Finally got a new ride! I'm excited to accessorize it over the winter, and take my first ride to the moonshine lunch run. Come on spring! 2016 (non ES) yamaha super tenere.
Welcome to the Super - 10 family and congrats, they are great bikes. I have a 2015 ES myself. If you haven't already done so checkout www.yamahasupertenere.com

You sure struck off in an unexpected direction! I think that is a good choice though. I rode one on a Yamaha Demo ride back in '14 but it was the 1st Gen. I really liked it. It was actually faster than I expected. I think you may miss some of the wind protection but other than that it should be awesome.

This is true mostly for the feet. I fitted the optional tall shield and the winglet deflectors so upper body wind protection is almost as good as the ST. I never needed waterproof boots on my ST though, evidently the shape of the lower faring protected my feet from the rain pretty well. With the Super-T however I got wet feet anytime there was substantial rain fall for long enough. Picked up a pair of Tourmaster Solution Air water proof boots and all is good again.

I obviously have a lot to learn about adv riding and the community, but it's something new, and exciting for me. I've heard they're very capable off road, and on, and that touring on it is really smooth; so I'm anxious to try it out. I know the windshield needs to be changed, and that I need engine guards, and skid plates just for starters.

As for going a different direction, you're right Redfish; it's not the way I really wanted to go, but the BMW, was way more than I wanted to spend, the FJR didn't fit me like I wanted, and the Triumph was also a little out of my reach (as I didn't want to spend that much) and the support network is not as good as that for Yamaha, or Honda.

I guess getting new boots isn't the worst thing in the world

Thanks for all the support, and comments.
