Hi, just joining the group as I'm about to pull the trigger on a Tenere.

I'm a tall rider and would be interested in any mods other tall folks have made.

I'm aware of the "flat seat" mod so I'll be doing that first.

I'm not new to riding, just want something smaller so I don't have to ride 900 lbs to the post office.

Thanks,
Sorb

Welcome. I don't think the seat will be the issue; she has plenty of leg room. You will likely need/want a taller windscreen though.

Hello from San Diego. I agree, it's unusual to say the Tenere is lighter than something, but I guess there are some heavy bikes out there. I just picked up a Kawasaki Nomad 1600 that's probably got 200 pounds on the Tenere.

Welcome aboard! What part of SoCal? I'm an OC native myself, now living (well) outside Las Vegas. If you need any assistance with anything here on the forum, feel free to reach out to myself for checkswrecks (resident mods)

Hello back to u from another So Cal guy, IE area. Haha, I know the feeling. My other 2 bikes HD Dyna and HD Streetglide make the S10 feel like a lightweight on the road.

Geek,

One question, since adding cruise control in 2015 have there been any other major upgrades to later years?

I used to live in Fallbrook as well, went o high school there, so I'm pretty familiar with north county (San Diego).

What bigbob said, no major updates, but there have been incremental improvements and adjustments.
