    Little Blue Adventures

    Great photos! I ride a wr250r as my second bike to the S10, and absolutely love it. How do the trial type tires do in the mud?

    The next chapter...KTM Super Adventure S

    Nice looking Jesse's. I have the same ones on my Tenere, and they have survived multiple hard crashes as well. Just bend 'em back in shape and hit the road!

    Long Way Up, anyone else watch it?

    I thought it was a good adventure story. They faced unique challenges, and it was interesting to see the flexibility necessary to overcome obstacles.

    Wheel Bearings

    My front wheel bearing failed at 25k miles. My rear bearing exploded at 45k miles destroying the entire hub. I've never pressure washed it, never submerged the hubs, but I do ride in the rain. The other factor is I ride 2-up a great deal with camping gear. I will replace mine every 25k miles...

    Aerostich R3

    I agree! I finally got my 'Stich a year ago and wish I would have gotten it sooner. This is a highly refined piece of equipment with all the right pockets, vents, and comfort. I wear my Roadcrafter from 20 degrees to over 100 - all season long.

    Just hit 70,000 miles, and soliciting maintenance opinions

    Need expert help!

    Hub, rotor, speed sensor housing, bearings, and a few other things I can't remember. The dealership said two ball bearings came out.

    Need expert help!

    My Yamaha dealer replaced my rear tire, and when re-installing the wheel they did not install it properly. The mistake they made was they did not align the tabs on the speed sensor housing. The bike was fine for 1500 miles, but the first time I activated ABS, the wheel made a grinding noise...

    The new Mitas E07 Adventure tire (tyre)

    I sure miss the original Mitas E07 (non-Dakar in my case). It was excellent on wet and dry pavement and very good on gravel roads. I got 8K miles on the rear. I only got 5K miles on the E07+. The MotoZ Tractionator got good mileage (12K miles), but it "stepped out" on wet pavement. Now I am...
