Enjoying the thread. After reading enough TDM and Tenere threads, I might have even gained an appreciation of the styling as well as function.

Wasn't there a version of the TDM that had the mufflers running under the seat or am I imagining that?

Well,definately you won't regret a bike that is quite superb in every way,yet reliable and low cost.

After close to 5yrs owning the TDM,i had to sell it to make way for a 4wheeler as the little one just pops out.

Well,after I had sold my Fatdero,curiousity landed me on a '96 GS1100.And guess what?
2weeks is all that it takes for me to kill that jabroni.Right at the end of this session.

I fall at the end of the video on a tight deep sand section due to the 1st gear snapped...kaboom!!

Nonsense eh?


Oh,and welcome...

Yup! I remember the first time I saw a TDM was several years ago on the way to Sugo raceway in Sendai. I was on my YZF1000R and my riding bud was on a ZX7. We were on the expressway and not really pushing it, but weren't moving slow either. A group of Japanese riders decided they wanted to play and kinda/sorta buzzed us when we weren't expecting it. Among them was this goofy looking bike with two high mounted mufflers in the back. We blew by them in a return volley before pulling over to rest. My riding bud said he was 'surprised the TDM could go that fast.' I had no idea what that bike was before he said that.

This is one of those " seemed like a good idea at the time" kind of things. I saw pictures somewhere of a TDM1200 ( supposedly the sibling of the Tenere. Anyone else seen or heard about this. I figured you guys would be all over it.
Also, is your chain normally that loose, or did it fall off because of the rocks?

It is a little bit too loose at that picture. I keep the chain pretty loose as I ride a lot offroad and bottom out my rear suspension quite often. If I keep the chain according to the manual it is too tight when the rear suspension is fully compressed.
