I am wearing this helmet behind a tall (+3" over stock) windscreen on a Super Tenere. I'm 5'9".
For my 30 minute commute, I do not feel the need for earplugs like a have on previous helmets. Even with the top vent open for airflow. My commute includes about 20 minutes of highway speed.
Airflow is very noticeable with top vents open. I have not worn it in very hot temps yet. I don't feel any air moving from front chin vent due to wind screen. I leave rear exhaust vent open in cold weather to help pull air through chin vent to help with fogging.
The only fogging I get is to my glasses. The pin lock does its job just like on my other pin lock equipped helmets and the visor remains clear. On cold mornings I have to leave the visor up one notch to keep my glasses from fogging at slower than highway speeds. Once my speed increases, the rear vent pulls enough to stop my fogging issue.
The internal sunscreen works as advertised. This is my second helmet with this feature and is now a must-have for any future helmets.
I have a Shoei head and I have always worn a size large. The sizing on this one is no different.
Finish is excellent and all moving parts feel crisp and precise. I have not worn in rain yet to test the double seal around the visor.

AltRider Luggage Rack Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere The AltRider Luggage Rack for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z is greatly improved over the stock version, making it one of the first parts youll want to install on your new adventure bike. Designed to be strong for on or off road riding adventures, it is made from 3/16 inch (4.75 mm) aluminum and features side flanges for added rigidity and mounting points, as well as a completely redesigned bracket. This design also allows the luggage rack to be run in the low position (with out pillion seat or grab handles). It uses the same hardware, so there is nothing to lose. The AltRider Luggage Rack comes with a mounting bracket, made from 3/16 inch (4.75 mm) aluminum, which replaces the stock plastic mounting bracket and greatly increases the racks capacity. Between the bracket and rack, AltRider created a cubby that is 8.5 X 6 X 3. The cut-out pattern is perfect for creating a door with a bungee cord or ROK straps, making it a perfect glove box to stuff items in without the need to secure them. The rack itself is uniquely designed with a variety of cut-outs, so you can easily attach your bags with anything from straps to bungee cords to tie downs. If you want the option of using a top case, the AltRider Luggage Rack provides an interface for the Givi Monokey systems , allowing attachment with a mount kit (sold separately). The strong and versatile AltRider Luggage Rack for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z is a smart solution for packing up for your next ride, and can be used in either the standard or low position. Specifications Made from 3/16 inch (4.75 mm) anodized aluminum All stainless steel hardware Only compatible with the Givi Monokey top case system Height 3 inches Width 14 inches Depth 14 inches Weight 3 lbs Note Some images show the AltRider Givi Monokey Luggage Rack Kit , sold separately. Images show a laser-cut AltRider logo but product will feature a stamped logo.

This skid plate should suffice for the terrain the Super Tenere was made for. It probably won't withstand big rock hits with the full weight of the Tenere on it.
My only issue is with no easy way to change the oil filter without removing the plate. If doing just an oil change the plate can remain. This only adds another 10 minutes to an oil/filter job.

AltRider Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z Crash Bars Now that youre the proud owner of a Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z, you want crash bars to protect it. AltRider's are built from one inch stainless steel so theyll never rust, and feature beautiful hand TIG welds. In designing these crash bars, AltRider went through the trouble of maintaining the hidden connector in the front to yield a seamless system. Why is that important It means the energy of a hard impact on one side can be transferred throughout the bars and to the other side. The three mounts on one side dont have to take an entire impact load instead, it is distributed across six mount mounts so none of them are overwhelmed. All of this is important because the crash bars will not only protect the fairing in the case of a crash, but also the Super Teneres exposed radiator. AltRider also conducted a thorough study to identify the bikes contact points when on its side. This led to a crash bar design that offers a wide contact area between the crash bars and the ground. The other contact points will be the handlebar bar ends, and rear passenger peg protecting the fairing, engine, radiator, and brake and shifter lever. Additionally, AltRider ensured the glove box side panel will have plenty of clearance to be easily removed while bars are still installed. Specifications Stainless T-304 construction Hand TIG welding 1 inch diameter tubing for strength Height 15 inches Width 20 inches Depth 18 inches Weight 11.5 lbs

I have not had to test them out yet but they feel very sturdy.
A little tough to get on solo but doable. Following the install instructions and watching Altrider's video helped.
Getting the last side bolt in required quite a bit of pulling to get the hole lined up even with all other bolts still loose.
Right side access panel still comes off with bars installed.

Works as advertised. Goes on quick with locktight on the threads. Provides a nise stable platform in the loose stuff. Never felt the bike was going to sink in and tip over even when fully loaded.
Thick steel has not deformed at all over 9000 miles.

I need about 3 inches more heigth over the stock Super Tenere screen.
This screen did the trick. I am 5'9" with a 32" inseam. Sitting on the stock seat in the lower position I am in clean air.
The screen has taken a beating (including a frisbee atack and a parking garage arm coming down on it) with 9000 miles and it still looks good.

Purchased this jacket for cross country trip in August. It worked very well to keep me cool when it was hot.
I got caught in two heavy rain storms and the the internal liner kept me dry. The thermal liner did well down in the low 50s for an extended period. Any colder though and I would have needed the electric liner.
