    Anyone have Tourtech crashbars? Anyone CRASHED with them?

    I dropped my bike in the driveway and they barely have a scuff. The right side cover is a bit trick to get off and on but nothing major. Thankfully no "crashes" to report on.

    SOLD 2012 Yamaha Super Tenere XTZ1200 (with cruise control) Knoxville TN

    Re: 2012 Yamaha Super Tenere XTZ1200 (with cruise control) Knoxville TN Wow, bummer no apparent interest in a nicely set up unit at a good price. Hopefully you are on to something with tax refund season being here. I might be interested in some of the other stuff if you are interested in...

    Lafayette area riders?

    Hey Chickengrease, I used to live in Brookston, nice little town. If you ever find yourself there on a Friday or Saturday night hankering a steak the fillet at the Top Notch is hard to beat for the money! TC's in Battleground has about the best breaded tenderloin around too if that interests...

    OEM grip heaters stopped working

    +1 on the broken wire. I found this thread this morning, went right to where the wire comes out of the grip molding, cut away the insulation and out popped a broken wire end. Interwebs rule! Thanks Karson! Hands were warm and toasty inside the hippo hands on the first ride of the year.

    Interstates: Love 'em or hate 'em?

    Agreed, if I'm going to blast down the big road for a day to get where I want to ride I'll even admit to rather being in my truck with the bike on the versahauler. My vacation time is short so I like getting there, being fresh to ride hard and long while there then driving back as late as...

    My new SupTen fell over! Gads!!

The crash bars did their job, bent the right passenger footpeg and scuffed the bar end. One of the things I really enjoy about owning an adv bike...

    Place holder for a sticky summary about batteries and power distribution

    Thanks, I did some more "searching" and did come up with a few discussions on the matter. It has an amazon link to the Yuasa with a few more CCA's than the stocker for around $145. I also found a board that spoke of...

    Place holder for a sticky summary about batteries and power distribution

    Doesn't seem to be much about replacement battery options on here. Mine is a 12, I've had it for two years and have never been impressed with the amount of "gusto" that it cranks over with. I'm thinking about getting a new battery in there as insurance against problems. Probably not interested...
