I think this is a Super Tenere?
Looks like you guys had some mud fun that day.
Nice one Bike, say, what tyres are those you have there? And are you happy with em?
And heres an "arty farty" shot of my bike
looks like a 19" moto-x rear on the front
With all the mud you guys are running, what do you think of a high mount front fender? I have seen lots of photo's of KTM 990's and V-storms with clogged front fenders and bikes on the ground!.
Half the fun is cleaning the mud off!
"Make cleaning mud off the tire your favorite"
That's the way, aha, aha, i like it ....
The blue beast is now ready for winter commutting :
I received the CalSci medium windshield and I was able to reuse the hand muffs I had on the 1150 GS.
I tested the windshield only for 20km but so far, so good.
I can ride with the vizor open and there is much less aerodynamic noise.
Olirider, that med. windscreen looks good and the one I'll get too. Do you need the side wind deflectors in warm weather also? What pannier rack is that one you have? Are those the OEM tires also and if so what brand? I wonder if Yamaha will use same brand tires/tyres in all countries .
jdpower: those are OEM luggage racks for the yamaha panniers.
Thanks for the pics. Would you be post one more pic taken from the front of the bike with you seated on the bike to see how the screen lines up with your helmet?
Well, I had the bike deivered with the deflectors. I have never tested the bike without the deflectors. I can only say that with the dflectors and the CalSci windshield the air protection is now fine for ME.
The pannier rack and the tires are OEM as delivered when new.
My tires are Bridgestone Battlewings but I think some people got Tourance in South Africa.
tdm - is that the GIVI E55? Can ya take a rear view picture? I am guessing it will not allow panniers to open from the top?
Nope, it's even so it can be delivered with either of two, the tourance or the B-TW's.
And off-corse you can alway's ask to put the disired tires on it *before* it gets pushed out of the shop, so you can just ask to get TKC's or Karoo's of Pirelli's on it, any good dealer will be happy to oblige at no cost, the bike has to be put together, so the front wheel allready is loose, and the back wheel is out in a jiffy too, actually easier than with the single sided BMW where it's a pain to keep the wheel up align the 4 or 5 holes and get the bolts in
Jonny take a look an other photo to answer to your question!Yes this is the E55 from Givi.
Hmmm, I hadn't thought of that. I'm not sure they will do it here in the USA, but it is easy to ask. For my use, I'd opt for the reg. tourances or tourance EXPs.
Hello everyone. This is my bike. It the second in RO after AndreiZ. I have already covered 6000 km an is a great bike.
Nice you revive the thread, and you've been busy making farkles too
Ok so what's the story here?
Did you forget it wasn't an MX bike or something?
It was only a simple flat tire :) Got a snail and the inner tube was burst. We did not have a repair kit or spare inner tube, so S10 went home on trailer
