    I had a Tracer pipe modified by them and it was CRAP, I think the apprentice used it as welding practice, and, it had a Chinese muffler fitted with the optional 'acroprovic' sticker attached.

    Hard crowd ...

    This is a pretty funky take on the T7 - back to Dakar roots

    Go well with a man-bun and satchel

    The front looks somewhat like the old HPN BMW front Paris-Dakar cowlings to me... but instead with a square light in the round hole...

    the essence of hipster. Form over function.

    What happened to the fork guards?

    Testing the MT21 front and D606 rear. Worked really well, valve did not move without rimlock in rear.

    Sunday I will start my trip Brisbane- Carnarvon National park- Mission Beach- Creb track- Cape York-and then where botders will allow me, hopefully I can get into NT and do the Simpson crossing back to Queensland and back to Brisbane.

    I know tyres are hard to get at the moment but there couldn’t be a worse front on the market then an MT21
    That thing will heal and toe like you wouldn’t believe not to mention the lack of grip because of the big elephant shaped knobs.
    When we went to the narrow rear rim on two of ours we tried a few full nobbies like the 606 and it’ll spin on the rim eventually so be careful
    I run the Pirelli scorpion mid hard 140/80-18 enduro tyre and I’ve had to go to two rim locks or be careful and that’s running 22 to 26 PSI
    The standard 4.25 rim with the 140/80-18 Pirelli scorpion rally we normally use, no problem, no rim lock same pressures.

    Not a fan of the MT21.
    I use Scorpion rally front and rear.
    Now that I am unemployed I should be riding but for some reason I can't leave my LGA :dirtdog

    Thank you for the info.

    Will live with the MT21, it is better than a E09 or Karoo 3. Tested it on the weekend and the speeds I was running compared to those I will be running touring solo should be lower.

    As for the rear I will watch it, i am not running a nut or valve cap on the rear tube if she does start spinning on the rim. I run tyres at 2 bar.

    Once I get to Mareeba i might change rear if I see issues with tyre spinning. But yes I will be mind-full when accelerating on rough surfaces.

    Mates of mine have been running this combo in South Africa without issues. Also due to tyre shortages.

    Hit a tree on my 450 back in January and banged myself up bad.
    Got back on the Tenere a couple of weeks ago and struggled with the weight of the throttle return spring, anyone know if there is a lighter return spring that would require less grip strength?

    An alternative to a weaker spring is a smaller throttle drum - bonus is that it gives more fine control in the tight stuff.
