I know that this is blasphemous on a Tenere thread, but I wanted to say thanks for the comments and suggestions.

Two days ago, I sold my 1200GS. Less than an hour later, I saw this bike being sold an hour away and pounced like a hungry Jaguar!

I picked her up yesterday, she is by far the cleanest used bike I have ever purchased. It came with over $5500 in the exact farkles I would have wanted, a two inch thick folder with reciepts for every single service, warranty repair, farkle, original brochure and installation manuals for the farkles. The best part is that it only has 7500 miles and it is still under warranty until July of 2015! I can't wait to take it out and see how she looks with mud all over her!

I am not famous for keeping my bikes long, a Tenere may still be in my future...

Very nice. Looks like you won't want to farkle right away. Great price as well.

Nice bike and price, yet the flavor is different enough that we may see you back here again.
Enjoy & congratulations!

This option could do that and also is better for off road riding when you move backwards.
I was looking this option before I found the Touratech rack I have now, is very easy to put on and off.

So where does your son put his feet.

That half of an ALDI tank bag. ALDI have these sales that focus on certain markets every month. That is half the tank bag.

It also converts to backpack, carry case, etc. I'll find out what the actual manufacturer is for you if I can.

No I just though I would ride it around Naked for a while to see how it went. Works fine. I think it after was after I drowned the bike back in the days when everyone was convinced that's what caused the hard start. It started fine so I took it out for a ride to dry out its bits.

Blasphemy!!!

Good buy though. Now you will be sucked into the Kool Aid vortex and spend the rest of your life poor

Don't drink the coffee at the BMW dealer. I think they put stuff in it.

The plug.. I forgot the bloody plug!

Changed out the air filter element today for an oiled foam type. Reassembled the bike, put it in the shed.. went to lock the door.. then I saw the bloody rubber plug that goes in on top of the central screw in the filter body.

Anybody else leave it out?

Not going to go through all that again just to replace it.

Will it be a problem?

Any comments or suggestions or experiences welcome!

No. I just got busy with other winter projects since this cold spell will not stop!
Blinged out the Rhino with some 14 inch wheels and mudder tires.
Which, according to my son, is now "Bad Ass".

Tested it out on the front lawn with about two feet of old snow. Promply high centered and I noticed
lawn coming up as I'm trying to get it unstuck. I'll explain that to my wife in the spring.

Yes I have. I hate it when that happens. I was putting the tools away and noticed
it sitting on the bench. Did the same "Should I put it back now?" argument in my head
and voted to leave it out until the next time.

Unless you run the thing under water and mud above the airbox I can't see it hurting anything.
It just keeps dirt and moisture from sitting on top of the screw. From what I see over in the
Show me your bike thread the worst most will get in there is some car wax.
