Thanks.

Nothing magical.

No fancy fad diet.

I'm not a candidate for those.



Seems all I had to do was quit eating Little Debbie cake rolls and Apple Pie. (on a dare)



Ok ok, I quit eating junk.

Warning, it is slow loss. About 1lb a week. But next thing you know a year goes by.



And I still eat like a horse. As much as I want. But only stuff you grow or kill. Caveman-farmer food. Nothing "invented".



I'll stop blabbing. Sorry.

Actually, it would be easier for me in your country. Meat every meal. And beans. Drank too much expresso though. I got addicted.



Lots of Cowboy food.

I gave up booze on Dec. 1 and have been on a low carb diet since, which basically means meat, fish, vegetables, cheese and nuts. AKA no junk and little processed. The weight loss hasn't been rapid but that's ok as I'm in it for the long haul.

Well, to get back on the bike topic... I decided to shoot myself in a different environment to see what it could be to have a real custom.

NIce Pics.

You look like you've been on a diet.

For the last year or so, I have been thinking about the S10 and have been following this thread with interest. I`ve been enjoying the conversation found here. I finally made the "mistake" of test riding one at my dealer last week, and now am looking forward to picking up a new S10 this weekend. I have been under the impression that the bike is to big and heavy for adventure riding but found the low COG to make it feel much lighter than the specs indicate. As time has gone by, I have found that I most enjoy long distance rides, touring and exploring back roads. The S10 looks like a good match for this. Reliability in a bike is a major factor for me, I`d rather ride than wrench, and past experience with Yamaha has been great. I`m planning to trade my 919 in, and expand my horizons a bit.

I put 14,000 miles on my 2011 Ninja 1000, which was a fantastic motorcycle! But I learned that for the distances I needed to cover in a day (570 miles) at 80 mph and above, that I was arriving at my destination fairly tired. Plus, the buzzy nature of the four cylinder motor tended to wear on me as well.


Also, when I sought out roads like this, I was always worried about dumping the bike in the dirt and breaking all that expensive body work. Plus I had to slow down significantly when riding the Ninja in the dirt.


Once a friend convinced me to not spend any money on the Ninja to make it more touring oriented, I knew I needed a big adventure bike to get me places in more comfort and to be able to enjoy some dirt roads with some peace of mind. It was a revelation to step off the Super Tenere after a 570 mile day and feel like it was a 200 mile ride.

Beautiful pictures! I considered trading the 919 for the Ninja 1000, to have better wind protection and to have ABS. The lure of any road travel made me decide on the S10 though. It is good to have some room to stretch too; my 6'2" frame is a little cramped on most sportbikes.

Yep sounds like your ready for a Tenere. You may enjoy the flashed ECU too really wakes the motor and money well spent. I really appreciate the bike the longer I have it. 2 years and 20,000 miles and I'm still infatuated.Congratulations!!!

I got to run the new KTM 1190R some more today. I was laughing most of the time.
Figured out how to turn the TC off and sport mode. Just pure shits and giggles.

I found an empty freeway on ramp with a subtle incline. I tried to just run it
hard through a few gears. Almost came over in first, backed off and rolled it
hard in second same thing. What a performance animal!

Vibes are very minimal and the shifting is one of the smoothest I can remember.

With my 32 inch inseam it's too tall for me. I was almost tippy toed at stop lights.
Loaded or with a passenger I would really have to pay attention not to have an
off balance tip over.

It doesn't look it but I think the knee to tank ratio is wider than the Tenere.

Overall I have to give it big WOW! They still have a ways to go to earn
my trust but that sure is a damn fun bike.

My wheel better be back soon. I'm starting to forget what the Tenere is like.

XT1200=no regrets. I am crazy for the 1190, MTS, 950SM, RSV...but, the Tenere> works for me! Would not trade it now, at first...not so sure. A real good bike!
