Re: The Yamaha Tenere thread

My xt660z of 2009 vintage is at 85,000 mls no major breakdowns... Just keeps plodding along.... Fresh oil regularly is secret.... But most honda, yam and suzuki will do over 100,000 miles if looked after.... Ktms well they need regular beatings with a tree branch and garage visits.

Re: 2022 KLR 650

Read the swm super dual thread on adv rider. Com..... Its a turd.

I do like the pr7 much better than the ccm gp450 and actually has factory support and development..

The klr 650 is for the yanks who know no better.... Hell they still think the Harley is great.

Re: EU. In or out?

Re: The Yamaha Tenere thread

Lol shit design for sure... My 12 year old xt660z had solid crash pads.. Never broken one yet.... Thought the T7 was supposed to be a world adventure bike.... Sure the defects will be rectified in the 2nd edition models....

Very nice fix by the way.... Simple but effective.... You'll sell loads..

Re: Back when we could

The rate things are going it'll be like the 80s again.. Franks and pesetas and visa for each new country also a shot in the arm at customs... I'm just waiting for the travel corridors to open again and I'm off to anywhere I can go or get.... I'm lucky I've 10 acres to play in but it's looking like M...
