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 […]

Rumbux combined crashbar and skidplate – military-grade protection

The Rumbux integrated crash bar/skid plate design is a three piece unit. The main, lower bars, the skid plate, (which bolts to the main lower bars with 6 easy to access bolts), and the upper crash bar unit that includes the hoop up under the lights. The upper unit bolts to the lower unit and […]

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 […]

Chipped the tank

Idiot installs new handlebars, chips paintwork.

Yes that idiot would be me… I installed new bars on the weekend (story to come) and they are about an inch lower the OEM bars. I DID check the clearance once everything was mounted, but then made some fine adjustments and forgot to check again. Turned the bars hard left and – clunk. I […]

Thankyou Yamaha

A response from the Super Tenere Team, Yamaha Motor, Hamamatsu, Japan…

Wow, this is great! Why? For those not familiar with the saga of the Super Tenere and its tortuous path to launch in the United States and Canada, a bit of background. First launched in Europe and the rest of the world in the middle of 2010, there was some doubt that they would come […]

rideonadv.com skid plate for Super Tenere 1200

New Skid Plate from Texas!

There’s a new kid on the block! Or protecting the (engine) block, actually. This skid plate from Jaxon at rideonadv.com is a work of art. Based loosely on the skid plate that Yamaha showed on the WorldCrosser, this plate is designed to take the hits while protecting the engine – and looking good at the […]

...and down she went!

…and down she went!

It was a silly thing, as usual. I’d pulled of on the shoulder to take a photo. Too lazy to get off the bike, I was moving my body around to get the angle I wanted. The bike tilts a little too far one way, my foot goes out – and keeps going, skidding on […]

Nick Sander gassing up in South America

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 […]
