Installed a new Sargent Seat today. I think the shape is an improvement over the stock one, but the foam is as hard as a horse saddle. It's at least a half inch lower than stock, but wider so my reach to the ground is about the same. Moves me about a half inch further from the bars because I'm sitting lower or further back now. I sat on a used Strom recently that had a Sargent seat and it seemed much softer.
What year Tenere are you riding? My 12 needed some help but I never got around to getting it done. I just purchased a 2017 and it’s a much more responsive bike. Both had slip on exhaust but nothing else performance wise.
I've got the Cobalt Blue '17. Totally stock. No flash. It's quick and exceeds 120mph....easily, so I haven't seen the need for anything else. It's not an FJ/FJR, but it's not supposed to be. But, it'll also keep up with just about anything that you'll find on the street. Favorite bike, ever.
Sorry, I've been on the road from Vegas to Orlando. Unfortunately, I don't have my Tenere anymore, sold it a few years back. Not only that, the person I sold it to posted it for sale again here just a few months ago!

I can pin the thread to the top of the forum, I'm still learning the new software, so not sure if I can pin it on the front page, but I'll look into it.


I live outside of Albany, New York. Is it possible to come to you and have you remove the box and update it on my 2014 es?

When I did the Ouray event, I think I had 95 on the books, and about 150'ish actually showed up. I remember you there, you know :)

Anyhow, your thoughts ?

Thanks ~ Jaxon
I've basically given up looking for it and just read it 'IF' it comes up in 'what's new'.... Can you guys make like a banner to promote or talk about this ? So many other forums do this to promote the group, friends, and 'THE' ride. Any how, just an idea... I don't think its going to gain much traction at all with out it being talked about each day. Other wise 10 guys are going to show up.
I pretty much stop by the forum about everyday and don't often see that 'Ride' posted or even talked about. I have a feeling its going to die on the vine. I don't know if you guys can or have any interest but I think we need to move this to the front page. You don't have to go look for it and search every time you want to see that post. For me, I'm not a computer guy, and its a DRAG trying to find it.
Hello my friend !

Its good to see that you still have your Tenere. LOL It seems that so many folks are selling the original. From the original crew. LOL

Just wanted to toss out an idea, As you know I've hosted a few Tenere "rallies" around the country. I would like to take part this summer being talked about in Ouray.
My email is Email me and I'll be glad to send you my GPX file (for download to your GPS) with waypoints for gas, lodging and points of interest. -JEP-
so did the sale to the guy from NY fall through or are they still avail?
Cheers Anthony,
I just acquired an s10 and looking into getting it flashed. If you could send me an email at to discuss that would be great. Thanks, Felix
Do you still have the Kaoko throttle lock? I'm here in Edmond.

Is this one that will work with bark busters? I think it would.

Pete, this is Chuck(hpillc) from the ST forum. Can you put me on the list for a gen2 dash infill? Thanks
Hey, Anthony, Gary here in Rockwall, TX. I have a 2018 non-ES bone stock Tenere. I am NOT happy with the way it runs, especially taking off from a stop and low RPM maneuvers. I am willing to make necessary changes to the bike to make it run better. If you have exhaust, slip-on, air filter, etc. recommendations, I would like to hear them and be willing to make them.
Hello Anthony. I've got a 2012 Super Tenere I'd like to have flashed. You're the guy I've heard. My email is if you could let me know how to get started on this, Thanks, David
Sorry - lets make it a L and not an XL - based on your measurement chart for the width, which I presume is measured laying flat side to side -correct?
