yup it actually is quite a Compact Beast, today at Louis Louis, the strangest thing happened, a perfectly Mint (well a lefty scratch) original Super Tenere was waiting for a comparomater© picture ;-)



Sorry for the skewed picture, but there is a horrible steel pipe in front of the parking lot.

As it happens all good things come to an end. End of May there was the Ténéré-Day at the German Yamaha dealers. After a testride, I traded my trusty XT660Z with near to 20 tkm on the clock



against the new XT1200Z Ténéré.



That's me



and my view I love a lot



Cruising at reasonable speed, low RPM and pleasant fuel consumption. Only changes up to now is this



During some green laning I hit a stone with the frontwheel, size of a middle cobblestone, which was swirled against the bash plate then. The result remembers me a little to these Japanese papercrafts

Gruss

Heres a few pics of the beastie on its first dirt ride

Too clean

Thats better, although i had to hunt down some mud puddles on purpose, so now it looks "hardcore"




A bit bloody cold this morning, luckily we'd drunk a fair bit of anti-freeze last night

That is a 2006 Kawasaki KLE500. Quite an impressive machine actually, i didn't realise that they made them and i have to wonder why they didn't make more, i think the Versys is the bike that replaced this one. It uses the GPZ500 parallel twin engine slightly detuned i believe.

Aaaah! OK, I didn't know Kawi was still building he KLE in 2006. The syling has changed from the KLE I'm familiar with. The headlight looks very z1000ish, but you could tell by the suspension (and tires) that it's no Z.

My dealer has an older KLE500 and a KLE250 for sale. I've always thought the bikes had a lot of character, but couldn't quite bring myself to own one.

Good stuff...thanks

The screen should be replaced asap, it doesn't give me any wind protection for my 193 (6'4 ft) frame. I will order the taller screen + additional side deflectors. The rest ...it's a dream. A dream come true
The picture is at the base of Transfagarasan which was still closed yesterday, at Vidraru Lake

Andrei check your PM
