The Super Tenere is a solid bike. Shaft drive, yammer heritage, lots of doo-dads. Were it not for the Tiger I might be on one, or more likely a 990 Adventure.

I also think they are a good choice for a large rider, a big muscular guy that can handle the weight. At 175lbs and getting old and weak, I could tell it was too much bike for me.

I met up with the OP here, Kalitrailrider, with his new XC on Monday. We put some break-in miles on his bike, a couple of hundred miles out in the Anza area northeast of San Diego, and had a blast. Bike fits him well and he was scooting right along. He's a happy rider! Pix later.
