I've just been to the Yamaha dealer to take a look at the new Super Tenere ES plus the older model. Mmmmmm, I think I may be sold on this bike! I know they're heavy, but ironically it felt lighter than my GSA. And a close buddy of mine has been riding one for a couple of years now, and importantly, never had any problems.

Thought I'd add this link to show what the Tenere is capable of with a relatively 'ordinary' rider in typical South African dirt road conditions.

I have learned in Morocco that riding on unpavement roads with passanger and luggage can be expensive

Thats why I use these, but haven't fitted crash bars.

Almost 8 years old. Never seen the inside of a garage and still starts first time on the original battery with 50k very hard miles on it.
Passed it's 6th MOT yesterday with nothing on the sheet.
