This is an interesting thread.
I know Tom Warr and his bike is in excellent condition, well used, but also well cared for.
I have a 97 Adventure brochure I picked up in 97 and it clearly shows the bike you posted with the orange saddlebags. The weird shape is due to the fact that the saddlebag is designed to carry one front and one rear spare tire. The brochure also clearly states that the Adventure is not available in the U.S. I haven't looked at the brochure in quite a while, but if I remember correctly, it also has a picture of a bike with the low twin pipes.
Maybe tonight I'll pull it out of the archives and look it over.
