It handled the rough tracks in India which were very very rocky, Would have been good for some longer legs for travelling 6000km across Iran though. This pic was about a month ago on my first trip 'ranch' ridinng in some creek bottoms.

Yamaha XT 600 TENERE

A sturdy luggage rack and plastic tool box take the place of the U. In Europe they absolutely loved them; over a decade the French alone bought 20,000 Teneres; over 30% of all production. How do I prepare the bike? But in the real world of overland travel, loaded down with baggage and a long ride ahead on a crap road or track, lighter is always better. Is it all worth it? This bike runs and rides beautifully. Throughout all this the Dunlop tyres held on pretty well, although you could make them squirm on the road and they clogged hopelessly in the mud. . Discs on trail bikes seem compulsory now, but this one worked well on tarmac or mud with just two-finger pressure, as so it should with only 324 pounds to stop.

Also, I have heard talk that lowering can adversly effect handling. Jeff 83 and 85 are pretty much the same. It's a shame that they couldn't finish it in something more durable as rust was already nibbling away at the black paint and eating into the metal beneath. The bike became even slower to turn on the dirt and on the road. Efi on a big single is a great step forward, in my opinion.

This transformed the heavy 165kg Enduro in to a perfect touring machine for motorcycle travellers. And preferably reasonably light in weight in case it had to be dragged out of a muddy swamp, or put in a canoe should the need arise. . This may be the answer? When you decide to become a Member, it helps directly support the site. Using no rack was another mistake which nearly cost me the bike when my baggage caught fire.

It seemed completely oiltight, except that it was weeping a little around the tappet covers. Featuring the 13 winning photos from the Horizons Unlimited annual motorcycle travel photo contest! All the other road users were giving me a wide berth as I tried to predict the gusts and control the wildly bucking bike from running over the hard shoulder and off the edge. And I painted it black because I was still in my juvenile Mad Max phase. There's an engine, wheels 2 and a seat as well. The Registration and Inspection has always been kept up to date until March of this year. . Of course this can be fixed by lowering the suspension of which there is more than enough.

I've got a set of the Mefo Explorers waiting to go on sometime this spring. No electric leg, just the old-fashioned kickstarter. Dry and clean with no oily, dirty spots anywhere I only use Teflon dry lubricant , solid with all functioning parts. Ride quality is average but that's across all terrains! Just like the Tenere always did in fact, only more so. Dry weight was a modest 300 pounds, with the gas tank holding an equally modest 2. Wheels were a tall 21-incher in front, 17 at the rear, with mildly knobby tires.

It proved to be an excellent commuter, getting me to work in an unusually relaxed state. Would love to hear from you on the above comparison. A Tenere is rather a tall, heavy and powerful bike for just getting round Laos, unless of course you are riding it all the way there. Their lust for breaking big bikes over long distances combined with their centuries-old domination of most of North Africa led to the development of the Paris-Dakar desert rally. There can't be much future in over-revving a piston of this size, so it's better just to hook up one and tramp on.
