    Did a 450 mile loop yesterday about 50/50 on off road. It was amazing fun!

    Tenere with proper patina,

    Fun, fun day. Cleaning up his morning I did find the rear wheel nicely bent again.
    This is really getting old.:bluduh

    Doesn't look that bad in the photo. Put it in gear and it's a good one.
    Guess who's calling Woody's for the fourth time?

    Pluric,

    How would you rate the air hawk seat? Also which model do you have? It looks like it fits the Super T well.

    Thanks...

    I'm a huge fan of the Air Hawks. I seldom, if ever, ride without one. I believe that one is
    a large cruiser. It does fit the stock seat well. I've lent them to riding friends who buy their
    own after bringing it back. My last loaner never came back. This just made me think of it.

    They are really nice if you happen to ride multiple bikes. No need to buy custom seats.
    I do like mine with extra air. I ran into the reps on a ride and they set mine to what they
    thought it should be at. Didn't work for me and I put more air in right after.

    Another 'humdinger' from the 'Rimdinger.' Slow the **** down, Pluric :lol3...the rims don't strenghthen over time, or am I missing sumthin? :D Has Woody made a pitch to you about his super-strength rims yet? :ear IDK, but it seems like the OEMs can't handle your 'riding style' :evil

    Damn, Pluric...

    You gotta' quit with doing the rim jobs!!! :lol3

    Gotta' hand it to ya', though... You do take riding your S-10 seriously. What I wanna' know now is when we're gonna' see the M&M stickers on your bike from the big-bucks sponsorship deal? :evil

    Funny I was going to ask about that. It really is getting tiring to keep dealing with the wheels.

    Slow down? Why did Yamaha make a 100hp dirt bike if you can't use it???:wink::D

    Did I mention how fun the ride was? I'm still giggling about it.

    Well according to Dallara I'm giving them a "Rim Job".:dunno:lol3

    I will be calling Woody's to see what replacement options there are
    and Tabasco to get new tires.

    To think people tease me about how boating is just throwing money
    down a hole. They've never owned a Tenere.:deal

    Two weekends ago I did sink my jet boat. Bailed it out, got it off the lake
    and an hour later was back on the water. Didn't cost a dime.....yet.:wink:

    Actually, I was thinking that here is a person who enjoys working hard, playing hard, and appreciating life.

    Very nice!
