I was in Erg Chebbi with my Suzuki DRZ and was fantastic but perhaps the Tenere is too heavy??
I agree the DRZ is lighter and in the sand the lighter the bike the easier it is to ride I am not a fun of BMW R1200GSA in the sand because every time I did I lost 10 pound per day riding the monster in the sandy areas. It takes away from the fun and it becomes work all the way and every mistake means you will have a chance of 640 pounds landing on top of you. Having said that the right tires and a steering damper make a huge difference in the sand especially with the big bikes.
