Up to 40 km's now , still good

Although the dealer did not do a proper PDI , i found one of the swingarm protectors not bolted down at all

Needless to say spending the day going over every nut an bolt

sat in my garage last night just admiring the bike , it really is sexy

List price here in Austria is €9000. We have a stupid special vehicle tax in addition to 20% VAT, though.

The Ténéré is not selling well at all, though (wonder why...), so I have seen them marked down to €7200.

Aw, don't rub their noses in it Fozzy! - there is always a better deal, but it does seem that for once the UK got the bikes at the best price!

If anyone thinks they pay over the odds, then you ought to check out the prices here in Norway.
A new Tenere without any extras will set you back just under 13000 euros! And that is cheap for Norway. You can only imagine what a bimmer will cost you. Still I was one of the stupid ones, and bought a brand new Ten and I love it. Its only money (that I dont have)! You only live once, and I new I would regret not getting one far more than getting one.

TBM this month pits the Tenere against the TA, in the Pyrenees. Interesting reading.

Guess i was lucky had the cash rang around for a few days asking for the best deals and played each dealer off each other, then bought locally, they were shifting 08 models as 09 models were due out, there were a few dealers on ebay at the time selling them roughly for that, its a 08 on 09 plates, but who cares.

mind you with all the extras now fitted its cost me a fortune :(

I don't think we'll see the Tenere in the U.S. until our currency stabilizes. Why would a Japan based company want anymore shrinking U.S. Dollars?

When it 'stabilizes' as you put it, the Ten will cost over USD 20,000

For all our sake lets hope not!

If it's that bad then everything will be in the toilet and bikes will be the last thing on our minds.....
