    Super Ténéré, Enhanced and Enlarged

    No this is not spam! You really can get enhanced and enlarged by simply sending Jaxon your gas tank (and credit card details). This is Jaxon’s first Super Tenere enlargement, and it looks like it will be a beauty. It retains the lines of the stock tank but with a more than 2 US gallon [...]

  • Altrider Luggage Rack Review

    Altrider Luggage Rack Review

    I installed the Altrider luggage rack a few weeks ago. What a lovely piece of work. The rugged design and precise fabrication (with beveled edges on all the sharp bits) give it a real quality feel. Installation was a breeze, instructions hardly required. The hardest part was removing the redundant Yamaha parts – and that [...]

    Bags-Connection “GS” Quick-Lock Tankbag

    Let me say this up front – I love tank bags. Always have. Yes, they are annoying when they won’t stay in place, when they scratch up the tank, when you have to mess around with straps every time you get gas. And REALLY annoying when they hit the horn when you turn hard left, [...]

    Nick Sanders answers your questions

    Nick Sanders’ ride from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego and back in 49 days, riding a Super Tenere, was an incredible effort. Even more incredible when you think he was filming it for his just-released documentary, aptly named “The Incredible Ride”. Of course this is not his first time around the block, and it may [...]

    In Appreciation of Workers at Yamaha Japan

    Over at the yamahasupertenere.com forum, we’ve been working on a project that we hope will show our appreciation to the workers in the Yamaha factory in Iwata, Japan. These guys and girls did a fantastic job of building our bikes in the aftermath of the tsunami, and getting them to us only 2 months later [...]

Super Ténéré “Best Adventure Bike 2012″

So says respected US magazine Cycle World. We’d have to agree! See the full story here

Looking for an answer to the windshield problem

Looking for an answer to the windshield problem

One of the areas that the Super Tenere ergonomics that is ripe for improvement is the windscreen. I’ve never been comfortable with it a highway speeds, constant buffeting is draining after a while. The fact that I wear a Shoei Hornet dual-sport helmet with a peak on it probably doesn’t help, but that same helmet [...]

Davide Biga - around the world on a Super Tenere

Davide Biga completes his RTW ride on a Super Ténéré

Davide Biga left his home in Italy in May 2011 for a 90,000 km/55,000 miles ride around the world on his white Super Tenere. One year later he returned with many good memories (and a few not so good ones…). The bike performed flawlessly, but for a burned headlight bulb, and came through a big [...]

Into the Badlands…

Into the Badlands…

… the Klim Badlands Pro, that is… I picked up my new suit at Romney Cycles last weekend – and I’ll tell you what, I’m excited! Over the last few years Klim has been building a reputation for tough, waterproof, comfortable riding gear. The main drawback? Their gear is expensive. This particular suit comes in [...]

Super Ténéré and others, riding Spain

Super Ténéré and others, riding Spain

Here’s an excellent video that tells the story of a bunch of guys on a trip in Spain – good music, gorgeous scenery and some challenging dirt. Oh, and a BMW “having issues”! From a cool blog, HERE in English, or in the original Spanish - http://noimportaeldestinosinoelcamino.com Maybe somebody could help me out with the translation [...]

Gathering of the Super Tenere at Romney Cycles, West Virginia, May 18/19/20

The guys at Romney Cycles in Romney, WV, have been talking for a while about sponsoring an ADV-style weekend based out of the store, some time in spring 2012. Now it’s here! May 18/19/20 at the store. They have quite a few happy Super Tenere customers, but want to get to know us (and the [...]

An excellent accessory…

An excellent accessory…

I ran across this Fenix E05 R2 Flashlight on a photography site. It was highly recommended for photographers because of its power, it’s “color” and the smooth, even glow it gives out. That makes it good for lighting scenes without flash, especially when using long exposures. It’s also good for setting up gear in total darkness, as photographers [...]

How to Build a Super Ténéré Saddle

How to Build a Super Ténéré Saddle

The stock saddle on the Super Ténéré it pretty good, as far as it goes. It’s far better than the stock V-Strom seat for example, which has me squirming after 30 minutes. On the other hand, I can ride 12 hours straight on a Corbin seat on the same bike, and get to the end [...]
