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 crash with no structural damage.

Here’s an excerpt from his interview with Italian web site http://www.pianetariders.it ;

6) On your journey around the world takes you a Yamaha Super Tenere. You could say that nobody has been able to test this Maxi-Enduro as thoroughly as you did. Tell us a bit ‘of its strengths and weaknesses, will satisfy all or would you improve in anything?

I would say perfect for use at 360 degrees. Right away I liked when I was already lucky enough to try it in 2010, during the “Ride for Life.” I immediately felt very sturdy and perfect for my purposes. In 85,000 km I just burned a headlight bulb … amazing. For someone like me, often alone, traveling without the mechanical assistance of any kind or later I could not ask for better.

The only change made ​​to make it more functional for my purposes was the installation of aluminum suitcases roomiest in its Diapason Racing made ​​specifically for this bike, as well as other details such as an exhaust Leovince … the voice was very rewarding!
