    I would like to enter a plea of guilty to the crime of 'boy drool'. I came for the ride report, I was trapped by the eyes.

    Frankly I like that fact that she is a tiger 1050 rider like me. Its somewhat of a rare bike in a sea of BMW 1200 GS's

    How'd you swing the ride on the Super Tenere? Thought they were special order only.

    Non stop rain and work = no riding.
    Today was almost all sun and play.

    I woke up with all the normal intentions however..
    Coffee, emails, invoices, Work&#8230;&#8230;..wait, Is that SUN outside??
    And what ?
    An Adv'er on his way through will be in town at 11?
    And what?
    I may get to ride the super tenere?

    Well, Let's roll&#8230;&#8230;

    I told you running around doing wheelies would get you in trouble over there.

    A big thanks to G&B Motorsports here in Petaluma for throwing caution to the wind and letting me ride the 2012 Super Tenere!



    Now, if I could only figure out where the kick start is………:evil

    Great pix. I'm interested to hear how the Tenere "feels", weight-wise, when you're on it. I think it's listed as heavier than the Tiger, but I wonder how it seems when you're riding it.

    I've tested the Tiger, and hope to grab a ride on the Tenere at some point.

    i'd love to know the same....i think replacing the exhaust might save a significant amount of weight...WOW THAT THING IS BIG!

    (a break from all the boy drool at the very least :D)

    I found this bike, the Yamaha, VERY easy to ride.
    Felt 'light' to me even though it def has the wt to it.
    Not as smooth as the triple, because well, it's not a triple..... :lol3
