    I've got the bug to get into adventure riding and am considering the 2021 Yamaha Tenere 700. I'd like to know of Yamaha dealers in MN that you have been happy with or any dealers to shy away from.

    TIA

    You are probably better off posting this question in the Regionals sub-forum for the MN area.

    MN is a pretty big state. However, assuming you are in the Twin Cities, Motoprimo in Lakeville (south side) is good. Moon Motorsports is also excellent (NW side).

    I like Moon and Larsons, they both do very good work and treat their people well. I would not have any issues sending a friend or relative to either.

    Belle Plaine motorsports are nice folks. I’ve purchased 3 new motorcycles from them. I also like Moon.

    All listed above are good choices. I have had good experiences with Larson with my KTM and parts for my Honda's at Motoprimo and I worked with Jake A. at Motoprimo when I was looking for bikes and had a good experience even after I buying my Suzuki from Leo's down the road. A lot of relations come down to your attitude while there. If you go in ball busting and tire kicking then you may have a worse experience than going in and chit chatting on the first visit and getting to know the people you are dealing with.
