Super Tenere ! Is it finally here?

I am scheduled to pick up my new bike next Saturday, I hope I don't jinx myself. Wow, it has been a very long wait, and NO I would not do it again. No PDP program for me. I'll be riding in Alabama. Any good suggestions on nice roads to try?

Test your agility.

Hi, Clem.

Exactly two miles due south of the Barber Museum is a road called Bailey. This is so twisty that snakes avoid it. Lou and Charlie and I meandered up and down it a few years ago, and we are still dizzy from it ... well, I am, anyway.

Good luck with your new mount!
Keith

Picked my Tenere at noon today !!
I did not pre-order.
The Yamaha dealer ordered one extra one (Blue) and I was first with the money.

Consider yourself very lucky. I waited a year for my order, still not in my possession, full of ups and downs. Yamaha said it would be a "strict" delivery by date ordered. And everyone knows now how that deal went.

Like I said before, PDP is not for me!

The saving grace, I'll have one soon.
