    Not only in action, as good as new! didn't even add any oil, [it might have went down a 1/4 inch in the window after 2,700 miles of hammering it.] 166,000 miles with no end in sight.
    I actually like riding this bike better than my 2017 Tenere. Solo anyway.

    That bike is weighed down
    Bet you had fun! Did a 400 mile Journey through Northern NM also. Although, took a car as I decided to drop the bike for a day and take my Mom out for a joy ride. Seems like you are liking your Tenere. Would be curious on your thoughts likes/dislikes if any. Been thinking of upgrading my DL650 to one next year. Seems like it would be a great touring machine for our type of terrain.

    Yes we did have fun! As with any bike the more time you spend on it the more you either like it or dislike it. I am liking this bike. In fact I hate getting off it! It is very comfortable for me,
    it is smooth and has enough power on the hwy, with me and a passenger. I love the electronic cruise control. It does not feel top heavy to me, and it handles very well. I have taken it on
    easy dirt roads (forest roads), and I am impressed at how well it does. I would like to take it off road a little more, but I need to install a proper skid plate, and add some better suited tires
    before I feel comfortable off road. Trying to decide on a skid plate for it. I like the low maintenance that this bike offers. So easy to change oil, and diff oil. The shaft drive is pretty nice.
    I am currently experiencing a problem with down shifting. It just started about 500 miles ago. I probably just need to adjust the linkage tension. I will be working on that a little, but that
    has been annoying. Not much to dislike about the bike so far.

    Laural Highlands past weekend for our 10 anniversary of our Dual Sport Club.

    I'm getting much better at packing down for camping trips. Food, cold gear, rain gear,
    Hammock, tools, etc[​IMG]
