I must like the look of it as well.

My mates have 1200GS nice bikes, but I felt more at home on the Yamaha.
As I was after a bike (when fully loaded) allows you to pass a truck 50mts long with ease (100kph top gear stuff with plenty of Torque not having to change down & rev the crap out of it, & can do 1000klm in a day with ease) this suited my needs.
As far as improves the bike, yes it has made it even more enjoyable to ride (Even with the single sports muffler) But the twin set up looks more balance & sounds more off-beat note like a twin & Deeper, it now seems to have endless Torque.
Chappy.
Completely agree!!
I'm in the same way:

I see that you have the Touratech crash bars fitted, did you have to take off the Worldcrosser frame guards to fit them? Also, is the Worldcrosser bash plate fitted using the same fixings as the Yamaha accessory plate?

P.S Any more Worlscrosser photos are most welcome!
Sry for the late answer, but i was busy riding

Yes, the the little frame guards have to be removed to fit the touratech bars.
I think the bash plate has the same fixings, it looks to me that it is the same plate with the black upper things added, but i never compared with the regular yamaha bash plate.

Here is pic of my bike from the Sierra di Cadi in Spain:

Vader

Here's my beauty, the cleanest it will ever be, 2 more weeks and then I head northwest

Super Tenere gathering in Whitehorse, Yukon

Then Alaska

My little Darth Vader will be accompanying me



Painted the windshield to hide the EZPass toll tag behind, now the ADV sticker stands out even more

Great looking bike Jaumev. That has to be among the best I've seen. I only have one suggestion, two words: 'Headlight protector'

Thanks!
But the evolution Is not finished yet… work in progress :
- Front springs (harder than OEM ones)
- New sticker’s kit (more discrete…)
- Stronger protections: bash plate, crash bars, etc.
- Smaller rear mudguard
- Aux lights
- Finished production dual exhaust
- 21” front wheel
- Panniers
- others…..

Oh, don't worry, it's going to get lots of mud soon, I'm heading to Whitehorse, Yukon for the Tenere gathering and then Alaska

Check my countdown in my blog and a map of the riders attending with distances traveled

I'm in third, my name on the Super Tenere forum is "SuperTen", will be doing over 11K miles next month
