How'd you swing the ride on the Super Tenere? Thought they were special order only.

Sunday..

Non stop rain and work = no riding.
Today was almost all sun and play.

I woke up with all the normal intentions however..
Coffee, emails, invoices, Work……..wait, Is that SUN outside??
And what ?
An Adv'er on his way through will be in town at 11?
And what?
I may get to ride the super tenere?

Well, Let's roll……

I told you running around doing wheelies would get you in trouble over there.

A big thanks to G&B Motorsports here in Petaluma for throwing caution to the wind and letting me ride the 2012 Super Tenere!



Now, if I could only figure out where the kick start is………

Color Scheme...

Does it come in BLACK ?

How does it compare with your current #1 ?

Looks like it wants to be a Tiger but hasn't got the style... (It lacks the lines!)...

Great pix. I'm interested to hear how the Tenere "feels", weight-wise, when you're on it. I think it's listed as heavier than the Tiger, but I wonder how it seems when you're riding it.

I've tested the Tiger, and hope to grab a ride on the Tenere at some point.

i'd love to know the same....i think replacing the exhaust might save a significant amount of weight...WOW THAT THING IS BIG!

(a break from all the boy drool at the very least )

I found this bike, the Yamaha, VERY easy to ride.
Felt 'light' to me even though it def has the wt to it.
Not as smooth as the triple, because well, it's not a triple.....

It just doesnt have that Tiger Growl!

One pet peeve I have with that bike are those darn cables that go right in front of hte instrument cluster.....Couldnt the designers found a better placement so that they wouldnt block your view?

I did find the bike had a more relaxed leg placement than my Tiger. Definetely better for those mega-mile days if your tall.

Last autumn, whilst looking for a replacement for my ageing TL1000S, I test-rode the Honda CB1000R, KTM 990 SMR and SMT, Tiger 1050 and the Super Ten. The Yam was well-balanced with good mid range and responded well to higher revs too. In fact it could hustle along pretty well and I agree with TDP in that it was easy to ride. It handled well enough and disguised its bulk once on the move. IMHO however, it just wasn't anything special and was just too damned expensive. There was only one bike on the list that I didn't want to stop riding and only one that I didn't want to take back! If the paperwork is sorted, I pick up my Tiger this weekend! Woohoo!
