Looks to me like another broken Tenere sidestand...chronic problem really. Yamaha even provides owners a free strap to hold their bikes up...in the manual it suggests strapping to a stable vehicle such as a GS.

Always interesting to know (or to dig) why someone makes a good deal on a new bike, new model.

If your appetite was as small as your sense of humor you'd be anorexic.

Cloaking your disdain behind bad jokes really doesn't hide anything.

I won't bother responding to your nonsense further.
