Puncture repair kit

New Slime compact puncture repair tool

I just discovered this tire repair tool to add to my kit. One of the issues I always seem to have with tire plugging kits is that the tools used to ream the hole and insert the rope are big, awkwardly shaped and have sharp points that need to be protected against. Plus there’s two […]

Protecting your fork seals

Protecting your fork seals

If you’d been following Nick Sanders on his Pan-Am record ride (ask him about it here) you may have heard that one of the few problems he had with his Super Tenere was leaky fork seals. Luckily he was due for a service in Salt Lake City so seals were replaced there and didn’t cost […]

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 […]

Broken Super Tenere footpeg

No, Nick has not been abducted by aliens…

Nick Sanders was on the run home – riding to Toronto from Deadhorse after fifty thousand miles on the Super Tenere – when his Spot tracker stopped sending his position outside Fargo, North Dakota. After tracking him daily during his 46-day Pan-Am there-and-back record, it seemed like he’d dropped off the face of the earth. […]

Casey Stoner – another day at the office

Not likely to be doing anything like this any time soon on the Super Tenere – er, or, maybe ever… Casey Stoner and Honda are at the top of their game, and Valentino and Nicky’s struggles with the Ducati only emphasize how well Casey was riding it last year. This pic is from the tests […]

Thankyou Yamaha

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 […]
