earphones?

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

extended warranty....

I rarely buy extended warranty deals but...for $400 for four more years...I think it will be worth it. I just bought the new 2014 ES. With all the "electronic" stuff it would not take long to have a...

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!

An 400 pound bike with 100 hp would be....perfect!

It is too bad that Yamaha does not import the 650 Tenere. It is a great bike. I've seen them in S.A. It is everything a KLR wants to be!
