Here are a TDM i had a couple of years ago, pretty nice bike for touring, -03 model sold brand new in -05, i bought it in the spring of -07with 3400 km on the speedo and put another 6000 km on it before i sold it the same year, was just not my kind of motocycle.
Nice engine but i think i should have some moore tork in the low end. Changeing/shifting gear, up and down all the time, isn´t what i want. No tork at all under 5000 rpm. The bike handles really well and the brkes from the early R1 does it job very well.
If Yamaha just would to build that Super tenere, this engine rebulit with bettter low end tork, tubular steelframe, 18" rear, 21" in front, 180 kg and so on... ......yummie
My god what at sweet ride it could be, come on Yamaha. GoGoGo!
