Had a chance to take the new Super Tenere out today for a few hours, lots of fun, great bike, seriously better than a BMW GS. KTM Adventure would have the edge off road I think. Still the S10 held it's own, even 2up.
A kind friend came over saturday and left me with his van a lot lighter. The reason? He deposited his DR800 in my shed.
A bearing has gone inside the gearbox, and the engine requires splitting. This is job number one. After that job number two is reassembly, followed by job number three which is building a sidecar for it.
This weekend saw plenty of bike activity. Saturday saw me pulling the guts out of the wiring loom for the Speed Triple, a few little things to do now and then MoT this week hopefully. Looking forward to hustling the old girl again.
Today saw the Tenere getting some hoodlum love as I made the link pipe up for the Ghettotrapp silencer (Micron race silencer with Supertrapp end plates) that I'd made at the end of last year. I thought I'd get some practice in TIGing up the tube before making the system for SB#3. Quite pleased, though I need to be more consistent with my filler rod.
