Just wait....Shaft drives were once considered reliable and trouble free as well..

Which company changed that perception again?

"BMW..changing people perceptions for 30 years."

Greetings all,

Just got a used Tenere. Needs tires. This is my first shaft drive. Can someone explain how to remove rear wheel and reinstall it. Owners manual doesn't say much or am I just not seeing it.

Thanks Ryan Dickensheets in Colorado.

Well done. Take it easy, but well done.

You only appreciate what you have when it is taken away from you.

And it's that much sweeter when you get it back.

I dropped by the local BMW dealer to check out the new GS and ended taking it for a 40 minute test ride. Real gem of a motor. Revs quick and pulls very hard, with enough low end torque that it will drive out of a very slow corner in 3rd gear without complaint. Power output is much greater than the S10. Obviously Yamaha's 1200cc liquid cooled twin could have been tuned to a much high spec and the power tamed with different driving modes, it's a real shame that Yamaha didn't do more in this respect. The GS sounds fantastic with a deep, throaty tone. I don't know how BMW manages to get that loud of an exhaust approved, but Yamaha goes with a muffler that sounds like a garbage disposal.

Interesting cause I rode the new GS for about the same time and sorry but the S10 beats it hands down. Ok it is quicker, has cruise and lighter but it stops there. It would be nice if the S10 was bit lighter had cruise and tweaked the engine a bit but for the money you can not beat the S10.

It started with being in the hospital for 3 months, 10 months in a wheelchair, and the last 4 months or so using custom Tenere blue leg braces and a blue carbon cane. When I went to my doctors on tuesday he said do what I feel I can and live my life. My life includes motorcycles, so here it is. I cried, I laughed, I screamed in my helmet, I thanked my wife for her support, and I thanked God for the gifts in my life. It was an incredible feeling. I cannot even express the feeling. Thank you all for continuing to encourage me and stand behind me and my goal of riding again.

I sit on the bike and put my helmet and gloves on. Fold up my cane and put it in the pannier. Lift the bike off the side stand and off I go. Knee braces and leg supports are under my riding gear. Its still painful and hard to do, but I can do it.

You can see my smile under the helmet!

Yeah, I agree the S10 is good bang for the buck but for the same money Yamaha could have tuned the motor a bit better. At the very least done away with the tuning that created a $450 surcharge to get rid of the 1-3 gear restrictions. The GS pulls like a beast in both road and dynamic modes right off the showroom floor.
