    I dont even knew that this existed...

    I have seen something very similar that was real. It was a tiny trailer you pull behind your bike that folded out with a solid floor and a tent top very much like that. They were very nice but i think i will just stick with my tiny regular tent.

    The new Mitas E07 Adventure tire (tyre)

    I have a E-07 front that has lost air the whole time i have had it on the bike. Funny thing is it will never get below 25 PSI. It takes several weeks to drop that low. It handles well at that pressure and works well for me that low. I don't know the exact mileage but i have about 20,000 miles on...

Then it was frozen again last night. This morning it was 9 degrees at my house about 16 in town. nice ride to...

    What are some good motorcycle or other videos/tv series/movies to watch? Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, etc....

    My better half got the tickets and we went to see the movie on its one night showing in the theaters. A lot of adventure bikes were in the parking lot. Some weathered bikers were there too! Most were gone before the movie was half over. We stayed for the whole thing but we were both expecting...

    Valve Clearance - Motor Not Spinning on Reassembly

    I don't know if this has been suggested in any of the threads on the valve adjustments. I do not remember seeing it but I took the entire electrical panel loose off the right side of the frame pulled the wiring out of the frame that went over the motor and hinged it 90 degrees out. Zip tied it...

    Why it's a stupid decision to run street tires in the dirt

    I have a set of those bead breakers and they do work very well. I carry them on any long trip i take. Be very careful with the Tenere rims though. I had a tire that was on there for about 14000 miles and was stuck pretty good. I bent the edge of the rim out before it would push the tire off the...

    Heated gear for a Super Tenere

    I was given hot wire gloves a year ago for Christmas. I pretty much only use them below 20 degrees and they will definitely extend your riding season.

    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

    My first attempt to make a custom seat. The raised portions in the middle of the seat pan hit me right in the hip joints. I ride on the front of the seat. I put a filler between the rised sections then hot glued a very dense foam on the seat pan then hollowed out the original seat foam to fit...

I would like a different seat than the stock seat. how ever i have never seen my speed being off much at all. I am always...

    Why it's a stupid decision to run street tires in the dirt

    Wow ballisticexchris that is an impressive rack of tires you have! All of them look pretty new. I am a cheap @$$ and run mine till they look like a street tire in the middle. Cut the knobs to get them square again and then i turn them around backwards before i buy new tires. yes when i am off...

    Steering head bearing replacement

    Yamaha sells unit parts as individual parts. Guess they a ton of money that way. Try to buy a U joint for a four wheeler or side by side from Yamaha. they sell the cross part and the bearings and caps individually! It is crazy. Most aftermarket sells parts like that as a unit the with all the...

    New from Columbus, Ohio

    Hello! Very nice bike! I am not sure but i think here in KY it is a law the dealers have to provide the previous owners contact on used vehicles. I have called about trucks that i have bought. Of course who knows it may have been another sales persons number from the dealer i was at. Ha ha. Any...

It has water running through it to bring the parts up to race temp like the engine is running. then all the machine work is done so that the torque effect from assembly...

    Bike pull left, cruise control hand off.

    my 2012 seems to want to fall off to the left like that. Yes it has a lot to do with the conditions of the roads and wind. I have found though that with new tires it is much more pronounced. As the rear tire breaks in and wears some it pretty much goes away and feels much better. This is the...

    Sorry to hear you are having trouble so soon after getting the bike. That is disappointing for you i'm sure. there is a book that could be written from this forum on solving issues. It is in here if you read enough. Good luck and let us know what the problem was. After that you will enjoy the...
