RUST magazine: Rust#13

RUST tests the new SWMs, finds 10 reasons to love Yamaha’s Super Ténéré, files part of one of its W2D story – and starts a twinshock restoration! SWM circa 2016 is a rare mix – 1970s branding and colourways, 2012 technology and 2004 pricing. It’s enough to keep a time traveller very busy. But is it enough to keep a 2016 trail/enduro enthusiast satisfied? Yamaha’s Super Ténéré has been living life in the shadows given the excitement over the latest super-adventure launches. RUST argues that shouldn’t be and finds ten good reasons why you should give Big Blue your serious consideration. At last… our Welsh Two Day Enduro story begins. Editor JB fettles his WR250F in preparation – a bigger job than he anticipated. Not content with workshop time on the WR, JB is starting on a classic project – breathing new life into a tired old Honda TLR250 twinshock. The story starts here. Plus Chris Evans ponders tyre changing options in the South of France, we look at Scott’s answer to the Oakley Airbrake – the Prospect. Plus the usual gallery and editorial stuff. Enjoy your riding – and reading! Best JON BENTMAN (Editor, RUST)
