Seems like a fair price... I paid closer to 14k which also included the Yamaha boxes and skid plate. The Yamaha swag seems more than adequate for general touring, but might fall short for those who require a more "robust" offroad worthy setup.

You might find this interesting on what Cycle World reviews about the bike.

From what I have read, busted knuckle orange isn't for me. I did get to ride one from Carls and liked it, but I don't enjoy maintenance work at all. I'll do what is necessary but it seems like riding orange requires more time than I have at this point in my life.

I think I will start a new thread.
I actually got out rode a few days in the past month. Got the pretty pictures pasted in my thread.

Anybody going to listen to Sam babble on tomorrow night? I'l be there. It'd be nice to see some of you! I'll probably be a little late from closing the shop, but I'll be there.

To be fair, I guess. She was pretty comfortable on the 990 Dakar we took out from Carls. They sent us with a tank of gas and said see you when you get back. I guess it was the owners bike they let us demo.

This week would probably have been the last chance to get out there. It looks like there is a lot of rain/snow coming starting Saturday.
