Oh no, do a search!

Yes - Nick Sanders rode from the top of NA to the bottom of SA without any adverse impacts. Though, by choice I use premium.
It depends - personal preference. I find it doable, 500 miles on the stock seat. For a stock seat, IMO, it's pretty good.
It depends - I depends on how much wind you want. Some people don't mind it, others change it. I went aftermarket (as I had one with the bike when I bought it used) and installed a madstad bracket - works great for me.
Ok, we get it. You're lazy.

Another resource you can look at: www.yamahasupertenere.com

Then I guess I'm too lazy, slothful, lackadaisical, somnolent, lethargic, torpid, and uninterested to try help answer your questions!

Keep the Vstrom.

Rated for 91 octane, but some people do run reg w/o issues, unless it's hot and/or they flog it a lot.
No, not for most people, but if you weight 135 lbs, it might be ok for you.
Many, but not all, change or modify the wind screen situation.

Huh, then you should have gone over to the Super Tenere forum instead of posting in the vague and general ADV thread with 1400 pages. A lot more specific threads there.

Nah, keep the Vstrom. You don't want the heavier, uses more gas, more expensive Super Ten. You'd miss all that quality time oiling the chain.

The reasone your decal look different is that you have them on wrong. Swap them left to right and then it will flow on the tank nicely

Negative Ghost Rider....................

They are not on incorrect, they are different then any Worldcrosser tank stickers I've ever seen.. The ones I've seen and the ones pictured on the YAMAHA package that these ones came in are different (see video) then the ones I have/received... Don't even look similar----

I'm actually very happy with the ones I got so its all good......

Jaumev is the resident forum sticker expert. His say is final.

I had heard Yamaha had a special dyslexic sticker pack made to pass
strict US equal opportunity laws. Have to keep an even playing field you know.

Same reason certain colors are sexual preference oriented to avoid discrimination lawsuits.
Frankly I'm surprised the Raven Teneres don't come with cruise control so the limp wrists
can have a throttle break.
