Just put the first 250km on the new Yamaha Tenere 700. Wow, what a machine. It is the perfect replacement for my smaller dualsport - it handles its weight incredibly well. My initial concerns about upgrading to a larger machine were instantly alleviated, and I got home from my first ride and immediately listed my 250 on Kijiji. The gearing and low end torque on this engine make it the perfect package in my opinion, and at 5'11" the seat height is totally manageable as well. I cannot say enough good things about this bike, and if you have not had the pleasure of riding the CP2 platform, it is the same engine in the MT-07, Tracer 700 etc and I recommend checking it out. It translates to the dualsport platform perfectly, and chugs along in the low RPM range like nothing else. Let's meet up near Weslemkoon for a ride!
