UPCOMING REVIEW – ALTRIDER HIGH FENDER KIT WITH SPEED BLEEDER FOR YAMAHA TENERE 700

This kit will arrive with me in the next few days and I’ll then be fitting and reviewing it. I have to say, I don’t normally do aesthetic upgrades, apart from graphics, but if I’m completely honest, I don’t “need” a high front fender as 90% of my riding is currently on the road and light off-road. Coming from a motocross and enduro background, however, I’m used to having a high fender and do prefer […]

HAMMERLEDS FLEX 4 TURN SIGNALS ARE NOW ON THEIR WAY AND OUR REVIEW IS FINALLY IMMINENT

These have been a long time coming but we’re finally a few days away from receiving our review units of the HammerLEDs Flex 4 T700 replacement indicators (turn signals). In fairness, Valeriy at HammeLEDs have been communicative all along and gaining UK and European CE certification is a long and very involved process.

RIDER DOWN – “RIDE4LIFE RAY” YESTERDAY RODE AWAY FROM THIS WORLD – RIDE IN PEACE, RAY

This morning I received some incredibly sad new. Ray “Ride4Life” yesterday lost his battle with cancer and rode from this world to the next. I’d chatted to Ray over the last few weeks by telephone and text and I’d planned to go down to see him at the end of the summer. Sadly, our meeting will not happen in this life. Ray was an avid motorcycle adventurer and loved his Tenere 700. He contributed greatly […]

NOW ILLUMINATED! PELICASE TOP BOX WITH INTEGRATED FUEL/WATER CARRYING SYSTEM – TENERE 700

Many people doubted this project but I’ve built many systems like this for overland travel on a bike over the last 35 years and they’ve all worked beautifully. The only thing missing (and this is something I’d not done before) was illumination. I often pull into a campsite quite late and by the time I’ve setup camp it’s either dark or getting dark. I have the REDVERZ ATACAMA 2 EXPEDITION MOTORCYCLE TENT and, as such, the […]

OVERLAND RIDER PELICASE TOP BOX WITH INTEGRATED FUEL/WATER CARRYING SYSTEM – TENERE 700

We all use our beloved bikes for different purposes. Many purchase a Tenere 700 for hard off-road riding, some for trail riding and others for their daily commute. Mine does a bit of everything but I mostly use it for touring. Some might choose other bikes for long distance hauls but I love the stance and handling of the T700 and it suits me just fine. One thing I’ve wanted to do for a while […]
