I do like how the Rigid hides in a nice protected spot. Not hatin' on the
Mickey Mouse ear lights....just that they tend to be vunerable on a tip over.

This is why I went with the Rigid light bar. I have this habit of falling over on the bike.

Grand kid wanted a sand box in the back yard. First time I"ve had to say no to her.

If you read between the lines in Jaumev's ride report I think he is starting to agree.

"We reached the first oasis full of sand, rivers of sand, roads full of sand, sand and more sand ... how I miss my DRZ!! ...
with the Suzuki this track was fun but with the cow is a nightmare and I'm tired... David and Albert suffer as well in the sand,"

Damn, Pluric! That sand fear factor must be gettin' pretty bad when you're scared having a sand box in the back yard for your granddaughter would cause you to crash!!!



And you may be right about Jaumev, but I gotta' say one thing about our resident Super Tenere Spaniard... He sure does seem to have *FUN* wherever he goes!

Make yourself comfortable. And be careful "in the big cities". We suck at driving.

Not quite, bike goes to air-shippers on Monday, we fly Wednesday.

Were still in the "giving money away" phase.

If you happen to breeze through Australia you can pop in here as well. Remember us. You dumped us here 200 odd years ago. We have been on our best behavior ever since...really.
We were even nice enough not to declare war on you...

There is lots of sand to play in....

You're welcome..

ACD plate

Anyone mount an ACD plate who would like to share some rear mount position details with me.

Close up photos would be nice.

Leaving on a trip in 6 days, chasing 49 other tenere's around.

Just need some clarification regards supplied spacers and mount points.
