    Located near Saratoga Springs, NY 12866. $1950 cash.

    An early 90's collectible in good condition. Pretty rare to see a TDM in the US, but very popular in Europe where it is still in production.

    I've had this bike for several years and it is a reliable strong runner, fun to ride and a head turner and conversation starter for the curious admirer. It is a great all around bike that is right at home on bumpy backroads, smooth twisty pavement and running down gravel roads. Engine is based on the multi-time winning Dakar Tenere twin.

    Posted below is a list of all the mods, upgrades and preventative maintenance rebuilds. Just 43k miles. Very reliable and component rebuilds were for long term ownership.

    Bike is ready to ride, just needs tags and insurance and your on your way. Rear tire will need replacing soon and chain has one tight link from sitting. Body paint is pretty good for it's age. Engine cases have some peeling paint in spots.

    Sale is for bike as pictured, but also comes with an all black seat cover if you want to switch it over. Other accessories like SW Motech quick release luggage racks, Corbin seat, Wilbers shock and so forth are available at extra cost.

    Can pickup at Albany, NY airport for Fly and Ride.

    After Rich,
    I found the Givi Monokey
    mounting plate (M3) at
    Twisted Throttle for about $60.
    I've scrutinized your photos and see three bolts through the factory handrail. Other than that, I'm unable to figure out what the PO did to fasten the two items together. .
    I hate to bug,, but could you shoot a top looking down and a below looking up photo so I could duplicate the mounting hardware please...
    Your time and replies are greatly appreciated. If possible you can send them to my Pm in my profile.
    Thanks, and have a great weekend. G. In beautiful Boulder City Nv.

    Thanks. It never misses a moment of passing admiration and I do wonder about selling it.... Plus lots of great memories including a cross country trip, Mt Washington sunrise ride, eight tags grabbed and set in a day and numerous twisty scenic rides.
