If you are a "Commuter sight see er with two up on occasion" I would say without a doubt the Super Tenere. I liked that bike better than any other big bike I have had. I had two F800gs and they just don't compare. The Super Tenere outshined that bike in every way. I know for sure it is faster, smoother, more stable, the traction control was better, the ABS was better, I loved the bike on mild off-road. I can't think of a way that it failed to the GS in any other way than fuel economy. Buy the Super Tenere. Yamaha of Southern IL has my old one for 11,000 I think.
