Your boredom is showing in the WTF thread.

My wife would so kill me if I posted up the whole family album like you did! I'm in awe of your bravery...

Piece of cake. I don't know why everyone thinks it's so hard.

... which is way too long IMO. I've gone that long with my BADB and the oil comes out mighty black. Maybe its ok for super duper 4T synthetic, but I wasn't feeling warm and fuzzy about it.

Anyway, I just changed mine a couple weeks back. Its not too bad. For me, the crash bars and skidplate are the worst parts.

Bitches,

I have the 16th through the 24th off and want to go for a little murder-sickle ride.

Is anyone available for a ride in AZ or Southern UT? I would probably bring the 500.

Looks like a court has blocked the BLM field plan for the Richfield office citing it as taking president of OHV access over other priorities. We'll have to see what areas are affected. Most of the trails are established routes so it shouldn't be that dramatic. But nevertheless this is a clear impact to the motorized community..

Federal judge rules no off-road vehicles on Richfield BLM lands

Blue Ribbon Released this press release this morning. Pretty unfortunate. Here is the release. These are some of the areas that include Skyline Trail in western swell, down to and west and south of Hanksville.

You need to hang out in the Beasts forum more. Speculation has been going on for
quite a while.

To answer your question, show me the shaft drive.

I owned a Strom for 8 years. The Tenere made me forget it faster than a KTM
water pump failure.

the ECU reflash is a must. Total game changer in the performance end.

Stock to stock performance is similar.

The ergos are more comfortable on the Tenere. The suspension is better
and I really like a shaft drive. Off road it is heavy but has surprised me where
it's willing to go. I follow the Tenere threads and web sites. I'm not aware of
a documented failure. Mine has had a fork seal leak and the rims have bent
to the point I replaced the rear with a Woody's set up. Others have had the
headlight harness melt, fork seals and rear hub seals leak.

The 2014 model will be available with cruise control and electronic suspension
adjustment, heated grips, gear indicator.....

My Strom served it's purpose fine. Was dependable and for the money hard to
beat. Just that for a little more money....

You are going to blame the Tenere on making you forget? I like it!
