    Garmin XT heads up

    So yesterday I left home at 3pm in the rain and 45 degrees, at 1am I arrived in Kansas City and checked into a motel, a nice long hot shower warmed me up. I had updated the Zumo XT about a month ago and after the update that little red indicator that always points north had disappeared, I had...

    Garmin XT heads up

    One thing I find really annoying with every GPS is the way so many roads that normally show up on the screen just fine disappear after You install a route to follow

    Garmin XT heads up

    Have 13,000+ miles on my Zumo XT using the factory mounting system without any problems, the mount doesn’t seem as sturdy as the Zumo 595 mounting system but neither one has caused me any problems.

    Headlights out, fuse ok?

    Oil drain gasket

    I have never changed that oil gasket-washer on a Tenere. However at about 160,000 miles that washer on my Goldwing developed a small crack so I replaced it.

    Raised Fender and High Mount Fender opinions

    So far thankfully I have never needed a raised fender and I did ride my 2013 Tenere all the way to Prudehoe Bay in the rain. But yes I have seen plenty of pictures showing front fenders so packed with mud that the front wheel stopped turning.

    Another motorcycle, another new member...

    Wanted a yellow Tenere but unfortunately couldn’t get one , not something I’ve ever done before but if I had one I’d probably find someone to paint the front fender to match . I’ve always figured with a decent paint job Yamaha could have sold a lot more Tenere’s.
