1992 tenere 660
Great to be a (finally) a participating part of this community.
I am preparing for my first big trip, which will lead me from Belgium to Indonesia. Quite an upgrade from the weeklong trips i've been used to so far, but the dream was long there and now finally there is also the opportunity. (read: no downpayment/spouse/children and shortly no job). Only one impediment: No money either, so it will have to be done on a shoestring budget.
I currently own a suzuki gsxf 750 but I was planning to switch to an allroad, not for one because of my obstinacy not willing to return the same way I came, although i know that i made a wrong turn, has led me several times deep in the woods, or on some godforsaken dirt road between the fields. But i like to call this destiny
Also, i can not imagine ever buying a bike with more power than that.
Anyway, i found a 1992 tenere 660 for 1500€ and i was wondering if this might be the right bike for me. It has less than 12000km but i find it hard to believe that this would be accurate. I have near to none off-road experience but am eager to get some. I'm 186cm (6"1). It seems that the earlier models of the tenere are somewhat more popular...
So i was wondering first of all whether this bike is good value for money. Also considering how easy it would be to find (cheap) spare-parts/add-ons, necessary tweaks. Second, if it would be a good bike for me. I'm going to test-ride it anyway, but i do not have much comparison with this type of bikes, so better to ask the experts ;-)
Thanks a lot,
