    Wanted: Front Wheel / RIM

    Yep. The new tire I had put on at MadBros seemed to hold air and got me home. I didn't ride much after the trip because of the weather. Then Covid hit and I didn't ride nearly as much in 2020. I had it in the back of my mind I should see about repairing it, but it seemed fine and there were...

    Wanted: Front Wheel / RIM

    Thanks Again Eric. I think they were the only ones who had one in stock. I had it shipped to my house and verified it was the correct part. It arrived and looked good so I shipped it to Woody's. I am happy that I will be able to ride the bike again soon. Oldrider, I would have gone with...

    WTB Honda TLR200

    When I got back into riding in 2010, I picked up left over 2009 TU250x. I just bought to use as a commuter and running around town. It turned out to be so much better than that. I kept finding myself taking it longish rides on 2 lane county roads. It had a real sweet spot between 55-65...

    Thanks. I ordered one. Hopefully, it is really in stock.

    Wanted: Front Wheel / RIM

    Thanks I have searched for used wheels too. I found that one prior to posting. It is in Canada and a couple of the close up photos make me think it might be a risky buy for that amount of money.

    Wanted: Front Wheel / RIM

    Do you know of a source for a front wheel or rim? I sent me wheel to Woody's Wheelworks to repair a dented edge. I sent them photos of it and was riding around on it before I sent it in and it seemed mostly fine, but apparently they gave me an optimistic quote. Apparently the hit that dented...

    Help me Keep the Super Tenere

    Every one has different preferences and different butts. May not help others, but I went with the Seat concepts seat and it seems to work well for me. I think it is important to note that it did take a couple long days in the saddle to get it broke in and to feel right. Before the seat...

    Tenere in Topeka, KS

    I have been doing good. I would like to get back to Moab someday. Just not planning much this year with the current state of things.

    Compulsive buyer wants input on Triumph 900 Rally Pro.......

    I have kind of been following the new tiger 900's. I had 15' tiger 800 XCX for a couple years. I liked it a lot, but even though that was the "off road" model (XC), It felt like the weight was too high up. Since it shared the garage with a well set up DR650, I ALWAYS took the DR650 on trips...

    Tenere in Topeka, KS

    Pretty sure I spotted a Tenere in my neighborhood shortly after 11:00am this morning. Anyone here? I have never seen another ST in the area before, so I wasn't expecting it. It wasn't until just after I waved that I realized those were Super Tenere headlights. I was also riding my ST. If...

    broken windshield

    I was able to get the winglets before I acquired the madstad bracket. I found a very noticeable improvement in airflow with the winglets alone. They also help keep rain spray off you. My first big trip I had to ride a lot in the rain and you could see a lot of the rain rolling off the bottom...

    broken windshield

    My measuring tape agrees with Tenman's. 11in. The 22" madstad is smaller/shorter than the puig touring screen, but the airflow is cleaner and I can easily adjust the 22" madstad to my liking. I am 6'1", but most of my height is in my legs.

    broken windshield

    Barn, It is my understanding that the Madstad bracket is designed to be able to use the stock windshield and any windshield that would mount to stock location. I have had stock, smaller Madstad, Puig touring screen, and larger Madstad mounted to my Madstad bracket without issues. If the...

    I Found My Next Bike

    My first bike, after a long period of not riding, was a Suzuki TU250X. When I first saw the groms and z125 pros, my first thought was. "I would rather have another TU250X!". Mine was the red with silver frame (best looking version in USA) I just bought the TU to be an around town bike...

    Moab White Rim Trail Oct 4-6

    Thanks for posting that Mak10. It is really cool to see him doing that tutorial right where we stopped. For those that were not there. The video isn't that far away where I had my incident where I needed two tire plugs and where I bashed my givi skidplate. I will try to post my skid plate...
