Scratched the itch
« on: December 27, 2016, 04:50:20 AM »
I've had the hots for a Super Tenere for a few years. Have been able to avoid scratching the itch until this week. I needed a toy under the tree so I picked this up on Chrismas Eve. My first Yamaha

VERY nice! I've had the  :drooler: for those for a while as well...

Next question is, will you be able to fit that 10-gallon IMS tank on there?  haphap

Thanks guys, will give updates. I haven't ridden on the road yet since I don't have a tag but have ridden in the woods behind my house. It's amazing how even though she is "big boned", it still maneuvers fairly well in the trees. Even still, there is a LOT of motorcycle there. Time will tell. Still have the KLR for the rough stuff.  :ricky:

No sir I was not, however, I know you are capable of helping "break"in a new bike.  :poke: :Hap1:

Heck of a bike you got there Mac, looks like you've moved up to the big league. I'd like to get a look at it before it gets all scratched up.

Hope you enjoy your new toy. I've had the hots for a red one just like your's minus the side boxs at my dealer. It's just alittle  bit out of my budget. I keep saying one of these days.
