I love that second one. Cracks me up.

It reminds of blokes and girls who fall down in strange ways after spending too long at the pub

Loved the RR mate. I hope it was worth a few spills.

The bar has been set too high with the cliff shot and two foot deep sand.
I feel like a pussy posting mine.

Stumbled on this interesting thread by accident. Not wishing to highjack the theme but are these bikes reliable? Lots of technology in them.

They are as reliable as a bike can be. Those "loads of technology" that you talk about work pretty well, and if they fail (yet to be seen) they don't stop the bike.
Some guy went for intercontinental runs with them, no problems at all, even with crappy fuel

So far as an owner following other Tenere sites they have been very bulletproof.
Most common thing mentioned is a slight stall or hiccup off idle corrected by
adjusting a throttle body screw or having the ecu reflashed.

Mechanically I'm not aware of any common gremlins. Owners seem to always report how
much they like the bike compared to past motorcycles and leave positive reviews.
Myself included, multibike owner and this is my favorite.

Search the other Super Tenere threads and you'll find they are - surprise - reliable Jap bikes!


The few things people have learned are that many don't like the windshield so replace it with numerous options, and if going off road, get a belly plate & crash bars.

Again, plenty of other threads and the entire Yamaha Super Tenere forum dot com


Pluric - so why the wheel photos? Break a spoke?

Where have you been?

I post my drama all over the place. I've bent my front and rear wheels.
Sent them to Woody's and he fixed them nicely.

Went to Baja a couple weeks ago and branged the front so bad it wouldn't
hold air. Never broken a spoke. Have lost a nipple on the rear.

Woohooo.

Finally some more sleeping Tenere's

I am not surprised your Tenere was a bit sleepy Pluric, Looks it was ridden pretty hard all week.

Looks like the YAMAHA cases held up OK. as well.

Like I've said some times previously, the OEM cases are quite tougher than they look

One more time.....

Try www.tinypic.com

Hit the "browse" button and click the photo you want uploaded.

It will then take you to a security code box where you type in
what ever word/words or advertising message.

Then hit the "upload now" button. If you have already resized your photos
smaller it will load them quickly. If they are still full sized it will take a moment.

If large photo was loaded you can hit the "edit" button on the right to make it smaller
for this site.

Left click on the code in the "forums and message boards" box.
While it has turned black after clicking on it right click and "copy" it.

Now back to your post and hit "paste" you will see the code you just cut
pasted there and when you submit your post it will be your photo. Good luck!
