Just cos it's new doesn't mean it's good looking!

Enjoy.
Don't worry, I totally agree with you - some of the best looking bikes are the old ones - just that the Penton was not one of them! xx

Glad you like it Pera! - If you get one, I'm sure you won't be disappointed... x

My colour scheme was done for the Heroes-Legend rally this year, as a homage to the original Tenere's...

Anyway your bike looks delicious. Im sure Ill get one soon. Ive tested it on road and with a little work it will be fine off road. Ill put my TT600, that died three weeks ago at Morocco, front suspension that works fine and with the rear suspension ill have to work more. I think Ill enjoy it very much.

IMO, we all should try to be more coherent with the thread title & scope, that basically consists in trying to appoint the best LOOKING dirt bike

Indeed I believe it would be hard to find a unique winner, therefore I've suggested to nominate one bike per each macro category: MX, Trial, Rally, Dual Sport, Scramblers, etc..

Hope this helps

Cheers,
SAM
