    What's a matter with you?
    Don't you KNOW it's a street bike and too heavy to do that stuff?

    :clap

    Great shots and looks like fun!

    I was following you about a month ago just East of Romney. I recall seeing your Pelicans and tool tubes with those Twisted Throttle stickers. I rode up on the V-Strom and rode back on a black Tenere that day :D

    Sounds like a very good day. Hope you'll be joining many of your fellow Tenere owners in about two weeks. http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=838918

    Global warming must have shifted its location again.

    Was 80F this morning. Heard it would be 50F by the time I get off.
    So it's on the run again.

    Nice pic. Bet you're happy to be gettin some seat time.

    Indeed, it was about time. All that time sitting around and waiting for spring only leads to buying gear and farkles :D

    But at least i have now a new can, indicator lights, rack and a selfmade cutoff rear and heatshield:

    White Teneres look the blandest stock. But look the meanest when kitted nicely. That one is sweeet.

    You need to make and sell your heat shield, it is very good looking!
    I will take one if you do.

    I have only had a chance to ride her for a few hundred miles this week but I can already tell I made the right decision buying a Tenere':clap
