Me tooI totally agree, honda needs to do battle with the tenere. I rode it at the ABR festival and it felt very good. If I had the funds i would be ordering mine now. hoda should look very seriously at the yam because i think they are going to sell a very big bucket full. until I can afford one I will keep on transalping, I take mine off road often, its great, its not quick or powerful but it makes me smile..
