    Thank goodness I have a blue Tenere. Otherwise, I'd I have to start looking for talent in a circus troup. :D

    My biggest gripe about the Tenere is that it doesn't come with retractable stud tires. That way I could ride it to work and back, even when it snows.

    I have a serious information that Yamaha is preparing a really good offer to try to sell the over stock of black Tenere's.
    Apparently the sales of this colour are dropping dramatically…. I wonder if is because this thread… :evil :rofl

    I thought Dallara was a woman and chalked the pissy attitude up to that :1drink

    So is now a good time to start an oil preference discussion?

    If you thought I was a woman then you must only hang out with some awfully ugly broads... :jack

    At least I'm not lazy... :jkam

    And one of the great things about a Super Tenere is that it doesn't much care what oil is in it, nor do the owners seem to obsess about it like they do over on those Beemer, Trumpet, and Katoom boards. Of course, you'd know that if you had read any of the Super Tenere threads! :drums

    :lol3 :rofl :lol3 :rofl :lol3

    My KTM was constructed from Unobtainium and was fueled by virgin unicorn blood. It would run w/ no issue only under the blessing of the pope and w/ the moon at a particular orbit.
    Just spent a half hour at the stealer talking w/ the chief snake tongue. He still has a left over blue '12 for $11500 before the magic taxes and "fee's". Best price I've come across yet.
    One thing we noticed was a black 2012 had the silver subframe with black passenger grab rails and luggage plate. Yet the blue 2012 had all silver. The two 2013's were a white model with silver sub and rails with black plate and the matte grey/black '13 had black everything.

    Installed a WorldCrosser sticker kit on my Tenere today..
    The stickers are top notch OEM Yamaha and look great, I got them from TABASCO (Jaxon) at Ride On Adventure. He can get you any WorldCrosser parts you need.. Good guy-

    Thanks for the WC sticker video, looks good. I see that you have the Saddleman seat. What do you think of it?

    I'm really loving the Saddleman seat, super comfy and heated! I had it custom made at Saddleman, they did it up with red stitching and the red middle insert. Took about 200-300 miles to get really broken in, now its comfy for a full days riding.

    I went on a tour of there factory/shop when I picked it up, everything is 100% made in house. I have some video of the seat and the factory I will put up soon..Cool place, cool people and a GREAT seat- would recommend it to anyone.:deal:clap:clap

    That is a good price. Got my 12' for $11,600 before taxes and setup. I think it's the best deal I've ever snagged on a bike.

    This wiki entry is lacking. I think we need WFOPete to update it.

    i have been looking at the s10.
    some questions.
    does it run on regular gas?
    is the stock seat good for 500 mile days?
    is the stick windscreen good or is an aftermarket one required?
    thanks...i'm too lazy to go back through all 1400 pages
