Howdy, I am in the market for a new adventure bike. I've owned an R1200GS Adventure and a newer Multistrada. I do a lot of long distance riding and ride through the winter here in New England, so wind and weather protection (and protection from noise/buffeting) are important to me. The Multistrada is an amazing bike in many ways, but its too sensitive/expensive for much off pavement work and riding in salty/sandy roads for my tastes. Its also loud as hell from a wind noise standpoint. I have the chance to buy a leftover Yamaha Super Tenere from 2012...yes 2012. Their asking price is $12,800 or so. Retail blue book for this vintage is $11k and change...and assumes 2800 miles :huh I'm drawn to this bike in part because of the price (do you think it should be even less?) and also because of their reputation of being drama free. I'm just worried I will be bored or underwhelmed by its performance. I did test ride one for a short 15 min about 2 years ago...felt nice, but not mind blowing. The new 2014 BMW GS Adventure is amazing both performance and looks-wise. :eek1 But is it that much more so to justify the $10K price difference? I can afford the BMW, but do I "need" it? These are the questions I wrestle with. Many say to "buy what moves your heart". I dunno. I'm not sure what I'm asking you guys in this post...maybe just thoughts and opinions to help move me in one direction or another. Also, how many miles are you getting out of a tank of gas? That's another annoyance for me with the Multi....I'm only getting 170-180 miles before the low fuel light comes on.
