    Got a new toy...

    2012 Yamaha Super Tenere I got it about 5 or 6 weeks ago from a guy over on ADV. Came with Shinko 804/805, Sargent seats and original seats, Vstream screen and original, Madstad adjustable bracket, winglets, Hepco and Becker skid plate, Altrider crash bars, Headlight guard, Oxford heated...

    Offroad winch comes standard on all bikes?

    The current ADV Pulse Newsletter included the article, Chris Birch Just Showed Us Our Bikes Have a Built-In Winch. I've never seen this done and frankly, the idea never even occurred to me to try it. I'm curious to know what you guys think of the idea. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtJzpziuCao

    Left hand zippers on jackets

    I bought a cheapo mesh riding jacket on sale and it has the zipper pull on the left instead of the right. Some quick googling tells me that left vs right is all over the place, with some sites suggesting it's a Euro thing, to others saying it's a gender thing, to others saying there's no...

    Braking hard...I didn't do it right this morning and almost paid the price

    I usually take scenic back roads to work, because there's less traffic, even though there's a faster way. I didn't take my motorcycle on the less traveled path today and regretted it. I was in the left lane of a major road and had just left a traffic light. I was closing on a slow car ahead of...

    help me wire a fuse block right?

    I'm desperately trying to find as much of this info as I can on my own. I got most of it from dduelin's Accessory fuse block add-on thread from 2012 and a few well-done YouTube videos. However, a couple of things have me stumped and I hope someone wouldn't mind helping me with the following...

    SW-Motech skid plate fail

    I installed this skid plate this weekend on my 2014 NC700X. The old brackets came off and the new brackets went on without any issues. When it came time to install the plate itself, the front screws went in fine, but the rear ones were WAY off. I couldn't even see the the hole in the bracket...

    Which one of you is this?

    A couple of us took our NCs down a pretty rough, washed-out gravel trail this weekend. I have the standard model with PR4s and CRStep has the DCT with Pirelli Angel GTs. We took it kind of slow and careful, since we have street tires, but then I saw this video and wondered if it's one of you...

    No left on red?

    Today was going to be a great day. I went to bed early, got a solid 7+ hours of sleep, was out the door 15 minutes early for work, and was already looking forward to getting to work early enough to hit the omelet bar in the cafeteria before I started work. The I pulled up first at an...

    This might make a good backup helmet for somebody...

    I don't know how many of you saw this deal, but Motorcycle Superstore has a deal for 69% off Scorpion EXO-R410 Incline helmets. Thought I'd put that out there in case anyone needed a backup or maybe one for emergencies.

    Why I no longer want offroad tires for my NC

    This looks like it'd be much more fun to ride offroad than my NC... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSWlht1ybL4

    Raleri anti-fog visor inserts

    I mentioned in another thread that I'm trying out an alternative to a pin lock lens. For those of you not familiar it's an anti-fog device that creates the motorcycle visor equivalent of a double-pane window. Last time I checked Scorpion hadn't released the pin lock visor for my helmet, but...

    GPS advice needed

    I wanted a GPS, so I could upload a .gpx file for rides I meticulously plotted with some online software. Google Maps can't do that and annoys me endlessly by offering alternate routes. OSMAnd is very close, but not 100%. So, I got a Garmin nuvi 2597LMT (my very first dedicated GPS device)...

    Frunk mounted water bottle

    The heat index here has often been over 100 lately, so ya gotta keep hydrated while ya ride. My wife says I'm a drama queen for whining about having to pull over, take off my gloves, remove my helmet, dig out a bottle of water, swallow as much as I could hold, gear back up, and get back on...

    I did something dumb...

    A few weeks ago I was pulling my NC into the garage after commuting home. I was just sitting there on my bike. I'd taken of my gloves, jacket, etc., but not my helmet yet, because I was finishing a scene in an audiobook. Well, I stepped off the bike and down she went. Yep, I had forgotten to put...

    ask me about Fly Racing customer service...

    Okay, I can't wait til you ask... Spoiler alert: they are freaking awesome!! I bought a Fly Butane 4 riding jacket in black and hi-viz yellow from Revzilla last month. The thermal liner was impressive, but I won't be using it for about 6 months so it got removed immediately, leaving a lot of...

    Are my factory ties gone already?

    I've got 2,400 miles on my NC. I think my rear tire looks more worn than it should. Here's what the ties look like. Am I being overly paranoid? ]

    umm, how do I get on/off this darn thing?

    I feel like this is the dumbest question ever, but I'm fixin' to ask it anyway. I recently added a Nelson-Rigg tail bag to my NC and have a Kriega US-10 on the way. I thought they'd make my life easier, since I'd no longer be burdened with a backpack. WRONG! I can't even get on/off my darn bike...

    advice about Deal's Gap trip

    I've never ridden the Tail of the Dragon. Unfortunately, I was at the NRA Convention the weekend that the group on this forum went. None of my good-for-nothing friends have bikes, so I'll probably be going alone. My route there would get me there in just over 5 hours. And my route home would...
