    Hey, welcome back to the wonderful world of Teneres Dave.

    The bike a beauty, where did you get it? Our local dealer hasn't had one on the floor for several months.

    So, ya still got the Scrambler?

    It is a tough crowd...... but soon most will be shoveling snow and riding only the key board. We'll be riding sand, and the straight flat roads to Key West!

    Regards, Paul

    Congratulations on the new Super Tenere! The most difficult choice I faced during the purchase of mine was Pearl White or Matte Grey?
    They both look good to me!
    Cheers!

    I saw a photo of the bike after it was washed. I was surprised to see the fender and brake lines were not damaged.:eek1

    Both he and the recovery quad found an underground spring.

    I think they struck oil :rofl

    That's why the magazines don't like us.. there are no owner blogs dedicated to 'character'.. no long threads further exploring this 'character' and its associated 'features' ... there's nothing to write about! And we are not allowed to discuss cameras either. This is not a fair world I tell you.

    And Tuesday I'm going to EICMA in Milan, I'm hoping Yamaha will show the new adventure bike with the three cilinder engine.
    I tested the MT09 with this engine a week ago and was really impressed. Awesome!! :clap

    If they don't build this bike I'm going to buy this engine and fix it in the 660 frame :deal

    At what point do we stop calling it a mud hole and just call it quicksand??

    Hmm, I don't know about the unmolested part. Those lights look like a form of molestation to me. :rofl
