Lets do something Special :-)

Wouldn't this one sell much better than the dull Earl-Grey



Should blend in well next to my Wesp, this Hoornaar

But for the Super Tenere, Sonauto blue's the right color

Hey guys,

there's a collection of images on these pages that if you look at the large versions, make droolworthy desktops.

http://www.yamaha-motor-europe.com/d...ture&pageNum=5

this one fills my 24" monitor. I may not get any work done now as I have to clear those annoying apps out of the way so I can see it...

Polish? POLISH !?!

An adventure bike should be *DIRTY*, telling tales of its adventures by showing its scars !!!




Eventually its basic color should be covered totally

I agree black is best, but IMHO an adventure bike is not supposed to be "shiny" like a hot rod. Yamaha should use a matte finish instead of glossy paint. Like Triumph has on some of the Street Triples, or Harley does with the "Black Denim" finish. That would look badass.

I did that once with a bike, but the trouble with eggshel is its verry wearprone, where a gloss paint kan be hard as rock.

ALthough it gives beautifull wearspots, because in time you polish the kneecontactplaces to a high shin on a further matte tank...

So totally agree with matte finish, but it will be problematic with the high-gloss clientele, who are the main target of this hyper-traveler :-)



(actually i would like a JPS also myself, but that's more something for on a R1)

Importing one to US

Anybody know what procedures are to import one of these to the US.

I mean, can I go to London, buy one and ship it home?

I am more interested in the 660xtz.

Thanks
