You sure picked a great place!
I do not know how to post pics as yet but I live just 15 min away from the beach, great windy mountain roads and decent dirt roads and we never get frost and very rarely day temp lower than 20C+ north of Brisbane Queensland.
Way better motorbike riding weather than my native Sweden where I rode in several minus degrees, ice, snow, rain, slush, black ice and so forth needless to say I love the weather here!
Sounds like another great place to live. To post pics you just need to use an online photo hosting site, upload your pics there and then post the links here using the img photo button above.
You could follow this thread to learn more. Would love to see some pics. That's how I get my riding fix, through others
Yeah rub it in why don't you..
When you travel alone, you pack what you need. When you take the wife, that includes the kitchen sink :huh
Mount Jeffrau, Bardoneccia, Italy.
If you can, put a 14 tooth sprocket on the front. It wakes the bike up a lot.
Don't complain, at least your wife rides with you... impossible with mine. She doesn't like it at all...
I was thinking this bike could be great off roading with a 14 tooth sprocket, but what about in motorway?
I know... I have two bikes, but I'm thinking in a solo off road trip and because I'm not Super Tenere sized I need something smaller...
Why not get a DRZ400 or something similar in size? The XT660 still seems a bit porky for serious offroad.
I have a DRZ400-E, great bike, but its too small for a long trip.
The 660 is a good compromise. I think is the perfect dual bike. I know its a bit heavy but after riding the Super T it looks small.
Guess it all boils down to personal taste. This guy toured from Paris to Vietnam via the long way around on a Yamaha TT250R Raid.
I've got a Dakar and while it's way smaller than the S10 I still wouldn't want to take it on gnarly offroad terrain, but then again I don't have a 10th of your skills. A friend has a DRZ400S nicely setup for LD touring with a large fuel tank, headlight and good luggage capacity. For me, that would be about the biggest I'd want to take.
Yea, like you don't have any place to ride.
I know better. And I only had 2 weeks!
(This month last year. I think on this day I was having a steak with 2 gents in Corryong. They were riding an RGV500 (mint) and sweet Guzzi V7)
Dammit!! Crap. Jesus.
Yeah everything is relative.
I went to Morocco with the DRZ and was fun in the sand but really boring and unconfortable in the paved roads or good tracks. There the Tenere must be better.
I guess how it can be in the sand...
I can almost see myself there!
I have yet to have the pleasure to heft mine from the ground..how bad was it?
I've lifted mine, it was surprisingly easy because the CoG is so low. But have yet to try it on a slope with a full set of luggage.
When loaded heavily, I had to pop off the top box. Without that it was no problem.
I see nothing wrong. It got tired and is taking a nap.
