A whole lot of "over the line" riding. I sure hope I'm not coming along in the opposite direction when these guys are out riding.

The two drain plugs on the Tenere seem like one of the (few) poorly-designed bits on the bike. They stick out way too far create a weak spot for damage to the underside of the bike. Probably they...
