RightCross, do yourself a favor and go with a Wolfman or similar type tank bag.
The OEM moves all over off road. That's coming from handsome, modest, generous
personal experience.
+1 on the Wolfman tank
Bag. I got the Rainier model. Perfect.

October 2013 Motorcyclist Article

"The Ultimate Alps Adventure All The Big ADV Bikes Compared!" said the headline.

The bikes were the BMW R1200GS, Ducati Multistrada 1200S, Honda Crosstourer, KTM 1190 Adventure, Triumph Tiger Explorer and the Super Tenere.

Damn, this should be interesting. It was.

From the article: "Unfortunately, our Super Tenere was delivered directly from the German press fleet without the benefit of post-flog service, and it was badly abused. Both the fork and rear shock were blown, the front wheel was bent, and the rear wheel had two missing spokes. Handling was clearly compromised, but even making allowances, the Super Tenere still seemed outclassed. One tester accurately described the parallel-twin powerband as 'work horse, not stallion,' and the fueling was choppy, too."

Moto journalism at it's finest.

Well, the stock engine performance is pretty blase against the likes of the new GS. Shame they didn't have an undamaged S10 with a Gen II reflash.

Shame they didn't do dirt. Even beat all ta hell, the Tenere would more than hold its own.

The FREE Clutch Switch Mod would have impressed them!

Deer hit

Yes, like Ray said I hope you are ok.

How many miles did you have on the bike and what might you replace it with? Will you get another super ten or are you looking for something different?

"Extra, Extra read all about it."

Me riding has become such a rarity that it's become actual news. An inmate in Utards
had posted for a Sunday ride and I thought "I'm going". My kids remodel can live without
me a few hours.

I bet it felt good to get out. I've been a patient in the Fambulance too. It sucks to have the wife come especially if she's instructed to bring the kid for lifting help

Since we have so many mechanical failures on the S10 , I saw a BMW failure on a regional forum in my area. What a mess. http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....postcount=3588

So no 1200GS's came out and the Ton-ere had to play with with those agile kids?

Yeah, I rode in the back of a Durango from Moab to Salt Lake with a broken tib/fib when they told me the cost of
a real ambulance or helicopter. The meds had worn off about 75 miles from home.
That was a treat.

"Ton" is the word. I do have to say there were some really fun groomed pea gravel roads
with nice sweeper turns. TC off Sport mode and it was just wheel spinning out of the corners.

Tore some good chunks out of the K60. Of course in my mind I'm Kenny Roberts on the TZ
powered track bike.

I know it's getting old for some to hear again and again, but if you are not running the 2nd gen
reflash you're missing a whole lot of fun!

I was ATGATT so I walked away.

I picked up the damn thing brand new back in April and it's at 13500 miles right now. I paid cash and and only insured it with liability so no collision coverage.

It still runs and isn't twisted. Only bent a few mounting tabs. Radiator is with Mylers getting straightened. If it wasn't plastic, it's still salvageable (which isn't much, lol).

I have some tricks up my sleeves for new body work. Stay tuned.
