Well, enjoy it. I know many are.

I've definitely enjoyed your posts and adventures, Pluric!

I suspect it is being sold as a demo. Dealers get a credit from the factory. I wonder about the low mileage. I thought it had to be 2500 miles.

I heard that Yamaha has lost about 20% of it dealers ( don't know if this is just USA or worldwide) and that there is a internal auction within Yamaha that dealers can bid on bikes that come from these dealers. These bikes are sold with one of two types of warranty's. Mechanical and Full. The full is like any bike you get from the dealer floor. The mechanical covers only those items that make the bike move, stop etc. Nothing cosmetic.

Oh you haven't noticed the "New and improved" me??? Since being post nuetered I just find my
new vent is to PM GB with the most trivial stuff I can think of.

The weather is breaking here. I may actually have to go ride the thing.

Have to check if I still have Woody's on speed dial and an open account.

Uh, interested in a project bike? I think I'll be finally moving on from the Uly, I'll give you a special Utard deal on that. What have you been saying to annoy the Moderators?

It's interesting you can call a Uly rider an inbred, sheep shagging, pedophile, knob sucking, rainbow loving,
unicorn tatto wearing, front of the the gay pride parade, assless chap chumps and no one says a thing.

Buuuuuuttt, mention certain color Tenere bikes (raven) may have an ulterior agenda and dems fightn' words.

Based on your threads with your Buell experience all I can say is it's about time. What are you leaning
towards? KTM, Ducati, Ural, Royal Enfield? You know something you can just put a key in and ride?

For the kind of person I am, a raving liberal atheist quasi-alcoholic tree hugging anti gun foodie, Washington is in almost every way a better placer to live than Utah. The one exception to this is that Utah has far more and better opportunities for off road riding. My riding here is, with the rare exception of the exploration of the occasional forest service gravel road, on the tarmac. Yet, I still prefer the 'adventure' class bike because I prefer the ergonomics and hey, it looks great outside of a Starbucks. Based on all that, I'm down to the short strokes on either a Super Tenere or the Triumph Tiger Explorer. I like the Tiger a bit more and the fact that the S10 is generally considered better off piste isn't a big deal to me. There's a dealer not too far from here that carries both bikes, so I intend to do a final test ride comparison perhaps as soon as this afternoon. On the other hand I'm such a cheap bastard I may just buy another Uly for parts. We'll see.

Sounds like a win/win. The parts bike option sounds like you are back where you started
only with less garage space.

I was down looking at a Tenere at the Yamaha dealer today. They quoted a price of $16,000 out the door for a 2013 with tall windscreen, bags and heated grips.

Seat height is much much lower then my GS, I wonder what the ground clearance is?

How well do these bikes handle on the road? Do you think they handle as well as a BMW?

Never had a tank slapper.

Off road yes, on road not as sharp. The LC has been nudged a bit more toward tarmac so the European press will salivate a bit more. Both great bikes. BMW is still the recall king though.

That info is just scraped from the interwebs. Haven't ridden an wasser yet though. Thought the older model was "very BMW" but didn't do anything much me for the extra 7K it costs here. If the older one was the same price I may have considered it.

Twinrider will have a better idea on the new one.

With the stock tires the Tenere is well planted, stable and feels very confident in corners.
I swapped bikes with my Beemer buddy and liked his as well. It felt lower and a little more
cramped to me. His GS felt more like a sport standard with wider bars. The Tenere was higher
and has a large dirt bike feeling.

Having quasi raced with him through the twisties outside of Cabo I have to say I was a little
nervous with the K60s. I also felt the high speed stability was sacrificed with K60s.

I've said it before, I enjoyed the Tenere over the FJR in the twisties. Just doesn't have the OMG
factor in the motor.
