I know. No offense taken. I mentioned to her the other day that I loved my Tenere but that it doesn't have best wind protection for cold weather riding. She told me to go get a second bike for winter riding.
HA!

So they cloned mine eh?

Nice!

Nice guy from Mexico, said the bike was only sold one year there.
Just out having a good ride about.


Hey there TrashCan, that would be me! I remember our conversation and your advise to run heated gear... I felt really stupid for leaving mine back at the hotel!

I still envy you for living so close to the gap!

Open pipes render the threat of the car tire moot.

Flying thru left hand curve demonstrates serious skill. Flying normally occurs on right hand turns, due to centrifugal forces. To fly while going straight or turning left is impressive, particularly on a big bike. I once scraped the left peg of a hacked KLR. Have always wished I had a picture of that.

It's scary to think of the side load on those wheels.

Probably jetted just right too, so it pops just right on decel and revs real slow like a POS should.

It's a shame, because they can run pretty well when properly set up, seems like alot of people buy one of those and become a mechanical expert overnight.
