    Do you want to be #1

    Noticed this bike at a shop here in Vegas. It is pretty rare to find a Vin#1. This is a gray 2014 model.

    New Graphics for the Tenere

    I just had installed a vinyl graphics sticker package on the Tenere. The bike was Black from the factory, and I never really liked the look. Now it's more White and Red. A local company here in Las Vegas used my bike as a prototype. The company name is AMR Racing Graphics, website...

    A cheaper rugged GPS

    I mentioned this on another thread, so I thought I would post separately here to not hijack the other thread. This is a GPS I recently purchased. ChinaVision Rage. There are a number of threads on other forums, so I am far from the first to use this. Costs about $139 or less, plus shipping. It...

    Yamaha skid plate. Sold

    I just installed a new skid plate, and have no further use the the accessory Yamaha one. The plate has about 14k miles on it, and has a lot of small pits, a few scrapes, and a few small dents. The plate mounts on/off without issue, it is not bent or warped, just well used. It looks fine on the...

    Fuel leaking

    I noticed a fuel smell the last few times I filled up. I wondered if it had anything to do with the fuel filler mod I did a couple weeks ago (punched 5-6 holes in the filler neck with an awl and hammer). I have filled the tank fuller when I top up since the mod, thought that was the source of...

    No brakes

    So I have had the Tenere about a month, was out on my first real off road ride today. 22 miles down a gravel/rocky trail and back. About half way back I suddenly notice the front brake lever comes back to the grip! Well, 3 or 4 pumps and it comes back, seems normal. Rear brake is fine. I try the...
