The foremost advantage of the Ténéré is the performance in relation to the price. The bike is capable of doing everything from riding on a motocross track to highway touring.
One of the important features is the robustness and reliability which is especially important when riding to distance locations.
Adjustning the riding position and suspension is easy and there are loads of accessories to make the bike equipped for adventure.
The Anakee Adventure is a 80/20 tire with very good longevity. The long lasting ablity comes from the use of two different rubber materials (with a harder and long lasting compound in the middle and a softer material on the sides).
Front: 90/90 -21 54V
Rear: 150/70 R18 70V
The Anakee Wild is my default tire for adventure riding. It is considered as a 50/50 tire and has a bridge block technology. This means that the blocks are attached to each other at the base of the tire, giving it both stability and longevity.

Rear: 150/70 R18 70R
I prefer using a tube when adventure riding. The Michelin Airstop Offroad tube is 2,5 mm thick and is a middleground between a road tube (approx 1,8 mm) and a heavy duty tube (4 mm). It is made of butyl and holds the air inside the tube very well and is possible to put a patch on.
The Michelin Tracker is a street legal offroad tire with allround ability. It performs really well on everything from motocross tracks to gravel roads. The price point of these tires ar also really good.
Front: 90/90 -21 54R
Rear: 140/80 -18 70R
The Michelin Ultra Heavy Duty tube is 4 mm thick and made of natural rubber. This gives a more robust tube, for example to prevent pinches when riding enduro or offroad.
The Krios is really light and this is important for me as I ride long days and for long periods. This means less stress on the neck and shoulders.
The helmet is well wented and I use it as a MX and Enduro helmet when removing the visor.
The Badlands is a good jacket for allround adventure riding. The quality and engineering is the best on the market. Ventilation, visiblity and protection is first class.
The Badland pants is well vented and has pockets placed on the legs. This is a feature I like since I carry my survival kit and extra wallet/documents in these pockets.
This is my glove for cold and wet weather. The Gore-Tex makes it really good for withstanding water.
Dakar Pro is my default glove for riding. It is comfortable and has protection for the hand a good grip. It withstands wind on the outher side but still vents on the inside and around the wrist.
Wool is the best material for base layers. It gives both warmth when it is cold and also cooling for when riding it hot weather.
Boxer shorts in wool is very comfortable. Easy to clean and dry when travelling.
Knee high wool socks are really good for adventure. Keeps cool when it is hot and warm when it is cold.
The Adventure boot has great protection and are also waterproof with Gore-Tex. When you are adventure riding you sometimes walk around in your boots and the Adventure GTX Boot are comfortable with a Michelin sole.
The F5 Koroyd is a light offroad helmet with great cooling ability and a special safety system called MIPS. This system consists of a low friction layer that reduce rotational motions on impact.
When riding offroad I use goggles to protect my eyes instead of the visor on the helmet. I always bring a pair of goggles on my journeys to be able to switch between the visor and goggles.
Dakar is light weight jacket with really good ventilation. It is perfect for offroad riding and it is even possible to remove the arms. The protection pads do not come with the jacket (since it is designed to be used with a protective armour), so i got them separate.
Just as the Badlands pants there are pockets on the side for carrying my survial kit. The pants have a long zipper for ventilation.
The Mojave Jersey is designed to handle really warm conditions and are great for active offroad riding.
The Mojave pant is made of mesh fabric with enforcements on the knee and other parts. This makes is perfect for warm weather and tough offroad riding.
The Klim Forecast Jacket is made of Gore-Tex and I use it as a shell layer against wind and rain.
The Klim Forecast pant is made of Gore-Tex and is easy to put on or take off since the zippers along the legs goes all the way up to the waist.
The Dakar glove is good for warm weather riding and when I ride offroad. It is basicly a MX/enduro glove but a bit sturdier.
The Mojave Glove is designed for really hot weather and has enforcements on exposed areas.
The Alpinestars Tech 7 Drystar is a waterproof MX/enduro boot that works good for offroad riding
My main navigation tool is a ordinary paper map. A GPS kan run out of power or break down. A paper map is also much easier to use when planning the route since it gives a good overview.
With my map I have a Silva compass. The Ranger S is a global compass and works all over the globe.
The Zumo XT is a GPS suited for motorcycles and it is possible to operate the touchscreen with gloves.
Today the mobiles are very good, but if you want that extra quality in the pictures you need a camera. The Canon M50 is a compact digital camera and very capable (4K etc.). The zoom lens of 18-150 mm is great in many situations.
The GoPro Hero 8 are one of the best action cameras on the market and it is possible to mount it on multiple places in your helmet and bike.
The DJI Mavic Air is a compact drone with some very usable functions. You can for example set it to follow you when riding on the bike and it folds in to a small transport box.
