    Nice try, but I'll bet you could crash a friggin' hovercraft in *SAND*!!! :muutt :rofl







    Well, I'm not gonna' say it...

    You did hook some nice ones, though, Pluric! :clap

    Regarding the tank bag, did you consider the "Bags Connection" ones - the City and GS - that hook into a ring mounted at the gas cap? I've got one of the City ones - complete with electrical hook-up - on mine and it's truly *TITZ*! It can't touch the tank to scratch it, yet it doesn't move around a femtometer... And it's on and off in about 3 seconds to re-fuel. Best tank bag set-up I've ever owned.

    Oh, and I'm glad to hear you're not really licking Dreamsicles and drinking that Orange Slush stuff... I hear that makes you wear gay shoes. :wink:

    Damn... Sorry to hear that. Was it "R3B/Rema Disease" or "Rick West Syndrome"? :wink:

    And hey, don't give the "too little, too late" whining! How the hell was I supposed to know you were looking for a new bag? You're almost beginning to sound like a Katoom Kupcake... :lol3

    + 1 on the Bags Connections quick lock tank bag. Very handy, and quick on and off, no tank contact scratches, and easy to drop the tank bag in the side cases of your blue S10 when visiting the fem biker bar.

    but wished you had.

    All ya' had to do was ask... But Noooooooooooooooooooo!

    Instead you decided to play "Pull My Finger" with the Bogus Katoom! Now you gotta' a tank bag with more straps than a nun's bra... :lol3

    Pretty soon you'll have so many scratches on your tank you'll probably have to paint it "Raven Black"! :jack

    I'm with ya. Conversation mixed in with pictures can be tolerated... but good lord guys... the endless rambling does get annoying. Why do I need need to get a scroll wheel just to deal with your inappropriate (for the thread) banter?

    OK...

    But let me ask you one question... How many pictures have you posted of your S-10? :hmmmmm

    Of course, I find it's pretty easy to scroll past just about anything on these boards, whether it be with desktop, laptop, or even my cell phone.... :rofl

    :lol3 :lol3 :lol3 :lol3 :lol3

    Glad you took my reply with a grain of salt, it came out harsher than I meant it. But who cares how many pictures he's posted... if anyone clicks on the 'Super Tenere Picture Thread', whether they're an owner wanting to post their latest action shot, or an interested buyer just wanting to see what we are currently doing with our bikes... isn't it reasonable that the picture thread be full of pictures?

    Not that it should really matter that much. Here's the post count for this thread.

    http://advrider.com/forums/misc.php?do=whoposted&t=592384

    I've always been on record as saying "I've never met a thread I couldn't derail".
    I enjoy seeing people and their bikes but more hearing from their comments and
    getting to know them. I may never meet any of you in real life, but I feel I know
    some of you very well.

    This thread would be 10 pages back if it relied on photos only. Especially if it depended
    on those who seem the most concerned about it.

    That's why the internet has porn. So you can look at pictures all day and not get to know anyone.:deal:lol3
