If I did not have my Beta in the garage, the Tenere 700 would be setting next to my Super Tenere. You made a very smart purchasing decision for an all around motorcycle that is capable for most anything with the exception of hard core single track. Also the reliability factor and simplicity is a huge plus. The KTM's have nothing over this bike when it comes to function and fun. Also the wrenching and breaking down are a non issue with this bike.
