    Super Tenere. Get it flashed and send the suspension to Cogent Dynamics.

    When the fuel pump went out at 38k miles the tft displayed fuel pump failure.
    So assuming thats not a problem. It is something the computer is recognizing though.

    Only one brand, well two, that fits your requirements! The rest are great Motos, but more for back roads, interstate, and some gravel. It all depends on what the riders idea of terms! Off road, adventure, dirt, gravel, and what is single track or two track ..... all in what you like!

    I have a tough time believing that a KTM 1290 would be worn out at 50,000 miles. I would suggest taking it to your dealer’s service department.....or buying a service manual and start investigating.

    A 2011 klr gets me back on 2 wheels for just a little cash.

    Figure out later if the 1290 is the ultimate bike for me or if i need to seak out other avenues! 20210418_094801.jpg

    The gap between how entertaining, isn't quite the same as the gap on the price tag.
    But not far behind.
