The Yamaha Tenere turned 25 this year, for this reason we will run an Festival in Port St. Johns.

All Adventure Bikers are welcome. Our plan is to fill an weekend with and around Yamaha Tenere`s and Adventure bikes. On Thursday there will be outrides in Port Shepstone and in Coffee Bay. On Friday Tim of Amapondo Backpackers will lead the southern bikers from Coffee Bay on the senic route to Port St. Johns. Thomas of Moto Zulu will lead the northern bikers from Port Shepstone on senic gravel roads to Port St. Johns.

There will be fantastic outrides around Port St. Johns on Saturday.

We will also vote the most original and the best customized Tenere 34L / 1VJ / 3AJ models.

We want to print T-Shirts for the Festival, the shirts you have to book in advance.

Watch www.zulu.mx.ms for updates on the Tenere Festival
