Re: Any '14 or newer Tenere owners here?

Spent a few days on one with Bondo a while back ... might even have been a '14 model ... and loved it. Bit tall for me, but once it's rolling who cares? Great motor, very comfy seating position; I had it for about a week of moderately long days, found it very comfortable and handles quite well for what it is. The gas gauge is useless, but that's a pretty small caveat.

I wouldn't take it "off-road", but gravel roads and such are no problem for any bike.

: Local dealer has a new 2014 left over sitting on the floor for
: $11g, it's not the ES model but still has adjustable bits, ABS,
: traction control and cruise. I don't plan on going offroad with
: it, giving up my KLR because I don't go there anymore, will be
: spent as a everyday rider/ touring bike on (mostly) paved roads.

: My question is how do you like it for 2 or more day ride comfort
: wise? How is that seat? Felt way better than the Corbin flat I
: have on the KLR that's for sure, but the showroom only tells so
: much. I know it's a totally subjective question but the youtube
: videos I watched seemed to have positive things to say but most
: are reviews of new bikes. Figured I'D ask people who have the
: bike for a while how they like their bike?
