Hello Tom,

It looks like your tank is the 10L one. I already have one of thoes so no need to ship from uk. If you happen to have an early generation Tenere tank in good condition let me know.

Thanks,

Pawlie

It might be worth me making the wheels I have into 17" Supermotos and selling them to a tarmac terrorist!!!
Tom,

I would be interested in the 17" SuperMoto wheels if you do build them

I only have the rear now.
It would have to be re-rimmed as there are a few tiny cracks appearing where the spokes go into the rim.

Check yours now - This is not a one off!!!

I'm having to rebuild mine because of cracks around the spoke eye's.
Hopefully getting the hubs back from the powder coater's on Monday so will be building a set with gold Excel rims & S/S spokes.

As Tom say's - check your rims, the cracks are very small and radiate out from the spoke eye's

Seat + rack, again

If anyone wants Tom's 34L seat & rack, they are re-available from me! Nothing wrong with them ... they just don't fit my bike

Mostly my bike is a 34L, but apparently not as regards the seat and rack (I bought it in South Africa, and it has a 39E- frame number).

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
