Can I say I love the color? Congrats, now go ride it. Then come back here and bitch about something.
doesn't have a hemet holder
What I most dislike about my S10?
How it smugly looks at me if I walk past it and get in my truck.
It's more like a sneer and it's calling me a puss.
Keep in mind I RARELY take the truck. But seriously, what can I do if there are 3 or more of us going somewhere?
That's where the adventure starts.
See above. Don't need to hold what you don't have.
Bike has great balance but the motor blows. Was at my local Yamaha dealer two days ago looking at a DR650 SE for my son and got into a conversation with the sales manager. We were talking about adventure bikes in general. He recalled me riding the Super T a few months back and asked what I thought. He also said he spent several hours riding one as well. I told him it would be an awesome bike if the motor would just have any hint of grin factor. He agreed.
If they would just give it more torque in the bottom it would be a winner.
More torque ???
What for ? If you need more torque buy a John Deere tractor.
Just have to mention, I put i mini fuse to shorten the clutch switch ( mentioned at a lot of places) and I
am almost shocked by the great differens that made for the bottom response. Maybe bring a fuse to a testride
pop it in and feel the bike transform. Recommend it!
Shoud say, it has backsides. The bike could jump away if started with gear engaged
and the "touring-sport" modes will stop working (it is said, have not touched that switch
Since the fuse).
Your checking account is just getting warmed up. Don't forget about the farkles.
I'd be curious to hear from those who have theirs up for sale in the Flea Market.
My local dealer installed a clutch switch in his demo bike: good results, good sales...
Oh, I don't know, Brian. I have heard rumors of it helping off road and it actually makes the riders face grin when riding on road. Other than that, your right. It probably has no use.
I've only seen two there recently. One of them was being sold for financial reasons. And guess what, he found a way to swing to the payments and is now keeping it http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=809694
The other one was sold by MoBill who put 15,000 miles on it. No sure what his reasons were, but as far as what I read here he seemed pretty happy with it.
the lack of used Teneres in itself should tell you something
Trinc4me has one for sale too....a beautiful blue one.
How could you not like this bike, only thing i find wrong is that the GS's cant keep up, so you will tend to ride alone!
Now that's a rare photo. A Tenere upright in sand.:huh
South Africans Mate!
My plan is to Demo one Saturday, I will report back after test ride about what a terrible bike it is.
Good for you JJ .
Now take it down to a decent painter and have it painted Yamaha Yellow with the Strobe pattern
