Sold my liter bike for a Tenere!



I am in love with this bike. I use to ride a 08 CBR 1000RR but I am glad it's gone.

I have put 50 miles so far on this bike, and I didn't want to get off and kept trying to find an excuse to take a long trip somewhere

The handling through turns is phenomenal. The bike rides smooth even at 70 mph. And I am surprised at how the power feels in all ranges. It won't do 100 mph in first gear, but who cares, this is one amazing bike!

Congrats! I also had a 08 CBR 1000RR and now ride a Tenere. I only have about 800 miles on the Tenere but am really enjoying more than the CBR.


Ride first....work later!!!!!

Congratulations as well! I traded in my 2011 Ninja 1000 for my Super Tenere and have been very happy about it. I do occasionally miss the Ninja's motor - but in the end, the Ninja was not suitable for the 600 mile days I was riding. After 600 miles on the Super Tenere I feel as though it was only 250 miles!
Enjoy!

Too funny,,,

Pluric pulls a new Tenere rider in.....

Had me laugh out loud - they'll figure out who Pluric is soon enough....soon as they start visiting the Tenere threads here.

Stopped at the local Yamaha dealer and asked the kid behind the counter for an oil filter for a super tenere. After a blank stare he asked who makes that.

Maybe the owner needs to ride it. He ordered one like mine after her tested my bike.

Must have been related to the kid at the dealer over here, he had no idea what a Tenere was. Then I told him I wanted the side wind deflectors it was over, he asked someone else to take over.
