Hello everyone! New member here from Central Virginia near the Blue Ridge Parkway! After a 10-year hiatus from riding, I took the opportunity for early retirement and well....I'm loving the extra time to enjoy riding again. In my search for the perfect retirement bike, I bought and sold a Kawasaki Concours and a Vstrom 650. Both were great bikes but the connie was a bit heavy and the strom was a bit light (and small). Both bikes rode well but I was searching for that perfect balance between weight, handling, and comfort. So, I recently purchased a 2020 Super Tenere ES and I think the perfect balance has been found. I’m loving the fit, quality and comfort of this bike and the cruise control is a fantastic option. I’ve already added bar risers and an upgraded seat – guess that means I’m committed. Thanks for all the great information on the forum; it has been super helpful. Take care everyone and ride safe.
