab like candy, handled the gravel and baby heads just fine. I got in alittle mud in MT but it was tacky so not to bad. I dropped her once turning around in the road (doesn't everybody) but picked it right up ( not as easy as OldGit Ray, but easy enough for a little guy).Hope you enjoy! Click the pic it should load up

    Here is my bike after the last modifications: rear moded, black painted subframe and aluminium mesh in the air intakes.
