If that's the same video I saw, the guys is an amazing expert rider on the tenere which also looks to be stripped down a little. All the reports I read showed the tenere to be not as good as the gs off road. That surprised me as my gs suspension isn't that great.

That video really has nothing to do with the bike, it's all about the rider. That guy is one hell of a rider.

I might of had some that would work Ted. West Marine is where I used to buy all of that stuff when I was working on big ships. I used those a bunch to place in the holes I made to run wire through. Keeps the sharp egdes from chaffing the wire. No West Marine around here but whatever boat supply place near the lake should have those.

Did you see how many times he put a foot down? Amateur. Plus he rode around town the whole time, when he is going to develop off road skills? LOL

We had West Marine for awhile and it was great for all kinds of odds and ends for boats and MC's...gone now

Just rig you throttle to open half way, it will feel like a 250 and get the mileage too. I had a 250 in junior high.
