    Yup, it's the Raven Riders theme song.


    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re
    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re

    They have everything that you need to enjoy,
    You can hang out with all the boys ...

    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re
    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re

    You can get yourself clean, you can have a good squeal
    You can do whatever you feel ...

    Young man, are you listening to me?
    I said, young man, what do you want to be?
    I said, young man, you can make real your dreams.
    But you've got to know this one thing!

    No man does it all by himself.
    I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf,
    And just go buy a black Ten-er-re
    I'm sure they can help you today.

    Young man, I was once in your shoes.
    I said, I was down and out with the blews.
    I felt no man cared if I were alive.
    I felt the whole world was so jive ...

    That's when someone came up to me,
    And said, young man, take a ride on my bike
    It's a place called the black Ten-er-ree
    It can start you back on your way.

    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re

    Young man, young man there's no need to feel down
    Young man, young man pick yourself off the ground

    Black Ten-er-re
    then just go ride the black Ten-er-re
    young man, young man I was once in your shoes
    young man, young man I said, I was down and out with the blews.
    Black Ten-er-re....

    So they took a little liberty with the original lyrics. Those owners are black and 'blew'
    all the way through.:wink:

    Sorry about your snow. I feel your pain. I'm going up again this weekend to play in the
    white sand.:bluduh

    0 mile left over for a price so good that it was well worth the 9 drive. Saved a bundle over buying local even after the cost of the trip, plus a 4 year yes. Miller's Yamaha in Uniontown, PA. Rumbux on the way...more pictures to come.

    I've noticed a lot of dealers in Southern PA have leftover Tenere's marked way down. Romney in WV still has about 7 leftovers at really reasonable prices. Just waiting for that tax return!

    Boise State is GOD ! A David splatterin Goliaths. Duck blind for Oregon Ducks ( come on back,Ducks,quaaaack,quaaaack).
    Anyway, funny how many S10's are for sale back east. I ordered mine from a dealer pal in Ohio because he could give me a pre-delivery price, western dealers I talked to couldn't so I ordered it from my pal so I could get my name in early for that PDP thing and get early delivery. Turned out about all the 1st Tenere's(2012) came in about the same time.I towed mine 2300 miles home. Wasn't a long trip tho as my Tenere is black(faster). :1drink

    Uh Oh... your gonna get Pluric's anti Raven engine revving again!:bueller

    Yeh... my black one is also the fastest Tenere ever!!...

    "course I've never raced against any other bikes!... :doh
    but I'm still a legend in my own mind!":lol3


    I do think that dealers over-stocked on the 2012's, I got a 0 miles 2012 last December for a really good price and I know the dealer had it on site in a crate for many months while he was trying to move a Blue one on his show room floor... then he discounted them sharply because his interest rates were going up on them and he had to move em... once discounted he sold the blue one in a couple of weeks... I wanted a black one and watched them put it together...:D
    I don't think this will repeat itself in 2013... I don't think they'll over- order again and the bike is getting a great reputation... if Obummer doesn't tank the economy again this year, I think Super Ten sales will improve in 2013... I sure like mine!!

    To get these great bikes at the prices they are going for lately is one of those lucky breaks that don't happen every day... I've got a bike that will stand toe to toe with any other adventure bike on the market... for THOUSANDS of dollars less than those other bikes... very happy with that arrangement!:clap
