My 12 Tenere was horrible, very snatchy at low speeds to the point that it wasn't even fun. I think the 18 DL1K is very smooth by comparison. Still not as good at slower speed as the 650, but acceptable.
The XT has spokes and a fat bar, that's the difference.
"How rare that we can point ourselves inevitably west and go, go, go. Run out the highway and the hills. Slide our fingertips over the creases and the valleys of the impossibility that is America. You canít grasp its vastness from a plane. Itís diversity from a map. You have to put your feet on the ground. Your hands in the dirt." - Zach Bowman
