I believe EricV from the Super Tenere forum, Dirty bike on ADV is on one of them.

The two up Tenere is a couple from Australia.

I have about 1300 miles on a E07 set. For me they handle very well. On or off road, dry and wet. Very limited time in the mud to comment on their performance.

I am on my way back to Texas from Alabama and 30 miles into the ride the engine coughed once and the check engine light came on. It seemed to work just fine after that so I continued riding. About 20 miles later, while sitting at a stop light the engine started surging, then died. Every time I turn it on it runs for 30 sec to a min then starts surging and dies. I have tried running it with the fuel cap open to see if it was a clogged vent line but tha doesn't make much of a difference. Any ideas, suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

A friend that has a S10 had it quit on him while riding across Arkansas on the interstate. He had it towed to the nearest Yamaha dealer and it turned out to be a clogged fuel filter, which, as I understand it, is at the fuel pump. He had over 30k miles on it and had ridden it to Alaska, so thinks he may have gotten some crap gas while on that trip. I wonder if yours may have a similar problem.

I second the fuel delivery theory - clogged filter, bum pump, etc. The fact that it will start and run for brief periods would indicate that it can deliver fuel, just not enough of it for a long enough period.

There is a few in the Iron Butt Rally, but no coverage this year, so we will never know most likely. Guys spent a lot of time and money and effort for this rally to get zilch in coverage. I'm as usual kind of pissed at the world, but dang Bob Higdons coverage of the rally this year is crap. No list of riders and bikes after 6 days? My 10 yr old grand daughter could beat that. Look at the reports on the IBA site though and get good reports on haircuts for the rally as well as a few tattoo pictures. Fricking sucks, this stuff is my bread and butter I grew up with and wait like clockwork every two years to read about the IBR. No reading this year except crap. I'm bummed about it and hope it improves, not for me as much as the riders which deserve some recognition.
Sorry, rant as usual, I'm just real, real disappointed.

Not surprised there's no coverage. Some fat old guys riding their bikes non-stop, about as exciting as watching paint dry.

Don't forget the large, owl-shaped Russell Day-long ass buckets. Never quite understood why such monotonous, Chinese water torture-like activity is so attractive to some people.

I still like the long distance sport and enjoy the readings every two years. I suppose it's not top of most guys type of rides, but it is top of mine. They had good coverage in years past, this year nothing, at least nothing worth snot.

I'm not saying it would make good TV. Or that there is a huge audience for the challenge coverage.

But count me in as someone who has an interest. I would like to know a bit about the human drama of it all. Especially since I hear there are several participants who chose the Tenere as their weapon of choice. That's gotta make some of us perk up our ears?

I'm no Iron Butt wannabe. But I get a particular satisfaction, in my old age, every time I overcome a long-day challenge. Sometimes that's 700 miles of "gotta be there TODAY". Sometimes it's simply my destination is 1500 miles away and I pick 2 wheels over 4.

Is it true Eric is running this year? Regardless of the banter he gets into around here, I would be a fan of his. Kinda cool to know somebody that's pushing the limits of what we crazy humans can accomplish.

I'm pretty sure Eric is doing it this year. I thought I spotted his Valdez tank on the back of one of those Teneres.
