I have had mine almost a year now. It is a superb MC my two thoughts the gas consumption is a little on the thirsty size and it cries out for a steering stabilizer on gravel roads . I have had two 1150 GS's and currently own a KTM 990 and a BMW K1200GT. The Tenere is the quietest bike of the three on the road, zero wind noise. My wife was talking about this when we went out for a 300 km toot Saturday evening. The ABS brakes are first rate and saved our ass Saturday I am tall and my bike has custom suspension making a tall bike taller, it would be a handful for a shorter rider to move around.I can see riding this bike for a decade or more. I view it as a dual sport tourer more than a dual sport.
