lookin awful studly there,pluric....robbing that cradle & all. Or that your daughter? As for paying the new price on a PDP Tenere, you could be buying a BMW. Thank the Lord for the blessing you are about to recieve--from Japan. I paid $12,500 for my Tenere, would gladly pay the new price if I had to. I had a much more expensive GS12. Yuck.

Studly? You must really be squinting on that one.

I did cradle rob. She's five years younger and a hundred years better looking.



On the Wind River ride it was a couples ride to Jackson we do anually.
On the way home we stopped at my summer home and they wanted to
try trail riding. Isn't it always funner to trash someone elses shit?

It was fun and for some a first time.







They did help clean it all up.

My Wee seems to "Sip" fuel. I haven't checked in awhile, but at last check 60 MPG (at an avg elevation of 7200 ft)!
I saw the Super Tenere in person weeks back and then up close at the dealership. That beast is one of the best looking DS bikes on the market. And after sitting on one in the showroom I was instantly addicted.
Guess I'm gonna have to man-up and sell the Wee.

Damn Pluric, The Winds, North Rim, Grand Staircase Escalante, Burr Trail, etc., and you don't even have the K60s on it yet.

You're getting to be a hard man to please.

Mine are waiting for me across the Bay here. I'm heading to Baja first week in April. with a friend who's riding an F800GS. He's skeptical about the big S10 - I'll send him a link to your pics.

Shoot, all these pics are bumming me out! I've got to sell my decked out ST after having suffered a good spill on my DR 650, that resulted in neck surgery (fuse with titanium plate and "donor" bones), and upcoming, shoulder surgery for a massive tear. It's a shame because of the break in care/maintenance I took with the bike and the big bucks I put into it. 3K miles. All easy highway stuff, no off road at all. I'm sick about it, but have to go this route. It'll be up on the sale thread in a few weeks. This was to be my last motorcycle. I love the bike. Just can't take the chance of screwing up my spine and end up in a wheelchair.

The Super Ten is the best and most fun all around bike I've ever owned. I've ridden just about every brand built over the past 40 yrs (including the oil head BMW's).

I don't know where I'm going to go from here. A trike type bike may be all that I can do going forwards.

So sorry to hear about this - are you absolutely sure? Doctor's orders? Don't give up.

hay Stromdog, I was about to suggest a sidecar when pluric posted the one above. Really,look into it. BUT, get a book on sidecar riding as they ARE different . That will keep you out of trouble. They are lottsa fun but DIFFERENT. I had one for my dog. We had a blast.Went trails (wide ones) with it and everything. GOOD LUCK ! Sorry to about your accident but you ain't dead. Hang in there. Better days ahead.

It wouldn't have to be a full sidecar. Just one of these platform setups would be nice.
I did forget to mention best to you on your recovery.

Sorry to hear that Mate.

After your recovery you may be able to look at a XT900Z. with side car, if the Biking gods are good.

All the best and chin up.
