Motion Pro Bead Popper

Two things I hope I never see again

I got a couple of cool gadgets today. I’m going to stash them in the “just in case” container in my pannier, and hope I never have to see them again. Bead Popper The first is the Motion Pro Bead Popper – I don’t know about you, but I usually change tires at home, using […]

Nothing to do with the Super Ténéré

But at least it’s Yamaha, and bloody funny!

The Tenere has landed! (in Canada, at least)

First report from a Canadian Super Tenere owner – Yukondood got the call early today, I ride and play with the owner, sales manager and head mechaninc and was lucky enough to PDI my bike.  No one else hands touch it!!

Heidenau K60 Scout – the first 600 miles

I’ve been interested in these Heidenau tires for a while now. I’ve been loving the Shinko 705’s on my DL1000, both for the performance and the price. They’re let down only by poor mileage – I get about 4000 miles out of a rear. The theory behind the Heidenau is that I should be able […]

Tyres for the Super Tenere

Tyres for the Super Tenere

I have a rear K60 Scout coming this week. The Shinko 705 on the Strom has a few more miles in it, but not much chop in dirt any more. It’s done 3600 miles/5700 km. I love the Shinkos, great price, good on road and off, and although they wear quite quickly, seem to maintain […]
