I used to have an 1100GS. Great touring bike -- handled great no matter how much I loaded it up -- but I got tired of the clunky shifting on my commute, the frequent valve checks and wasn't looking forward to dealing with spline lubes or changing the clutch as the miles piled on so eventually I sold it. Later I got a TDM900. It didn't handle as well as the GS but I loved the 25,000 mile valve check intervals, the smooth shifting and the V-twin feel of the motor courtesy of the 270-degree crank. Sold it when I got an offer I couldn't pass up and figured I'd make room for a Super Tenere "just in case." Fast forward a few months and a dealer had a used one in stock for a decent price. Took a test ride and pulled the trigger. To me the Super Tenere combines the best points of the GS and the TDM. Great handling, awesome motor and low maintenance.

Spring s going to be here soon so I need to get my ass in gear.


What is the most popular pannier rack option for the S10?


I need racks in place before I start on my list of baubles and bolt-ons.

Most pannier racks are proprietary. That question doesn't really make much sense unless we know what you are wanting to do with them. At least the way I'm interpreting it. Or are you asking about options to bolt to pannier racks?

http://cariboucases.com/store/?name=Home or Wolfman offer pannier racks that people have used to roll their own, or in the case of Caribou, mount their Pelican cases on, which offers a wide array of sizes.

I'm looking at getting an S10 and have been looking at this also. I suppose it depends where you will be spending your time and how strong you need the cases to be. Hepco and Becker Xplorers look good but probably not the best to take off road.

Happy Trails makes some really tough stuff and a complete rack/pannier set is reasonably priced. They tend to be slimmer shaped though, so that may not work for everyone's use.

Cogent Dynamics

Cogent is now in the Super Tenere suspension game. Rick is custom building rear shocks, re-springing and re-valving forks. All I can say is WOW what a difference they make.

i have jesse racks. they seemed the strongest and "tightest" racks on the market.



they look the nicest when the bags arent on IMHO
you can tell by how i had to bend in my altrider luggage rack how tight they can be mounted. i have about 1/4" between the blinkers and the boxes



they fit within my rumbux cage and my boxes arent small

Bags

Jesse Bags again, fit really tight and work well, also the gray is great match for the 13 titanium color, its so good it looks factory.

help with tires...

Hi guys... can anyone help me out with a doubt on which tires to use for my upcoming ROAD trip. My wife and i will cover some 8000km across Spain, Portugal and France, late this May, and i'am confused on tire choice. Most of the times i use knobbies,but now i need something with hi millage,and good road manners, How bad would be to choose K60 compared to other, more road biased tires? Do they feel the same as TKC and Karoo's, or more like Tourances etc.?
Thing is, i wanna give a chance to K60 to prove themselves as a best universal all-round tire, even if on this trip there will not be any off road riding, unless i get lost.
To make it short... Yes or no? If it's "No", then which ones?

Your help will be much,much appreciated.
