2013 Adventure bikes

Well, I am very interested in the Tenere but it appears it is now "old tech."

Hope this qualifies as a new find, or at least new to most here. I suppose the blue/purple (blur-ple) color will be a new color for the Tenere.

Hope it stays that way. The others seem to be evolving into sport standards with
a horsepower race going on. Keep the low end grunt please.

The 'dated' thing is it's only 100 hp. How will it ever get out of it's own way???

Other than reliability, I don't think the S10 has been build to be the first at anything, but very close for everything.

At least the new KTM in the video makes the Tenere headlights look wonderful.

This accurately shows how I felt watching the flashing lights -->

Used Tenere, priced right?

I REALLY like the white Tenere, but this might be the deal for me.

Do you folks think this is a good deal? I've only bought one other bike in my life, 20 years ago, so I'm not a good judge.

Go get it.

If you change your mind later, you will not loose that much.

That looks like a pretty decent price. Look at the Canadian price and you will understand the deal you have there...

Looks like a good deal to me. Price is excellent and the damage is minimal.

Thanks for the comments gentlemen. The dealer is about 45 minutes from me so I just might pick this up tomorrow depending on what the finance charge is for a used bike and what the warranty looks like.

The damage doesn't bother me, almost a relief as crazy as that sounds.

Should I still add crash bars given the existing damage?

I love the way you process your pics. Since the C and the related F words are banned here, I will not mention that your pics remind me of the Kodak Kodachrome f*** days.

Ah well, they may not be the fastest, but then they definitely go the farthest compared to the rest of the lot

And IMO that's what 'adventure' bikes are meant to do!
