Did you spring for the bag liners? It makes it real handy to carry your stuff in a hotel or put it all in a tent real quick. Nice boxes you'll enjoy them

No, I shot my wad (Pluricism) on the kit, couldn't recover fast enough to splurge again on the liners.
Anyway, isn't that what plastic grocery bags are for, Pannier liners?

I did save enough from no shipping, taxes (Oregon res) and a discount (thanks Matt) to add the TouraTech skid pan for free!

Supposed to be a 100 mi home from the dealer. Turned into 260 after a little ride through the mountains.

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.

Boulder

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.

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.
