    I notice all adventure models have the high exhaust pipe, supposedly for when fording those deep rivers :rofl

    That looks like a steal considering the luggage and all farkles. And having owned a FJR 1300 know they are strong runners. I met few folks in Alaska from lower 48'on Tenere's. I bet it won't sit long. You just need a test ride to see if the fun factor is there. Arkansas would be a nice ride, I remember the roads around Hot Springs were allot of fun. The Guzzi Stelvio is ~ 16k new. But don't discount a good used GS, there are quite few low mileage ones for around $13k on BMWMOA flea market or hey even the new Honda Africa Twin tough not sure when it will get here. Sill I am now so spoiled for so may years not having to lube and replace chains :D

    I've only bought brand new once....back in 1982 when i bought my then new Yamaha XJ1100 Maxim...i kept it 30 yrs...sold it 2 yrs ago...wish i hadn't...but nowadays its never brand new. While its true you can have an adventure on any motorcycle...I have never owned an "adventure" m/c...so something that can still do a LD ride on the hwy but can also do a fair amount of dirt...gravel...sandy roads...the Tenere fits the bill...:deal

    I didnt bother going down there...i did continue down the road to where the bridge goes over the neuse and it was swollen with muddy brown water...the ride out there was a quite pleasant...on my ride down i took buffalo rd all the way into selma and a cop followed me all the way from Wendell to selma...he didnt stop me even though he was following me at 10mph over...when i pulled into town he pulled even with me and just gave me a salute...I do have police emblems on the back of the bike...I thank my son for those...:huh :evil

    ha... I get nervous and take no chances under similar scenarios after having my last speeding ticket in the cage, in my new home town from a local cop no less.. but I also met real nice cop's especially motorcycle ones :deal

    OK New Tag...and we are back in town...u shouldn't have any trouble finding this one...any angle will do...i did ask some city workers who were there if it would be alright to park where i did and they said it was ok...the lane that runs through this park will exit out another street which is good because there really isnt any place to turn around...Also this historic park was tagged but it was the main house...if you get lost just ask Moses Mordecai...he'll be happy to guide you...

    Tagged that a couple years ago, but I can't find it in this game. Must have been one of the wildcard games...

    Well, if you've been there before there doesn't seem to be any point in going again :)
