Looks like the factory skid plate as well. Why bash against rocks when you can jump over them...

Before he turned into this.

Hey, give the old guy a break. It's a dual purpose bike - right ?

And besides, someone has got to test these things properly .

To answer Boulders question, sometime in July. We have just arrived in Florida and have got to go to Alaska yet and were not doing a Nick Sanders.

And he doesn't even have a 21" wheel (or weel in Spanglish)
Looks like he has discovered Pixie Dust too.

Put a little meat on those bones and he might even have a shot at the girls.

Yes it is. On off road. Not motorcycle/semi truck.

Yeah he's a real Pro with standard "weels" or wheels in English

Only for this time I'm agree with Pluric. Its a truck. Yamaha has to create a new category in its products range

Better a 'jump off' than a 'whack off'

Let us 'Forbidden Fruit' areas know what you think of it.


On second thought, maybe not. It will just make it that much harder not to
be able to buy one.

That 660 looks the bomb.

Always wished they'd import it here, but after following the bike for many years it turns out it's got its problems/limitations. (kinda of a silly statement coming from a KLR owner!)
