Selling the black ones so girls will talk to them again or they're selling any of the first year
colors to get the new white one.

Perhaps the premium gas suggestion became a deal breaker.
Felt guilty they never had a reason to go back to the dealer.
Touratech wasn't meeting their needs.
Starbucks discount card wasn't valid with a Tenere.
Had to sell to save a relationship. Always out riding.
Afraid the grin would become permanant if they kept it.
Suddenly had nothing to bitch about with riding buddies.
Too intimidated after the fuse mod.
Some people need to be in an abusive relationship, not enough drama.
Don't like having KLR owners as groupies.

And there are some that just have to have a new bike.. LOL

It does not make a difference if you buy a new or used bike. The Tenere is a really great bike and will take you were you want to go.
Never had a problem other than the recall fuel pump o-ring.
Oh, and the headlight wires heating up. Fixed that..

I think the hard start is the owner/operator problem and has nothing to do with the bike.

That''s about it, buy the bike and ride it.
Ya know, if you lived closer & wanted to trade for a KLR, I'd be tempted! But I'm way up in Lewisville.

You still didn't get it. I said how many 2012 R1200GS not how many R1200GS. The answer to my question is 0,zero,none,nada,not any,etc.

Here's a laugh

I was talking to the local BMW dealer about a 2012 Triumph Explorer he had taken in trade. I commented that I thought that I would probably be more interested in a Super Tenere. He responded that they were just dressed up KLR's. Some guys will say anything to get a sale. - Bob

You kidding? The economy sucks and we re-elected the same asshat that fucked it up in the first place. I feel good that the S10 doesn't have a payment, even though that means I took it in the shorts on trade in value. Not everyone is so lucky.

It sucks when your riding buddies will only go to the Starbucks.

Thankfully, I ride with older guys that don't like bad coffee. And my wife, that likes to go far.

I wanna' start this post by making clear that I'm not even close to being drunk off the ST Kool-Aid.

But, despite that, I see your dealer's take, on the ST, as a compliment.

Just to make sure I understand correctly, according to your dealer (who is trying sell you some piece of eurotrash), the ST is a "dressed up", ultra-reliable, easy to maintain, gas-it-&-go, RTW motorcycle.

Alrighty...I'll take that.


You shoulda' gotten a pic with that guy. I think he could, quite possibly, be your next Senator.

Some call it nudity, I call it art. Others would call it a one way ticket to ban camp.

Been there, done that. You'll now never know.
