Nope... My love affair with the big S-10 is still in full swing. It fills the role I set for it perfectly and I still don't see anything that would do as well.

The WR was a fantastic bike. I bought it thinking I was going to do more weekend trip/dual sport ADV style riding with it. In reality I ended up doing very few trips and mostly trail riding and single track. The KTM is a better tool for that job in my case, and will handle the occasional trip without issue.

I wish I could justify keeping both!

I think with another person to back you up, it's doable on a big bike. Or even pack up the dirt bikes and do it at a bit higher pace.
That would be a great reason to head west again.
If you had to choose ,would it be big bike or small bike?

If I we were to go together, I would go with either. Alone, I would go with the Tenere again and explore different areas.

Greg, it was a pleasure meeting you and I'm glad the bike is going to a good home.
As much as I love my new bike, I still look in that corner of the garage expecting to see my S10 there. What a great machine she was. Treated me right did she...

The ride out there was a test of my will and endurance. Down in the 'teens, even a heated jacket doesn't cut it.
