I'm not original though. SupahfliD was the first guy to ride a big bike down those steps. He was on a KTM 990 though. I knew if I didn't do it, I'd catch hell from him.

Certainly not near as exotic as most places here but it makes a nice touring bike also.

This is a bit like the first time I saw a ST in the dealer. I take it on the ground to see if I could lift it easily. You should have seen his face…

I remember that video.

All pretty easy stuff, I'm getting really good at doing the last bit, where you stop and place the bike on the side stand.

Congrats!

The Super Tenere is an outstanding machine. Yamaha hit a grand slam with this bike.
