Then sure the lighter is better argument holds truth. I've not found a regular riding trail that I wouldn't
take the Tenere on. A few WTF was I thinking too.

How big are you?

Smaller guys seem a little intimidated by the thought of having to pick up the Tenere. I've not
ridden the 880r, but been on rides with one and I was on a Tenere. Who knows if it's rider or
bike difference?, the Tenere ate it up. Never saw it on the pavement either. What are you going
to use it for the rest of the time? Two up, a lot of slab, loaded? If you're buying either one for
long off road use I'd look at another color.
