Ive been reading information on the site for a few months now and am very impressed. This is my first posting and I am looking to link up with fellow XT riders based in London S.E. swapping inforrmation, tips, adventures etc
As you may have guessed, I have a XTZ 660 97 Tenere and looking for others that own and ride the same or similar model. I seem to be the only one who has one of these bikes and not seen anyone else with one on the road.
I've no major trips planned at the moment, thought it would be better to network with others and learn as much as i can about the bike.
Would also appreciate feedback if this is already taking place elsewhere
Hi I've just bought one of these but live in crete . just in the uk now for a few days buying voltage regs as they seem to be the most common mentioned problem I've got the tenere model with the biggish tank and the vaccuum fuel pump was also leaking a nacked rubber membrain in the unit which I semi repaired with rubber glue to keep me going until a new one was sourced. If you are travelling greece ,crete and want a stop over text me on +30 6947 784 935 cheers rog preston.
Are you still in Crete? We are in Crete now and are looking for safe storage for our Super Tenere and gear for 16 months, two winters, one summer, while we go home to earn more money to continue our RTW trip.
We are looking for a space in someones garage and are willing to pay for it.
If you know of anyone please let us know or if you are still here it would be great to catch up with you or any other Horizons bikers in Crete

i would love to see some photos of other peoples xtz660. i love my ride, although have not ridden it now for almost 6 months.
i was taken out by a large truck while riding, i was ok but bike not so lucky.
it has taken me a LONG time to put her back together but it will be worth the wait. i have spared no expense putting my old "sooty" back to one piece.
cant wait to show fellow xtz appreciators the labor of my love, i think another two weeks will see the job finished. my wife and i ride this bike from london to india in 2004....so we are very attached.....
Antek, thanks for the invitation thats Croatia and Crete now, the list of places to visit seems to be growing, no alliteration intended.
Phil, sorry to hear of your accident and more importantly glad that your unhurt as a result of it. Looking forward to seeing photo's of old 'sooty', i'll have to arrange for some of mine.
I have just come across a proposed London meeting on the 30 Nov 06 posted by Maria under , HU Travellers meeting- UK', anyone interested should post their interest there, it would be a good opportunity to meet XTZ owners or not..
Lastly, I had a message left on my phone by M&P informing that they have discontinued crash bars for my model of bike??
