I had to pay attention, they were very curious at times :-) Here is how I protected my bike at night:

UK guys - little help here. What does a used '08 go for? The prices I'm seeing seem awful cheap. Reason?

Posted in the other bitch thread, but wasnt asking. The more I think about it -What's the deal.

Seems cheap to me - http://www.gumtree.com/london/68/41674668.html

Yamaha Tenere Xt660Z Xtz660 2008 With Many Extras (£2,200)

Date posted: Thursday 9th July | Ad viewed: 271 times
Location: London


For sale is my Yamaha Tenere XT660Z, purchased new in October 2008. The bike is in perfect condition, is in the best colour, and has also had a full 6,000 mile main dealer service just 10 miles ago. It is fitted with the following really useful extras :-

Yamaha Engine Bars
Yamaha Centre Stand
Full Touring Scottoiler
Givi Monokey Rack
Puig Screen (10 cm taller than standard screen)

As for the performance of the bike, it will cruise all day at 80 mph, without any vibration, and still return over 50 mpg, whilst on twisty roads it will easily stick with a BMW R1200GS, and on gravel or dirt will leave one for dead.

I have had five Africa Twins, until now my favourite bike, but the Tenere will outperform one in every respect and is much more comfortable into the bargain. It may have less BHP than an Africa Twin but it also has less weight and more torque, and from very low down. It really is an excellent bike. The Puig screen, although very expensive is also very aerodynamic and makes a huge difference when crusing at high speed. The original screen will aslo be included with the sale.

I'd be extremely surprised if that was the correct price on the ad. Most used ones I've seen have sold for £4000+.

The cheapest on Autotrader at the moment is £4499.

If Yamaha brought that bike to the US, I'd have one.
