660xtz tenere 1996-should I buy?
I'm fresh from testing a 660xtz tenere, year 1996. The milage is reasonable, seems to have been used largely of sealed surfaces... price is relatively good value,
should I buy?
I live in the mountains, though it will be mostly used for a 60km return commute, to the big town, though I hope to give it a fair bit of hair pin exposure...
though I feel I'm getting old, and I've had three years off biking since a casual car driver showed me the tarmac. The questions I have hanging in my head are:
Was not the seat just a little bit to high? standing I'm 5ft 10, or 175cm, I think, but with the gate of an ape and the inside leg measurement to match.
I believe maintenance should be cheap and easy, but wouldn't the Honda Transalp be a better bet, being a touch more refined, and pleasant on the open road, with the wife on the back and picnic basket under her arm?
