Canuck test ride at Dunlop Charity event in Tonawanda

Finally got a test ride on a Super Tenere in Tonawanda,NY
No thanks to Yamaha Canada and their stupid static Super Tenere display at their demo rides
Many thanks to Yamaha USA,I can't buy one in the US,but guess where I will be buying most of my accessories and parts
Wasn't impressed or disappointed with the bike,need more time to evaluate properly
It felt like riding big smoothish thumper, at 60 mph it's chugging along at 3000 Rpm,very relaxed
Acceration was good enough for my slowing reflexes and limited skills
Didnt know what Mode or Traction Control Setting it was,I was too excited just to be able to ride one
I never intended to ride it off road,but from the feel of the bike,I will certainly try
Some buffeting from the windscreen
I think I made the right decision in buying one
Please try to make it out for the Charity event and mayb snag a test ride
