- no dramas with the panniers,
- GPS is fine, it does vibe a bit but entirely livable for me.
- New seat is better but not perfect, I still need it higher and I need lower pegs as well
-The inlet mods have given some more oomph, the fueling is not perfect yet and it feels like it needs a muffler badly
- suspension is TERRIBLE , dont know how anyone rides it for a longtime with standard, thank god Im dropping it off to Teknik on friday arvo for the works

Cranking up the pre-load helps a bit....
(I'll have to spend some money eventually... Between the Dominators std 20yo suspension and the std Tenere, I don't know what good suspension is)

Great pics BTW
(the more the better IMO)

I know fastway f3 foot pegs have a lower setting, not sure if they fit a ten though.

Jeezus Greg, you make the Ten look like a postie bike!

Are you happy with it in general?
Better or worse than the AT?

I love mine although I wish it was a white one, and I am keen to know how you go with the new bouncy bits.

Anybody tried Ricor intiminators in the forks on a Tenere. Put them in my old DR and the current ride a xt660r (couldn't afford a Ten) and have been pretty pleased with the results.

I wish I was coming as I have some unfinished business with the Bunneryoo Gorge road to take care of (namely having a beer at my crash site)

I am attending the Volunteer Conference for the SA Ambulance this weekend down at Wirrina.
I will be heading up to Prominent Hill in a few weeks and I am thinking of riding the Ten up there. May have to drop into Roxby on the way back to try it out..... An maybe a few of your local trails

As it turns out I've loaned my Ten to a mate's lad to ride up there so we will be reunited. Yes, weather etc looks good. Leaving now - cheers.
