Well I sold my DR today to please the wife Gods. So now she is a little more happy about The Tenere in the stable.

But man I sure wanted this in my garage for a great all around tag team!

Good bye old faithful and hello new faithful....



Hey Pluric I was around your side of town today about 1 pm. I went for a ride to SL with my Daughter and we stopped and ate at that Mexican place called Mias, or something like that. West of the freeway in bountiful. Just right off the freeway.
Thought of you for .035 seconds then ate my smothered burrito!!

Great day for a ride. Daughter loves the bike!

Ya not such a great Tenere pic for the pic section. It will get better with actual on the road or dirt pics.

Bountiful is too far North.

My son and I were on the SV 650s today so no pics either (even though one is blue)

We hit a hill together and both tried to out wheelie each other. I saw his hit the point
of almost no return and then panic drop the front hard. I think he left something similar to your
smothered burrito on the seat.

This is the picture thread, isn't it?
Niiiiice!! Love my blue bike, but the anti-black and the grey are pretty sweet. The only thing I'd tweek is I'd probabably break up that vast expanse of white on the fuel thank with black tank protectors and possibly a WC sticker kit.

Almost bought the white VFR but got the next gen red instead so that's why I really wanted the white. Tried to buy the Tech-Spec tank pads like I have on my Triumph but it looks like they don't take Credit Cards anymore. Going to call in the AM.
Like the WC kit but I run a tank bag 99% of the time anyway.

Can't wait to start packing on the miles!

I stopped into a dealer in Shawnee, OK last week. They had two of these white ones in captivity there. Gorgeous!!

I'll be pulling the trigger on a Tenere later this year. Till then, I'll drool over your bikes.

Bluhduh What the heck?

Apparently, I still haven't gotten the knack of this silly photo posting thing.
Oh well....it's blue 2012 model. I'm sure you've probably seen one before.
Mine looks just like that one.
