I feel like I am already being scammed to within an inch of my life already so I respectfully decline. However, if you have a family fortune tied up in red tape that you need funding to release, just let me know.

We'll be in DC around the end of April. Thanks, perhaps we can meet for a beer.

Cheers. We'll be through there sometime mid May (ish). We are doing the Trace up to Tupelo.

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

You're welcome..
Cant say as I remember, but I heard about it. Aren't you the people in striped pyjamas who stand on your heads ?
I am glad you didn't declare war. We would have all died laughing at being attacked by men in striped suits lugging balls and chains around.

Seriously, thanks. OZ and NZ is on the list too but not for a couple of years. We have NA and SA this year and Africa next year. And I have a few Nigerians to put through university yet .

As to whether we will be on two wheels. Not sure yet. I want to, but I will have to see how much Karen's butt holds up and for various logistical reasons, (work, animals etc) we have never done a long bike trip together so we will see.

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.
I'll go to take some pics and send it to you... is very easy to mount!

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,"
I know... I was thinking in your advise, Pluric... but you know… young people must learn for themselves… mummy advises don’t stop them…

The fact was: the first sand day I was really depressed looking my two fellows with their GSA (with 21” front wheel) flying in the sand… Once a year they go to Morocco and they are really good riding in sand.
Looking at them I realized my mistake. I rode in first and second gear at high revs and low speed but the way is third gear, low revs, body backwards and high speed…. The brain said to stop but if you don’t it works!! …. Sometimes…

Video from the first day in sand: terrible

Video from the second day: fun!!

Oh Jaumev!

Pluric is now curled up on the floor, rocking backwards and forwards, muttering "sand...sand...sand!"

And sleepless nights for months to come!

Hey Jaumev-

What handlebars did you end up replacing your bent stock bars with? I'm still not 100% satisfied with my Pro-Taper KX-Hi with 2" risers...

I didn't replace the stock bars before the trip, the new arrives just few days before and I didn't have time to fix it.
I bought a Protaper Contour Raptor. Looks fine but I didn't try it yet.

Too high, you got high bars plus risers? Yikes! Nobody would be satisfied with that setup I wouldn't think, but everyone is different I suppose.

The KX-Hi bars are really flat actually. Less rise than the stock bars and less sweep. My DRZ had them on it when I bought it and I've never had my hands go numb once on that bike, so I thought I'd try out the same bars on the Tenere.

I put the Raptor without risers and look quite high to me. No need risers at all.

The rear brackets look like they mount to the inside of the centre stand bolts is that right?

Yes, and the spacers are for this place as well
