I've been planning and scheming for almost a year now, and I finally pulled the trigger. It's got almost everything I want already on it, it's in perfect condition, OCD maintained, only 13,000 miles and a 4 year Y.E.S. warranty.

Now for a weekend in the Hill country to figure what's right and what needs to be changed..............


WOW.. I think I know that bike... congratulations to you both (buying & selling).. Nice bike !

Congrats on the Tenere purchase! I recognize that bike too. I really wanted to buy it myself, but the stars just weren't lining up for me. Shakedown ride in the hill country sounds nice bout now. Enjoy!

What's the deal with that back rest? That looks like it would be great for long slab rides.

What gives?
How old are your eyeballs?

Yes, the headlights are fixed and have a cutoff that the causes some loss of light in turns, but they've never caused me to react like Chicken Little.

I did install some Baja Squadrons last year that do a great job filling any voids.
Sweepers are still OK with the OEMs and how far ahead do you really need to throw the light in the super tight stuff?

You have my full permission to fix my copy written comments.
Seeing how GB has ignored my last 300 PMs I'm starting to
wonder if I'm typing to blind eyes.

If Dallara owned the truck it would be a KTMHARLEYDUCATIhauler.

Whew! Thanks, Pluric... I started feeling my blood pressure rise to dangerous levels, just like when I used to have to argue with KTM USA about warranty claims, parts availability, lack of tech support, etc.

I can't have that kind of stress at my advanced age now!

And I simply *LOVE* CZ's...





They never break, so they don't even need warranties, and they win championships!

Guys add risers and that makes the sitting position vertical so all weight is squarely on your rear and at that point your back is just wondering WTF??, so add the backrest would be my guess.
I wouldn't need one on the tenere with the stock seat/bar setup. On the goldwings all the backrest is good for is making your back sweat in hot weather, so I don't see the sense there much either, but all personal preference.

Before you sold it were you ever able to figure what the knocking noise was and why it used oil?

And here I thought the "hard starting issue" was the real reason he sold it...
