Hey pluric,yer STILL at it! Bout all you know about us raven riders is what our butts look like as we whiz past you blueboys. Oh well.
Hey, I brought my tenere from Idaho for a visit in Ohio.Been putt-putting back roads here.Leaves are turning. it's freekin GORGEOUS out here in the Midwest.Had no idea.
I ride about all dirt in rural Idaho but have been on dirt & paved backroads here in Ohio. 1st time I noticed the engine growl this tenere has on pavement. Wish it was quieter.
LOTS of Harley's here. Gosh,they're LOUD. A Yamaha dealer here says 47% of bikes sold are Hardly Ablesons & they are going to straight pipes for even more damn racket. What the hellz wrong with those chromosexual fellers ,anyways. Oughtta be a law.......

Hey pluric. You seem to be un-busy today.

Are you one of the Guvment people with a few days off to look for photos?

Nope. One of those real estate guys with a sloooowwwww day. Even dropped by the
Yamaha dealer to check out the new Viking. Much wider than my Rhino.

Question

Why doesn't Yamaha put a Tenere motor in a new sports Rhino chassis and create a new beast?

Dealer said Yamaha took the brunt of early lawsuits on the sideXside early tip over issues.
Soured them on the sidexside stuff that they had the market share of at first.

Now with the popularity of UTVs they are coming back with new models. They claim a new one every
year for the next five years. The utility is still the largest market share so their first new model
remake makes sense to target that.

With all they neat snowmobile motors they have one of those would make better sense to drop
in a performance UTV than the gutless Tenere twin.

I put a BMW style outlet here. You just have the SAE plug pig tail with a BMW plug on the end.
This outlet is controlled by a Heattroller to adjust the temp I want.

That new Viking is damn nice looking. Popular as the Polaris UTV's are up here in my neck of the woods, I just can't get past that they all look like farm implements, the Rzr excepted. If you get a chance go check out the Can-Am Commander. Nice ride...
