Editor ‘Arris has snagged himself a Yamaha Super Ténéré as a long term tester for the summer.
He’s already gone and organized (in the loosest meaning of the word) a trip to Newfoundland and Labrador on the bike and will be taking it into some trails around New Brunswick to see how the beast handles some dirt.
