Okay, so the only people available for the survey were my two year old grand child
You know, in about 17 years, she's going to be posing for some John Deere or other similar calendar and thinking "Whoa! Deja vu!! This seems so familiar!"

You're right though, the crash bars can wait. Buuuut, I'm contemplating the Rumbux system, which means I'd buy them together. Or the H&B Plate and SWM Bars, then I could buy them separate (and save $100). Aww dammit this question again.

Nevermind! Ride On!
Option - Buy the Rumbux lower crash bars/skid plate and wait on the upper bars until you're ready. You get some side protection, the oem tip over plastic guards stay in place, and you can add what ever you want later, including the Rumbux upper hoop with it's greater side protection.

What that doesn't give you is radiator protection if you dump hard and go all the way over or bounce off a tree or big rock. What it does give you is excellent sump protection, along with exhaust, O2 sensor, water pump protection and places to mount highway pegs, lights, etc.

Hi,
I helped to develop this decal kit for the Super T and yesterday they used my bike as a “top model” for the promo pictures.
They are very thick vinyl so not only they are decorative, they also protect the bike.
There are different options and colors, more info in:

It's normally pretty easy to sort out the trollers from the ones who really want to know about the bike.

It is fun to see how fast the wagons circle in defense of outrageous remarks. We are a protective group.

You know what they say about the green ones...

As far as your tank paint issue I found riding with pants on solves it.

The Tenere’ is one of those bikes that doesn’t work well because of itself; it works well in spite of itself.

It also proves that you can probably take any street bike out there throw a 6-gallon fuel tank on it and call it an Adventure Touring bike. Re-branding is a great way to move product. It not that the bike is that bad for it’s purpose (a commuter bike you don’t have to feel bad if you don’t wash it), it’s just that it could have been so much more if Yamaha wanted. Instead Yamaha saw a big “Wanna-be-like-those-BMW-guys” type of market in the USA and filled the bill with the S10. If they had built the bike to it’s off road potential they probably wouldn’t have sold 1/10th of the bikes. Not because of price but because it wouldn’t appeal to such a wide range of wanna be’s.

So quick, before you buy your next aftermarket band-aid for this street bike, hoist a full, frosty mug of S10 Kool-Aid boys and enjoy your ride on your All Roads Adventure Touring (whatever that means) super bike.

But the question then still remains...

If you dislike the Super Tenere so much, and think it is so poorly designed, so poorly engineered, so poorly developed, so poorly executed, etc., etc., etc....

Then why are you here?

The most obvious answer is you're just a troll, but I'd love to hear you describe your reasons.
