New SportTourer for 2016

My V is 7 years old now. I'm considering a sport tour bike.
The FJ-09 is interesting, but it may not be sorted out yet.

This could be an option

Although somewhat pricy. I can dream...

Only $15k? I'll take two! I think I like the Super Tenere better at $10k.

I've heard many good things about the Tenere. And I've had good experiences with Yamaha for many years (on and off since 1969).

But - I tend to ride my street bike on pavement, and my off road bike on the dirt (GasGas 280 TXT). I'm spoiled that way. I have thought about buying a dualsport, in the 250cc to 450cc range, for times I would want to ride both on the same trip.

Since the Tenere weighs 575 lbs, I guess it's cheaper if you measure it in $/lbs. !!!

Oh, thanks a lot, @$$hole ! Do you enjoy spending other's $$$ ?



I called them. With freight/setup/doc fees and whatever....
$9,656 for a 2013 Super Tenere - out the door. Of course, ya gotta pay your sales tax and registration.

So I call a buddy of mine.... and I think we're going to make a trip out there this weekend and get two of them.
