    2020 Triumph 900 Rally Pro

    Did a test ride on a new Rally Pro, and here is a couple of thoughts on it, coming from being on a Tenere for 7 years and 76K miles. First is of course, it is 100+ lbs lighter. The clutch is very light and shifts really smooth. The clutch pull makes the Teneres clutch feel like a Harley, I had...

    Bike for the wife

    Another new one from So. Cal

    Well, after having my assortment of Harley's, Honda's, and a BMW, I have now added a Yamaha ::013::. I have been looking for the last six months and now an owner of a matte Grey '13 Super Tenere. I have been lurking for some time on this site and others to help make my decision, and have to...
