I'm becoming an addict...
« on: September 11, 2017, 02:02:08 pm »
I picked up my 2013 Super Tenere on Friday...and I'm in love. I've ridden Harleys for 13 years and just made the switch. Don't get me wrong, I still love harleys, but there is something about the responsiveness, the agility, the energy of this bike that is unmatched by anything else I've ridden. Even in the dirt, I feel stable. It's insane and I love it! Not to ride the Twisted Sisters again and see how they feel! (one of the best rides in Texas IMO)
I'll take the path never traveled... I'll bet there's an adventure down there!

 ::026:: I was down there in March.  The Tenere will keep up with an R6 in even the tightest of curves, 'till the Tenere runs out of tire.  I was very surprised at the speed & and agility.  I mean, it's a big honking enduro....(TBDBITW)....it shouldn't be able to do what it does.  And the dirt riders on this forum can make it do equally crazy s**t off road.  ::001::

Saw you're up in DFW. Some great rides up near the Red River! I picked up this S10 in McKinney. Best pricing I could find in the state. And glad I did it too. Now to  ::021::

congrats on your new ride, hillcountrybiker, with a simple hello.....

Congrats )
I just came over from Harleys too. I rode bikes made by the big 3 from the 70's to early 90's. (Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki) I love the comfort of my Road Glide but was missing the fun of a nice handling bike.

Until I can get proper "adventure" attire I am wearing my leather gloves and jacket with jeans and boots.

a helmet and your ready.... atgatt is what most of us strive for.... minimum would be helmet , jacket , gloves ( I see gloves as extremely important as when one falls you usually put your hands down , and at any speed would not take long to shorten some fingers ) , boots , jeans are barely adequate , would shred in a few feet. I admit most of the time I'm in the minimum , motorcycle pants are best.... wear what you got . till one can do better.
