    Black Hills Yamaha Super Tenere Rendezvous July 22nd - 25th, 2021 - Custer Crazy Horse Campground, Custer SD

    I'll be away from home till St. Patrick's day riding my FJR through LA, AL, GA, MS, SC and FL so please excuse me if I'm a little slow responding to questions for the next couple weeks. When I return I'll get back to work seeing who's interested in a Black Hills Tenere Rally t-shirt. Gunner...

    Black Hills Yamaha Super Tenere Rendezvous July 22nd - 25th, 2021 - Custer Crazy Horse Campground, Custer SD

    Ya, I think a guy could spend a couple weeks checking out all the trails in the Black Hills Trail system and then when you throw in all the gravel roads and a fair amount of twisty asphalt on top of it, I think you could spend a month there and not get board. It's not Colorado or Moab for...

    WTB TW 200

    I have one for a training bike at my school and love it. I've been keeping my eyes open for a good used one for myself. I sat on my hands earlier this winter when a 16 with 500 miles come up for sale. The price was very fair but it was on the other end of the state and just before Christmas...

    Black Hills Yamaha Super Tenere Rendezvous July 22nd - 25th, 2021 - Custer Crazy Horse Campground, Custer SD

    Yes there is some really cool roads for street bikes. I was just down there last fall on my Ducati 950 SP Hypermotard last fall and had a lot of fun tearing up Iron Mountain Road and Needles Hwy, Nemo Rd, Spearfish canyon road, and others. Other ideas are to ride around the Badlands national...

    From South Dakota …..

    Hey Wacked, Nice to see you'll be able to hit the Tenere get together in July and thanks for volunteering to lead some Teneres around the hills in July. That's probably my biggest about organizing the Tenere rally is not having the technical knowledge to assemble tracks or gpx files for guys...

    Black Hills Yamaha Super Tenere Rendezvous July 22nd - 25th, 2021 - Custer Crazy Horse Campground, Custer SD

    I'll have to check this out. Most of my riding in the Black hills has consisted of tearing up the asphalt on my FJR or Hypermotard or searching for the gnarliest trails on a dual sport. There is so much fun stuff to see and do in the Black Hills.

    Black Hills Yamaha Super Tenere Rendezvous July 22nd - 25th, 2021 - Custer Crazy Horse Campground, Custer SD

    By July we should have some nice black top or gravel loops GPX files for those that want to stay on the roads. I have in mind a day trip road loop out to Devils tower, a second one out to Bad Lands national park, maybe another road loop up to Sturgis, Deadwood, Lead for touristy things, and of...

    So I went to bed last night...

    Its unfortunate that a guy can't figure out if someone is trolling or is just naïve enough to ask a dumb question in the first place. Funny thing was when I seen your kerosene reference I assumed you were joking but you never know about some things you read on the internet.

    Front brake light switch/cruise issue

    I received the recall letter for my 2014 FJR but haven't seen anything on my 13 Tenere. The earliest Tenere I've seen was a 14 so I may have dodged that bullet.

    Front brake light switch/cruise issue

    I assume you guys are aware of the brake switch recall that was just issued on many Yamahas? There is some confusion which years are all included in the recall.

    boots without buckles- what do you wear

    I've also had my Sidi On Road boots for several years but they have a smoother street bike sole. What I like about the Sidi All Road boots is that they have the same lugged sole as my Sidi Adventure and Sidi Canyon boots. I personally would prefer more protection than the Sidi All Road...

    boots without buckles- what do you wear

    That one is a no brainer. Get the Sidi All Road Gore-tex boots from Performance Cycle in Englewood CO. I have the previous version called the Sidi On Road that was more of a road touring boot. They are being discontinued by Sidi and you can get this great boot for $199.99 in sizes 42, 43, 46...
