Re: The Yamaha Tenere thread

Egg & bacon in brown bread for me, please, although it will probably leak yolk into the box. My modest T7 accessorizing continues, with OEM centre stand and skid plate now joining the engine bars, chain guide & Scottoiler. The bolts securing the original tin foil skid plate were used to fill the 4 t...

Re: Don't see these come up for sale very often

I always fancied one of those but they were not available in UK at the time. Hydraulic valve mechanism, if I remember correctly. And shaft drive - there was a lot 'right' about this bike, but it disappeared into obscurity far too soon. And not so 'little' in the day, when a 750 was regarded as a big...

Link - stickers on boxes; my all-time no. 1 (so far), being a copy of a frequently found road sign in Patagonia, it always reminds me of great times.

Re: The Yamaha Tenere thread

Re: Honda CB500 1998 for sale
