Are the earphones any good? They claim that they are self-cancelling like Bose headphones.

2014 Tenere

I looked at the '14 ES for 15,100...plus state sales tax. I think the basic '14 was 14,100. Why buy an older bike without the "fixes" and cruise control for a grand or two less. I wouldn't!

If anyone can build this bike at this weight it will be Honda. Say what you want about Honda their fit and finish is the best!
