I've been waiting... You sure you're not ready for a yellow Strom again?

Well, whatever you do, when it comes time to sell your Super Ténéré, I want to know first!

Super Ténéré - that is a nice bike. I'm just being partial though!

He's goofing with me - I don't have an S10 nor will I, even though I'm a Yamaha fan. A little too heavy for me.
I'm waiting for a middle weight Yamaha dual-sport (and so are a LOT of other people...).

I imagine you will have trouble finding a bike to tow it. Maybe a Rokon?

Old,
I am with you on that!
I think I want that new 850 triple set up like a Tenere.
A middle weight at 800cc should fit nicely.
Have you tried the Triumph XC??

Nope, haven't ridden one. My son has had a 600 and 675 Daytona, both were very well made and reliable. I'm sure the 800XC's are a hoot, not sure that's exactly what I want.
I think I want a 950 ADV chassis with a shaft drive Honda twin cut and welded into it... or something.

800XC is still too damned heavy.

Whatever happened to the smaller powerplants? Why are there no 500cc's? Where does everyone need to be in such a goddamned hurry anyway?

Ohhhhhmm.......

Ténéré - I'm having a bit of trouble deciding which sylable of that word to accentuate when written that way.

That something would be the Honda V4. Smooth as glass and jaw-dropping power. Makes me like to think of a v-twin as an improved version of those old hit-and-miss engines shown at fairs.

Went on an early morning ride to get the sv inspected. It passed! On the way home ran across a gentleman who was having a few issues witha norton commando 750. He owns a small shop in front royal. I will have to swing by sometime!
