Tenere vs XT600E
Hi Guys, planning an Africa trip, 3 months around west africa, bit of desert, bit of coast, all road types (and lack of). My big contempaltion at present is what bike to use.
I am by no means a mechanic so simple is better, reliable is paramount and obviously I need to be able to turn it into a bit of a on/off road tourer (can this be done with the 600E or if the frame a bit light?).
In addition the cost variance between the 2 is fair. It is not so much the purchase cost that concerns me, it is rather that the more expensive it is, the more worries one would have about its safety while left unattended, over night etc..
A further factor, I would be using it to commute while in London.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
