You're young and there's a lot of life changing that goes on at that age. You've got a good motorcycle and maybe an adventure is in order. Nothing like a long trip to put life back into perspective. Keep the bike.

If your financial situation will allow it, keep the bike. Living where you do, you can ride year round. There's only one good reason to sell a motorcycle and that's to get another one.

Living in California, and being able to lane share, is a huge benefit to motorcycles.  I was much happier at the end of the day commuting on my bike than I ever was in my cage...

I live in your neighborhood. Let’s ride this weekend. Looks a little wet though. Early sat maybe??? PM me with your number.

If you move to sac you’ll be spending a little more time on slabs before you get to great riding, which the ST is superb at. I would think it’s the perfect bike for living in that area. For local rides in the sonoma area it’s honestly a little big, if you don’t need the distance prowess for other trips.

why selling up? lack of use? finances? lost interest? wife says no?
You live in the riding mecca of NA.  Great weather, plenty of great roads, and you have the perfect bike for it.

We're making the trip to Bend next week, just to go riding SW Oregon, and NW Cali.  I try to make the trip once a year.
I haven't ridden my road bike in 4 months..for snow reasons.
I try to ride my dirt bike as often as possible.  I'm 41, and I'm riding more and more.

You'll take a huge loss selling it... Better to hang on to it for the times you're able to ride!

If you sell it....you will be sorry!!!  Then you have to go and buy another Tenere to replace the one you were not sure you would ride enough.  I suggest letting it set for a while until you are 100% sure you want to let her go.   I agree with an earlier poster.  RIDE MORE!!!
