I guess they sold them all, nothing shows up on their WEB site..I wanted to pass along what I thought was a good deal. I just learned that Maxey’s in Oklahoma City will be selling all there new Super Tenere 700 for list, as the OTD price.
No mark up, no freight, no prep, no extra crap.
They said that is out the door, down the road.
I thought that was probably a good deal for the folks looking. I thought I would pass along the info if it might help someone out there. Sales man is Chris
I don’t have any association with them. A friend bought a bike and learned about it, and then I double checked.
Same here. She's the only vehicle that I've ever bought without a test drive. BUT, I am Yama-biased (no worry about reliability), I knew the weight wasn't going to be an issue, I loved the bike's purpose/mission (checked all the boxes), and she was gorgeous. No regrets. I know I'm in the minority, but the T7 doesn't do a thing for me. Nothing against the bike, just not me.It would be nice to ride before buying as well. Although I had never ridden the Super Tenere before I bought one.

When I bought my '12 S10, having missed the PDP window, I hit the local dealer and they had two or order. One blue, one black. The owner was dealing with me directly and he told me he really couldn't recall which color was sold and which was available. Then he tells me, very seriously, that he has a number of people that want to see, sit on, ride this bike when it comes in. I told him flat out, I don't need to see it, sit on it and make vroom, vroom noises or test ride it and I don't care what color it is. I'm here to buy it. Needless to say, in that time frame, I didn't get a bargain, but I did buy that bike. No regrets what so ever.It would be nice to ride before buying as well. Although I had never ridden the Super Tenere before I bought one.
For a bike that sees a lot of pavement I can see the advantage. But for off road travel tubes are the way to go. On my Super Tenere I alway carry spare tubes. Another advantage of tubes is ability to run double rim locks. With a stiff carcass tire you can ride out a flat without worry of tire coming off the rim. At freeway speeds on the highway it's a great safety feature to get you in a safe spot to repair.What makes it unsuitable for tubeless conversion? I am under the impression that nearly any wheel can be converted with the right process.
How so very true Eric. I was lucky enough to have a good few hours of saddle time on a 1st gen S10 in 2013. I saved for a big bike for almost 5 years after that. Almost any bike can have the ergos setup to fit the rider.Nothing personal, but when you narrow the field of bikes down to the kernel of what you want, there is no need to test ride. Easier for the S10 than the T7, IMHO. The number of shaft drive ADV bikes that were not BMW was pretty slim.
Åh shitI have ridden a few Versys 650s and they were the most vibrating hand numbing junk that I can remember riding.
Steve, I had that same basic bike for close to 35,000 miles. It was a fantastic touring machine that could be converted to a sport bike with quick removal of the bags. I did nothing more than slap on a set of spare Renthal dirt bars, brass bar inserts and bar end weights. Vibration problem solved. No cruise control. With large paddle on the left and narrow paddle on the right, I could do easy 500+ mile days.I have ridden a few Versys 650s and they were the most vibrating hand numbing junk that I can remember riding.
It's a 1.85" rim not a 2.15" like on other big adv bikes.What makes it unsuitable for tubeless conversion? I am under the impression that nearly any wheel can be converted with the right process.
