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.

My favorite roads in the universe (High Sierra Passes) opened early this year. First time I've rode them in April. Just Perfect.

Hey Dave,

Is that CA108 east of Dardenelle? We rode that back in 2004 and that has to be one of my all time favorites.

That photo was taken on HWY 4, just over Ebbits Pass, which is North of 108 a bit. The terrain is very similar, which is a good thing . I rode home over 108 after this photo, and it is one of my all time favorites as well. I feel lucky to have it in my backyard.

Enjoy the Blue Ridge. The speed is slow which is good for sightseeing and dodging turkeys and deer. Its a great motorcycle ride. Don't forget to get a pic of the beast at the mill for your scrap book.

We must ride on different Blue Ridges. The speed has never been "slow" the 3 times I rode it.

Heck, this guy is from the UK. Might as well blast down just slow enough not to wind up in jail. Leave the tickets with customs on the way out.

I drove up to Miller's from NC to get my bike. Ernie Miller is one of the nicest people you will ever deal with. He is a strait shooter and will really take care of you. Great price and the damage is minimal. If you do head over there, tell Ernie that Dan in NC say hello.

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.
