I don't think anyone here is saying that a KLR is a better bike, but come on, to say things like power, weight, and price don't matter is a bit of a stretch.
At double the price of a KLR, the Tenere isn't exactly competing. The price and performance is closer to a KTM 690 in some form, no?
Not trying to be johnny raincloud here - it IS a sweet looking bike, I'm just saying I'm not going to sign a petition since I'm not in the market.
I wonder how many of you who signed would ACTUALLY put pen to paper and take the bike home in 2011 if she came stateside, or are just signing b/c it's a sweet bike.

Numbers are shit.
In stock form it pisses all over the current KLR, which is it's only direct rival in the US...
