1988 3AJ Tenere (Australia)

Hi all, been lurking around here for a while so I thought it time to post up a pic of my Tenere. I bought this bike new in 1988 and used it to commute to work as well as weekend tourer.

I was riding it less and less until in 2001 I didn't bother to re-register it. So it was stored in the back of my parents garage for about 7 years. Unfortunately this was a bad move. The bike had been exceptionally reliable until the lack of use.

When I dragged it out from under the cover and tried to start it earlier this year nothing happened. The carby was gummed up and there was nothing to do except remove it and clean the residue out.

Carby cleaned, new oil, filters, chain, sprockets, tyres and battery replaced, now the bike is back to what it was, a great, reliable and easy starting tourer.
