The Tale of Two Teneres

Thought I'd post a pic of the old and the new. Bought the XTZ from a fellow ADV'r (Chris if you happen to be lurking, the old girl is going well).
She's a '96 model with some 60000 Klm's on the clock. Hasn't had a lot done to her but boy she goes.
Difference between the two? Well the XT is more refined obviously. Haven't run the XT in properly yet so it is yet to be put to the test, but I suspect the XTZ will not embarrass itself

Another option is to look for a second hand screen/crash damged and cut that and test it?

If it works cut your good screen then?


WIBO as a trial I did a bit of both. I had an old screen in the shed which I attacked with an angle grinder ( thanks flickit, it did melt more than cut ) and then stuck it to the existing screen about 10 cm higher. The result= happy rider. Vibrating helmet gone. So for now I think the extension maybe the way to go. See pic, I think I might go into production, definite seller!

Pyrenees look like fun. Though all the push bikes around at the moment could be an issue

Dude! Have you had any calls on your XT? I have sent 2 guys your way who want one.

I was getting a tyre at 'Fun n Fast' in St Johns the other day. Scott, the owner says "we had a guy pass through here on one of them a few years ago"....... And so the story was told lol.

Lots of people having problems at the moment, The website has been down and they have possibly buggered off on holiday without telling anyone. Best bet is to call them, +49 (0) 221-768056-0.

I'm thinking to have touratech panniers, but cannot decide between the 38 - 45 liter version.
Both are for the same money and the weight difference is quite minimal. For these reason Iwould like to buy the bigger, but I fear that the bigger is too wide (may look too big for this bike and may ruin the cornering abilities onroad)
Does anybody has pictures with the biggest touratech panniers on the bike to check? Or have experience about the cornering issue?
Thanx!

As an aside ....I have www.ardcases.co.uk on my Ten. They have welded seams and are waterproof..I didn't fancy paying TT money.

If you look out for the white XTZ in this ride report you'll see the next size up from mine... eg post number 66
