Seems like a waste of light. The blue ones are faster than light so it would
just be out running it all the time. Duh.

Will be running through the OEM aux plug, with a Skene IQ-175 dimmer.

I'm reluctant to give any light specs yet because they're a trial run. I'm not even sure if the dimmer will work with them yet. Got them from a (semi)local 4x4/overland style shop. If they work, we'll all have a great source of affordable light! If not, well....they 'look' cool.

MikeNewAdventure: Around the world on 2wheels.

Hello my name is Mike, I enjoy riding motorcycles, I have been riding since I was 18. I love the out doors, meeting new people, and experiencing new cultures.
Now I'm going to go around the world, on my new Yamaha Super Ténéré. I love to travel, I have been to 11 countries, and lived in 3 of them.
So now is time for me, to see this beautiful world on the back of my motorcycle.
If all goes well, I will start my ADVENTURE in May. So here are some photos of my motorcycle, and I.


This is the things, I have done to get my motorcycle ready for my adventure.
Anyone with any good tips, welcome to let me know.
Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you all.


You can see more photos on my facebook at www.facebook.com/mike.newadventure

OK man Jajajajaj any way I am jealous. Get you ass to Bogotá and we will tune up that bike, if we have time after we ride a bit around and we get out of the trouble that we may get. You are welcome. Also for logistics and other issues from here to Ecuador and Peru we have fresh info. Won't complain

Everytime I see that pic, the nosedive Tenere, it takes a few seconds to get my head around it.



So, since you know him, how's the bike? Did it recover 100%?
