    Hi Lisa :wave Going to keep the GSA?

    Loving the new saddle so far, still getting used to it though.

    I am testing the waters. I love the GSA like no other motorcycle in my past. I am not in love with taking a half day for a trip to the dealer... We will see if Yamaha wins my heart.

    I missed that saddle on my last road trip! Glad you are enjoying it.

    OK - you are correct about my mental state but appear to be misinformed about the color choices! I will point out that between placing the deposit and picking it up, I called the dealer exactly once. That was Wednesday to ask if the rumors were true. They ran with expediting it from there!

    Good color choice. I got lucky - the Teneres arrived at the Chicago distribution center and there was already a truck scheduled for CCM. They stopped long enough for two more crates... And I win the delivery lottery. pure luck. and I would rather be lucky than good.

    . LOL. I am undecided how to cover that bad boy up. The muffler is not one of the bike's better visual attributes. Surprisingly, I think it sounds marvelous. But almost anything sounds good next to a boxer...

    Saw Hayes Carll last night at the Stuart Opera House in Nelsonville. Even if you don't like Hayes Carll you should check out a show there sometime :thumb

    I'll let you know Monday that I needed some cool people to ride moto support for our PAN OH Hope ride from Cleveland to Cincy that started yesterday :lol3

    9Dave & I had a plan then I decided to highside my bike and couldn't get caught back up to make it happen. I was riding the bicycle part of the ride.

    There's a company that makes a carbon fiber replacement shield for the muffler. It's about $180 and serves no purpose other than a very minor weight reduction, but the cool/bling factor might be worth the $180. If I can find a link to it I'll send it to you.

    It does. Better than I thought and I already thought it was cool.

    And Lisa pulls off the first Tenere photo of the thread! Way to go, I love the quiet underdog. Now lets all say it correctly... Ten-err-ray!

    now... do they make a high front fender kit for it yet?

    The classiest way to do it would have been to go get the TAG on it, and not even mention the bike, or acknowledge any subsequent questions about it! :lol3

    I like the black.

    I prefer "Tender Ray", it sounds like a movie about a gay guy with diminished mental capacity, who is very lovable.

    I can't pull up the video due to work issues, but suddenly I am thinking of "Simple Jack".
