A quote from my XT 500 page;
"Eventually, meaning when one becomes available for the kind of money I would be willing to spend on it, I'd love to own a Yamaha Tenere, for now I'll stay with the simple, trusty and fun XT 500 though."
And in may 2003 this (finally) came about, with a bit of help
of eBay.de and a friend with a large enough Van to fit a bike in.
The reason it took so long is that I really am a 'cheapo' when it comes to riding a bike :)
Here are the pics as they were advertised.
And here of the bike on the road and in storage awaiting registration.
