good choice with the Super Tenere, alaskabound, with a simple hello.....

And a welcome from the west coast of Canada.
 Yes, the Tenere is a very good choice for a long distance, comfortable and most importantly, reliable adventure bike. 
I have the first gen. model but there are lots of improvements to the second gen. including cruise control which would be much appreciated on a ride to AK

Hi, welcome, i am a new Tenere owner and live 10 minutes from you.
If i hadn't just bought one, i'd buy the 2016 ES listed in the for sale section here.
It's in pennsylvania and looks like a good deal.

There are several bikes for sale on the forum, including the 2016 mentioned and a recently advertised 2014 that has YES warranty until 2020, being a left over bike sold for the first time in 2015.  Both of those are low mile great deals.

In case you haven't sorted it all out yet, Gen I bikes in the US are 2012-2013 models and Gen II bikes with factory CC and other changes are 2014-on.  These bikes all have the same engine and will easily run past 100k miles w/o anything more than oil/filter changes, brake pads and tires.

Thanks when I find that section I'll take a look. Everyone has them but none of them built, I like to test drive one even 5 miles before I spend that type of cash.

welcome aboard,

I'm in western/central MA (according to Bostonians) and I just got back from an Alaska trip. Bike worked flawlessly. Still writing up the trip reports. Ask all the questions you want. There is a way to make it all work on this bike, but you don't have to change much to make it a continent crosser. Factory cruise control is a dream.

Welcome to the forum!  The Tenere (either gen) will make an excellent choice.  I (and many others here) have owned both and can help explain the differences. You really can't go wrong with either!,

Good luck!!
