    Thinking about a Super T.

    gv550 nailed it. However, having owned a Chevy S10 (and the GMC Sonoma variant that was the single biggest piece of crap I ever had the misfortune of owning), I cannot in good conscience besmirch the Super Tenere in that fashion...

    Hiedenau k60 scout

    I no longer have the bike, and didn't ride much after moving to BC. The one time I did try riding the power access road to cut the corner from the Nelson road into BC, I found a long stretch of deep sand that eventually forced me to turn around.

    Hiedenau k60 scout

    The K60 was THE tire of choice here before Mitas made the E7 (original and Dakar, not the newer + version) more readily available. They are a bias ply tire, and wear like iron. For the desert southwest, they were an amazing 50/50 tire, and the only place I found their performance lacking was...

    2017 ES | Have Bike; Will Farkle; Will Ride

    Try Highway 173 out of Silverlake, heading up to the Pinnacles. It eventually turns into Arrowhead Lake Road, a nice "Cadillac" dirt road (as an old ADV rider friend of mine would call it) and takes you all the way into Hesperia.

    The most precious commodity of all--patience

    LA traffic is why I have my motorcycle endorsement...for me the commute by bike was always more relaxing than by car. Yes, I had to deal with the idiots who have no business driving, but with time, it became second nature to anticipate what was going to happen ahead, and adjust accordingly.

    Aux light wiring

    Quite a few threads here in the Electrical sub forum about aux light wiring, including where to order the pins, which is all you really need. Both halves of the connector come installed on the bike. A search on Light Wiring here should get you to the threads with the info...

    Dealerships drive me nuts.

    Which Vegas dealer is that, so I can avoid them? I’m assuming their “inspection” is their own internal process...

    Rear lights hidden behind panniers?

    Since the ones off to the sides are reflectors, I simply picked up some of the red and white reflective tape like truckers use for their trailers. Worked well on my panniers (not Bumots, but aluminum boxes nevertheless).

    Trying to get back on two wheels

    While the Drill team was all on GW, I think I saw maybe one person come in on one for skills drills! LOL

    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

    That typically comes from handling bulbs with your bare hands. Before LED took over, it was a common practice with theatrical lighting use the wrapping the bulb came in when replacing it in the fixture. The oils from your hands transfer to the glass, and cause that section to heat up faster...
