I have read most of this thread and you seem very satisfied with your Teneres! Many of the ones I have seen for sale in the FM are being sold due to job, money or "wanting a smaller bike" issues. Besides the weight, I have heard nothing but good things about the S10. I have corresponded via PM to ask some questions from a couple of you and I thank you for your time.
Anyways, I am posting to request your eyes and ears. I have narrowed my hunt to a few models, of course the S10 being in the top three along with the F800GS and the 800 Tiger. The S10 gets many bonus points over the other two due to tubeless tires, shaft drive, four dealers within 30 minutes, legendary Yamaha reliability and price!
I keep my eyes on CL, eBay and the Flea Market every day, but if any of you have or hear of any S10's for sale in the lower 48 states, please send me a PM, thanks!
P.S. The best new deal I have found is $11,499+Tax, title, tag on a leftover 2012.
Hell, I don't know if this is proper or not. But take a look at the for sale section of www.yamahasupertenere.com
. There are several for sale over there. Including a couple with some nice Micatech bags on them. In otherwords, they are already pre-farkled.
Since you are in VA, you could always go over the Romney Cycles in Romeny WV. Not to far away, and they usually have some pretty good prices.
