Congrats.....good price. Here in Az I checked with one dealer who,said they would go to around $13K however with TTL that will put it around $14,500 here in Arizona. I am continuing to shop around while making a decision. What are taxes and licensing in Tn? Have fun with it......

It starts at 9% then goes down a little over 5k then a little at 10k. ends up at 8 ish on this bike. I think I can get around it. PS I am AZ native, born in Scottsdale. Lived in TN 10 years cant ever move back, the roads in this area off the charts. Look on you tube Dragon hwy 129. I live 30 min from the road. 318 turns 11 miles.

Sitting on my Ars watching bikes go past me = BMW final drive pissing on the dirt. I have enjoyed enough Euro cool-aid.
Time for 24k valve adj, dealerships every 100 miles, O and no BS. = Tenere

Honestly, the only way I could consider the GS more dirt oriented than the S10 would be by reading their weight on the spec sheet. Off road the S10 is better suspended, has better geometry, better protected, overall more robust and feels a lot more like an oversized dirt bike than the BMW.

I'll second that.I had both a GS & have a Tenere. Tenere's traction control thing is incredible(had it on steeps in mud & snow--2 up). Tenere hasn't broken yet,either. Glory Days are here again.

Same here, that is backwards.

The S10 is a nuclear powered dirt bike that intimidates mere mortals
