What is your honest opinion of the Tenere as compared to that BMW?

The one in the mud was brand new. Yellow sticker and everything. First time off road.
I have a small reputation for riding a little hard and he would not let me try is bike.

The other one was new to that owner and his first time off road as well. I didn't ask.

The third GS1200 on the ride was the guy who put the ride together. I was impressed with his
pace and he made it fun to ride. Since I wasn't exactly sure where we were going I let him lead.

To avoid dust several times I followed at his rear wheel and to the side. I was surprised how his
bike looked to be a handful and I think me tailgating made him up the pace. I felt the Tenere was
easier to ride watching his twitch and brake into corners.

So the fact is I never got anyone to trade me bikes. I like swapping rides to get a feel for other bikes.
Perfect chance to get a feel for late model BMWs in a really good test area....just didn't get the hands
on ride I would have liked.

I can say the BMW guys were VERY happy with their bikes and the one had just traded in his 1150GS
with over 80,000 miles and no major mechanical failures. Felt his new 1200 was much improved in the
power department and handled well for him. On pavement he was really fun to chase.

Side note. When I first bought my Tenere I was on a couples ride. The single up Strom rider would
beat my double upped Tenere on the flats high speed roll ons. It wasn't even close. I've since had
the ECU reflashed and the clutch mod plus 8,000 more miles on it. The tables were turned
this time. The Tenere out ran the Strom. On the pavement I was usually ahead of he BMWs so I
didn't get the chance to roll on compare.

It's all good until the Ducati shows up on the tarmac.

Nice report. Thanks for taking the time to put it together. Great riding out that way. Was in the area for the RMAR Rally in August. Can't wait to get back.

Looks like the TENERE handled every thing in stride.

Make a 5mm stainless bottom skid plate with a large piece of conveyer belt padding. Works like a charm. Skid over rocks with ease. Prevention is better than cure;-)

As long as you don't attach it the same way the OEM does...
