I love that front mono disc mod on the white one. Great looking rally bike.

As a matter of fact, the Canary motor actually becomes a non-entity, in other words it kind of fades away from consciousness while riding. I kind of like that. I find I get lulled into a rhythm by the motor that is good for munching miles.
This isn't the first time I've read similar thoughts regarding the motor. Can't help wondering if this isn't part of the reason test rides can be so underwhelming.

Looking forward to your XT660 build and trip reports.

If only we could have the XT660 in California USA.

Your subject: Alea jacta est.
I only know this phrase because I used to read Asterix and Obelix comics when I was young.

I hope the 660 is a better fit for you than the SuperT, it is a shame that the beast needs to go. I'm happy to see that you are going the modify the bejeezes out of that bike as well.

If I still had my childhood comics, I would have a garage full of different bikes all paid for in cash.

Comics...even the word brings back good memories.

I spoke to my dmv and the state and this is what I was told....

1) bill of sale or any paper showing you own the bike.
2) kph to mph speedo conversion. I would assume the tenere is like the S10 where you push a button.
3) odo calculated to miles
4) vehicle inspection by state patrol
5) insured

That will allow it to be registered and plated in Colorado. I specifically asked about bringing a bike from europe to Colorado and they said worst would be registering it as a custom bike without a vin. Easy and told me no worries.

Tet: hey bud!! Great to hear from you! I am riding again! How was your trip? I am hoping to come to europe with my wife in the next 3 years. I will definitely be riding and will stop by!
