I think it was your tone more than anything. I'll chalk it up to context and inflection being lost in the written (typed) word.

I bet that motor is sweet though, and I wish the Tenere had the ABS setup the BMW does where you can turn the rear off but leave the front on. That would be ideal.

I just can't get over the look of the new 1200GS. Maybe it looks better in person, but the camera is not that bike's friend. Or it could just be me. Doesn't matter really since I've still got 4 years and three months or 40k miles before I can consider a new bike. Keeping it for 5 years or 50k miles was the deal when I got the Tenere.
