Re: 110 Years of Triumph

I like Triumphs (I have a Speed Triple 1050 that I'll be selling) and before I bought my Tenere I looked at the Triumph 800XC. One of the reasons apart from the cost that I didn't get one is that it felt very top heavy. Ok, the Tenere isn't a lightweight but to me it seemed to carry it's weight a bi...

Re: First proper ride out on the Tenere

I know exactly where you are as I live 10 minutes away from those trails. The first part leads up to the Ridgeway which as I understand it is banned to motorised vehicles, so did you stay on legal Byways? I've been down there lots of times!! Both on 4 wheels, two wheels and on foot. Yes,it's now cl...

First proper ride out on the Tenere

I've had the Tenere for a week and today I got out on the dirt for the first time on the Berskshire Downs following a familiar route to get used to the big 'Ten'... Ready for the off, all nice and shiney http://i123.photobucket.com/albums/o294/Scott_rider_photos/photo-1.jpg The first chalky trail ht...

Re: Hi everyone, I've just bought an XT660Z Tenere

I've now done about 150 miles on it and my impressions are still excellent. At the weekend I did a couple of gravel tracks close to home just to see what is was like on gentle off road going and I have to say that although it obviously felt bigger than my 450 KTM it wasn't as difficult riding it as ...

Re: Hi everyone, I've just bought an XT660Z Tenere

I did, for a brief moment, consider JMo's bike because it looks stunning however it was more money than I wanted to spend and to be honest from what I saw in the photos and read about it I came to the quick conclusion that it would have been wasted on me because it was set up for proper competition ...

Re: Obscuring number plates

As a newbie here I don't know if this has been covered before but this is my take on it: When we've been out on the dirt bikes (road legal KTMs) we obscure our number plates in any photos that we post (usually on TBM) because we take the view that even though we ride legal byways someone may say tha...

Re: Hi everyone, I've just bought an XT660Z Tenere

Thanks again guys, this forum seems to be busy which is really good. I put a few miles on the Tenere yesterday and initial impressions are very, very good :) . It's quicker than I was expecting (my road bike is a Triumph 1050 Speed Triple) and it also handles it's weight a lot better than I was expe...
