Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere

On the ABR forum: What do you think of the Yamaha Super Tenere?

Author: Rob Slade

Last week the ABR forum saw its fair share of questions about all things bike related, and as ever, there are plenty of people in need of assistance.

We had questions about riding Scotland’s NC500, Kevlar jeans and whether the Yamaha Super Ténéré is a decent choice of adventure bike. Can you help anyone out?

Bluebird is hoping to take on Scotland’s NC500 and is looking for advice from anyone who has done so before. “Any parts you would miss or add? In what direction would you do it? Recommendations for accommodation would be good.” Help the guy out by heading to the forum.

Joth wants to know if you think it would be worth taking out an extended warranty on a BMW R1200GSA. Opinions welcome here.

Exrm193 is looking for some recommendations for Kevlar jeans. “Apart from the ‘Draggin’ brand, are there any others out there that are any good?” Head to the forum to share your thoughts.

Lancstony recently got rid of his Triumph Tiger Explorer and is now contemplating replacing it with a Yamaha Super Ténéré. Before committing he would like to hear if there is anything in particular he should look out for and what people like in particular about the bike. Drop by the forum to join the conversation.

One-two-three-four is looking to invest in a new bike for some green laning and long expeditions and is considering the CCM GP450S or the KTM 690 Enduro R. He wants something lightweight, reliable, nimble and not too tall. “Which would you choose and why?” Join the debate by heading to the forum.
