Hello.  I hope to be a 700 Tenere owner soon. I can't find one. They are listed online but it seems nobody actually has one. One dealer in Baton Rouge La. sent me an email and said the had a Tenere. I drove 100 miles to find a used 1200 just like the one I was on. Pissed me off. They did it just to get me in the door and try to sell me something else. It wasn't an honest mistake either. My xtz1200 is a fine machine for 2 track and the hiway. It's left me in a BIND a few times stuck in the gumbo mud out in the boondocks. If anyone knows where I can get one within a reasonable distance of Ms  39120 (500 miles). I would appreciate it.

@Tenman Welcome and good first post, complete with eye candy!  Bummer on the dealer treatment,  but you've provided  enough info for others to help if possible.   You might consider posting your experience here, could save someone a similar bit of grief. Good luck with your search.
