    Gee. I was gonna buy one until I saw this spam-ass first post. Now? It's a nice bike but.....Nah. I just feel all violated. And shit.

    Anyway. I heard that dealership was owned by the Taliban and I'm not supporting no Taliban. :D

    This is not Spam. The bike really is going to be on display at this dealership. Great people. I may be downsizing my collection after I get to see it.

    Not spam? lol. I"ll bet you a dollar to a donut that the OP had a commercial purpose in posting this thread. Hence the use of the word "spam".


    I'm also betting that other Yamaha dealers will have one on display, too. If he's connected to a vendor, he needs to post his commercial posts in Vendor's. Them's the rules. ;)

    Most all of these are sit on, look only, no test ride from what I have heard.

    Those of you with them ordered already will have to give us a report once you ride them ( I am betting June, maybe even July) upon arrival.

    I was in buying a helmet and walked over to look at the bikes. One of the staff came up and started chatting. When he found out that I had the BMW he mentioned that he had ordered a Tenere and that he would have it there to show. He made it sound like it was coming in within a month or two, but honestly it was just a curiosity to me so I didn't make much of a mental note. This is the first time I've done business with them and they seem like a good bunch.

    Yea if you ordered one today you might see one by august or later. BUT if you were on your pee's and q's like me mine will be here in May. I ordered the 1st week of the program which almost guarantees me I am within the first 100 over on the boat.:D There are a few traveling the country to sit on at various dealers. It will be at the the motorcycle shows around the country. Only demo rides that will be offered are at Daytona bike week according to the YAMAHA letter I got in the mail today:wink:
