I've only bought brand new once....back in 1982 when i bought my then new Yamaha XJ1100 Maxim...i kept it 30 yrs...sold it 2 yrs ago...wish i hadn't...but nowadays its never brand new. While its true you can have an adventure on any motorcycle...I have never owned an "adventure" m/c...so something that can still do a LD ride on the hwy but can also do a fair amount of dirt...gravel...sandy roads...the Tenere fits the bill...

I didnt bother going down there...i did continue down the road to where the bridge goes over the neuse and it was swollen with muddy brown water...the ride out there was a quite pleasant...on my ride down i took buffalo rd all the way into selma and a cop followed me all the way from Wendell to selma...he didnt stop me even though he was following me at 10mph over...when i pulled into town he pulled even with me and just gave me a salute...I do have police emblems on the back of the bike...I thank my son for those...

OK New Tag...and we are back in town...u shouldn't have any trouble finding this one...any angle will do...i did ask some city workers who were there if it would be alright to park where i did and they said it was ok...the lane that runs through this park will exit out another street which is good because there really isnt any place to turn around...Also this historic park was tagged but it was the main house...if you get lost just ask Moses Mordecai...he'll be happy to guide you...

Clue shot...

Tagged that a couple years ago, but I can't find it in this game. Must have been one of the wildcard games...

Well, if you've been there before there doesn't seem to be any point in going again :)

It's a side view cause we're not hooligans.
