Nice I just picked mine up as well, tested the Tiger Explorer, that was a sweet bike. Seemed a lot more street slanted than the Yamaha.

I think we will enjoy these S10's

Thanks! Now you tell me - after I have agreed to do riding with you!

Look at you. Not only back in the saddle but a tent tramp as well!
Of course we can figure out a place to put you. I'll set the sprinklers
to come on so you can shower too. I'm thoughtful that way.

The grandkid might let you stay in her house.

Tim many of us are envious of your garage. We likely will never get the 660 tenere in the states but we can get the KTM 690. I got a feeling the KTM would be like a hot girlfriend so fun to be with just not trust worthy.

And I have a new signature line! Sums up how I feel about KTMs perfectly. And hot girlfriends. She was fun unfortunately she loved penises in the most general of terms. And uhhh something about maintenance? The Tenere is that curvy nice girl. We're "just friends" during the week but I take her out on the weekends and run her ragged when none of my friends are watching.

And Tenere does DC. VIP parking at the Zoo.

You are right but I only had sportbikes until now and I have to learn how to loose grip and not to nuts because of that!

Perhaps it merely suggests that he can so aptly "Plumb" the depths of depravity?

Riding to investigate routes for the Romney Cycle event next month. There were times I felt like I was shooting motorcycle porn. So many great dirt roads between Romney and Elkins, WV. It was an awesome weekend.
