Michael Posted May 22, 2020 Share Posted May 22, 2020 Hello gentlemen (and women)! My name is Michael, 31 years old and I live on the countryside south of Munich in the state of Bavaria in Germany. First I was a banker, in the military a bit, driving instructor and since 2012 a full time tour guide. After a long wait and pandemic lockdown I just ordered my Tenere 700. Unfortunately I need to wait until July even though the Tenere is available since last summer and there are still motorcycles waiting for buyers at multiple dealers. The reason is that I ordered it through my company. I work as a motorcycle tour guide for Edelweiss Bike Travel. Some of you might have heard of the company from Austria. So I travel and ride a lot. Roughly 25.000 km in a year (less than 5% highways, so really a lot of good stuff;). We always have company tour guide bikes but I fancied the Tenere since the beginning. I ride since I was 13 years old, street legal since I'm 15. My first bike to shift was a Kawasaki KMX 125 and my first big bike was a Yamaha XT 660X in white/red. I had a XT 660Z too but too me the Tenere 700 is the better version of my beloved Honda Africa Twin RD07 that I rebuilt completely. My last bike was a Yamaha MT09 SP and that was bike No. 26 that I owned. Yes, I do like to buy a bike, ride it, try it and resell it to get something new. I really hope and think that the Tenere will stay a long time like my Africa Twin for some awesome rides and travels. Like another trip from Germany through the Balkans to Istanbul, Turkey and back we did in 2015. The Tenere seems perfect for it. If you have any questions just ask! Ride safe! 4 Open your mind, arms and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
