Hello everyone , I sold my first tenere far to quickly , so have traded in my gen 3 MT09 and on Saturday pick up a blue tenere 700 , standard version , Yamaha engine bars , tail tidy and black widow can . This one will be my winter commute bike with some weekend off roading too .

I done the very same thing..bought a 2021 rally lovely blue colour ran it foo r 1500 miles then sold it to a dealer...wind buffering being my excuse plus reducing my fleet to two bikes....then mid summer took a test drive on the world raid...forgot just how nice the motor was...came across a blue 2021  t7 on a return journey from Wales..bezarly I hated the blue on black colour decided to view and see what my gut reaction would be...the brain is funny thing because this time I couldn't imagine a nicer colour...so bought it and again have ran it for 800 buffet free miles  using a non peeked helmet.....love it😁

I had a black one this time last year , but due to moving house , I never had time for it , I was riding it 6 days a week though . So went back to the gen 3 09 . Now it’s winter and I’m still riding 6 days a week , I thought I’d give the tenere another go . The blue is awesome . If it doesn’t work for me , then I’ll change after winter . BUT , yesterday , the first day , was excellent , I’ll be fitting Michelin Anakee wilds I recon , they read good and I am on tarmac 6 days with mud diverts when time allows , lots of sideway arse movement yesterday on the scorpions . Love it 2167B6B1-E419-4C96-9D18-57A1112C7CD2.jpeg.f18416b87749e0b2d74923e4218564b4.jpeg

I’ve been drooling over a 22 MT09 sitting at my local dealer. Brain storming the budget but with the holidays and a new T7 in September it’s just out of reach…

 

The T7 CP2 combo when uncorked is a real hoot, but I do miss the 50-120mph blast out of the corner and down the straight from the liter bike days. 
 

The T7 is the best jack of all trades cycle by a wide margin, mines a keeper. Only thing that bothers about mine is the giant Tenere across the tank and faring, love the blue hate the F^*@#%^! sticker. And the damn clear coat over the sticker on tank. 
 

Still saving up for the 70 degree, blue sky, no wind day to enjoy a proper sport bike.

I got the tenere for winter playing , commuting too . I have on order a cyan storm MT09 , I have owned 3 already . 2 x black n one blue . They are a great big , but all 3 broke down when wet , one had faulty throttle bodies from Yamaha.

The blue one had the faulty bits , not fun in middle of winter and it wouldn’t shut down , quite a few sketchy roundabouts had 😂 tic over around 4K on most days , Yamaha tech on video phone dealer was amusing , the dealer stripped the bike to the bare bones , they got there in the end
