They are pretty much the same coin and width for the 37/45 combo, really boils down to personal preference and I just like the tight azz look of the Holan 38s. At 35" wide, it makes it that much easier to weave around cars like I have to do sometimes in bad traffic jams.

1st. I'd like to thank Jim (aka Japaco) for farkleing the bike so well, that I can scarcely think of anything to do to it.

2nd. I was planning on keeping the WeeStrom until I was sure the Tenere would satisfy me enough that I wouldn't want to keep the Wee. I haven't even started it since getting the S10 , I haven't ridden it, have no desire to, and will clean it and put it up for sale this weekend.

3rd. WOW what a fantastic bike! Power is fantastic. Japako had done the reflash, installed the clutch override switch, arrow headers, and a Leo Vince can, and other than a surge occasionaly, it runs like a striped ass ape! I do have a little concern about the spokes on the front wheel, although I haven't had time to check them all. I get a little wobble once in a while when cornering aggressively. Is that spokes? Or is there something else I should be looking at?

4th. Good lord, did they underspring the rear of this thing, or what! I weigh 200, and when my wife and I went to the Hill country, even full preload was nowhere near enough. This will have to go to the top of the "to do" list

5th. It sure doesn't feel like it weighs 500 lbs! It's got Micatech bags, and I added a Trax top box, Givi engine guards, and cool custom highway pegs. Madstad bracket with cross bar for GPS mount! Fully loaded and two up, I never once felt anything but total contril, even in the slow, parking lot, u-turn type stuff, and even the dirt roads don't seem threatening.

In conclusion, if you don't have a Super Tenere yet, you don't know what you're missing................
I'm glad to hear you really like the bike. I'm sure you will have a great time riding the old girl.
About the wobble, I had that pop up when I was riding in MO and after I lowered the psi the wobbles went away. I had it around 32 psi.

With you and your wife, plus a good load, I'm sure the things have changed. You might need to reset the suspenders to suit the load.
Be sure to reset the sag.
As mentioned already, I would change the spring rate in the front and rear. I never road two up, so these problems never came up.
Jim

Having said that if you sign up you can abuse us on-line. It will help keep our interest up, in publishing it.

Oi !.... I resemble that remark.

So far, New York, Newport, Rhode Island, Boston - we were just across the river when the officer was murdered. It effects us deeply considering our previous occupation and the fact that I too have been shot by terrorists, but I was lucky.
Then it was Salem and now we are headed up towards Vermont.

Just as a heads up. It's open season for large slow moving blue vehicles in the States right now.
I believe there is even a bounty for Brit flags.

Ride safe!

You can buy from the US vendor, Jason of advmotorrad (check the vendor forum), very nice guy. Or order directly from holan.pl. Aleksandra is very quick to respond to email.

Umm, don't look now but your cover has been broken. It's not that the 'Stealth' mode is down.
It's the thing is freaking big enough to have it's own weather system and is being tracked by that.

There is also a rumor it may be affecting local tide patterns as well.

I can see why you posted this in the "Super Tenere XT1200 BIG Thread" instead of the "Show us your bikes" thread.

Well if it's a bitch slap it will truly feel like it came from you.
