Played defense, bad knees and a blue Super Tenere....your in.

The bike just gets better over time, where other bikes turn back the Super T will take you in.

Good choice, welcome!

Well, Im still 40, but the rest applies.

Told my wife yesterday, I have been riding bikes for 20 plus years, everything from sport bikes, sport tourers, HDs, Wings, etc and in 2 days this has become my favorite bike of all time. Most fun I have ever had on two wheels.
It does tend to do that.

Of course, I'll have to hope DaFoole doesn't see it and make a ______ of himself again. At least we know why he got his black eye.

Have been spending some time over at the KTM forum reading about the upcoming KTM 1190. Man, those guys have drank the Kool-AId. I believe I saw one post talking about a $1,000 service visit for the upcoming KTM.

Nothing like an "Aussie Freeway" riding a Super Ten.

Is it just me or do they seem to have a lot of issues with their bikes. Fuel pumps, FI, servicing...etc

I'm pretty sure it's just you. Everyone knows they are the Honda of perfomance bikes.
Well, you did forget to mention the clutch thing.

Just like anything a little exotic or erotic, ya gotta pay to play. Seems like a lot
of owners are more than willing to put up with some ownership hassle to have
the performance grin factor. See Buell for more information.

Hi from a neighbor of yours, Lou. I am in Hillsboro and bought the first Tenere from Niehaus, after waiting 11 months for it to come in. I still help out around the shop, so ask for me if you are down there. I just got back from a week of riding the great Ozark roads in AR and MO, a bit over 2000 miles last week. I am just short of 18,000 miles on mine and loving it more every day.

Hey Fred, yeah they said you were their resident Tenere expert. I am sure I will have plenty of questions. Mostly which mods have worked for you and which havent. lol

stay safe
