"See! I told you Raven guys it was worth the drive."
Ewwwww, I think I see a bitch slap in my future. Please tell your Homies I'm so sorry.
Hasn't anyone got any real bike stuff to talk about?
Like final drive failures?
Failing to start sorted out?
Rides. Oh that's right it's cold over there. Sorry didn't mean to be so insensitive.
Pluric has put in a good effort with the spokes, I know but...
I think I'll head over the the crush or the GS threads for a while...
Here, you are going to need this...""
I finished a whole ride without needing Woody's. Other than that I can't get the damn
thing to break. I'm about to give up. It's pouring rain, as you can tell work is sllloooowwwww
and I can't think of anything to buy. I did get the ATV's a new farkle,
That's all I've got.
Good lookin cactus.
Love me some motorbike riding!
Color, and some good-natured ribbing about it, is about the only thing to talk about when your bike never breaks, and just keeps running, running, running like a freight train!
I dunno' about anybody else's Super Tenere, but mine seems to be as reliable as the sunrise, gets smoother with each mile it runs, is as stable as a locomotive yet handles better than many a sport bike I've owned, and never seems to disappoint me.
Wonder if we could liven up the discussion over here by talking about what's the best oil to use in a bike that never seems to break?
Me ,me....Sir...Sir...Pick me...I've got one.....Pick me...
I rode my my bike home at early dusk a couple of nights ago and noticed on startup that my headlights did not come on. I rode home on my fog lights but when I arrived they were on. As I was not actually using the light from them I do not know how long they were off.
At first I thought my headlight loom had burned out.
Possibly a sticky relay ???
Oooooh a p, a pr,,hold on........Problem!! Glad I had that dictionary around hey!!
Yea probably something like that. Just a relay.
No Bus codes to dissect, no $500.00 analyzers.
Yeah give it a whack next time.
Speaking of giving it a whack... (fast forward and watch from 3:00 minute mark)
"My old grandmother used to say, anything mechanical, give it a good bash..."
Well as long as we are coming clean on disasterous Tenere failures....
Mine had the right headlight bulb stop working. I popped it out to go
match it and thought I'd see if both beams were out. Plugged it
back in and it worked fine.
So not only do these things never break they are self healing if they do.
, will that help
I've sent a PM to Rema/R3B inviting him back, will that help
It might... But how we gonna' know what new name and avatar he'll use this time?
Funny, he hangs out some on the Yamaha Super Tenere forum, but for some reason there he keeps a much lower profile and is not nearly as annoying. For the most part people just seem to ignore him.
Maybe he got tired of being banned every few days on every forum he frequented! oser
Mine recently quit working in sand. It fell down.
You may well be the first. I think, well maybe, don't alert the media just yet.
I probably shouldn't say anything...
But don'cha' know it just has to bug the "Roundel Repair Rangers" and the "My Orange Crush Lunched Bunch" when they peek in over and see literally *NO* moanin', bitchin', or complainin' about the Super Tenere. Ya' gotta' think it has to twist 'em up even more that they see few, if any, tales of woe, busted or broken pieces, high parts prices, poor warranty service, etc...
So many of those folks predicted that the big Yamaha would be beset by all the same faults and foibles by other "adventure" beasties... Yet the Super Tenere has been beset by almost nothing. Nothing major anyway. About the only thing it really *HAS* to have is a good skid plate and it's good-to-good literally anywhere without a worry. Just check the spokes from time-to-time and it seems you're golden.
Has to drive the "Propellor Pilots" and "Orange Crush Club" nuts...
What I like is how they send an occasional missionary over to try and convert us to their side.
Misery really does love company.
