Why did you even bother to get the Super Tenere if it youre just going to knock it? What makes a new HD anytging different than another new cruiser? It isnt special, not any more than the next motorcycle. other companies have been around just as long. Do they just not have a history? As to comfort, that is subjective. i find my motorcycles to be comfortable for what i do with them. An overweight, shiny, and loud cruiser doesn't fit into that comfort for me.
