FWIW I raised my guard <> 20 mm to good effect.
I advise ditching the fender extender too. My one got hooked behind the bash pad (after hitting a bump at pace) and got torn off but not before cracking my mudguard (both sides)
I showed this to Karen. She replied "I wondered how long it would be before he got one of those."
We'll be there next week...... Only joking.
BTW, nice to see you back Rick and good to see you are still acting your shoe size.
Looking from N Ireland all I can see is gorgeous weather!!

In a EUR I'm size 44.
Wish I had a reason to drop by a little more often. I'm afraid my posts would read:
"Day 343 Tenere has a few more spider webs. Doesn't look like they are catching anything."
"Day 344 Tenere continues to hold coats on the handle bars."

Just took the new steed out tonight. Got to messing with all of the display settings and those are all set.
Cruise is awesome.
Doesn't feel as fast as my Roadliner but I also haven't gotten it above 5,000rpm.
Assuming it is a 4500rpm cap. Haven't checked the manual as I don't want the wife to know about the new bike.
Started playing with windshield height and setting one was very loud. Setting 2 a little smoother but loud. Would hate to get a barn door screen. We'll see.
Seat needs to go. Way too soft.
Coming from the Roadliner with its heavy duty over built parts, the S10 feels spindly. Some fatter levers will be in store. Not sure if there is a beefier shifter.
Overall, I can't wait to free up some time and get it broken in. Dying for some off-road exploration.
Don't forget some chrome and tassels. These have been very popular with the Tenere crowd as well.
I am currently shopping for a "get back" whip for my ST. I feel like it will be a major improvement.
Really! Conjecture, me thinks!
Cruisers aren't my thing but I loved the look and monster motor of the Roadliner.
Glad to be back on a dual sport or ADV bike.
Enjoy the new ride. The next time you're on it, twist the throttle a little more. It'll smoke a Roadliner.
Definitely completes the outfit . . . .
Well, I NEVER.... okay maybe once in a while.
Looks like the assless chap photo is out of circulation. Phewww.
Google still has quite profile on you . . . but of course "Pluric" is not your real name, , right Mr. Git Ray?
In my extended leasure time/cancer recovery I've been contemplating my next bike purchase.
A) 2017 Yamaha FJ09.
Price is right.
Lighter weight but almost no offroad ability.
B) 2016 Yamaha S10 60th anniversary model. Mmm.
Priced higher, of course, but great road manners.
Offroad capable but heavy as a pig.
I'll trade my Connie 14 for either once I make up my brain.
Hey, Berg. Could you expound on your modification process for us nosey f#%kers? Pour favor. G.
I did trim the extender after too.
Thanks a bunch.
Glad to hear about recovering and looking forward.
You'll simply need to ride both for at least 15 minutes and the answer will be clear as day. Especially for a lighter weight run-around on shorter trips, not needing cruise, staying on pavement, and OK living with chain maintenance, then the FJ09 will probably push your buttons. For more gravel and dirt, more cruising, more 2-up, less maintenance, you'll probably end up with the Tenere.
Thanks for the reply Wrecker, ,
Yamaha is having a Demo Day ride next weekend. I'm gonna arrive early and try and book both for rides if they have them available.
Fingers crossed I'll get on either. Will post my thoughts. Cheers, G.
