What i want

what i want is a new Yamaha Venture.

a NEW ONE. not the same 1999 carbureated model,
with 2013 on the VIN plate.

i want Yamaha to restyle the Venture to look more
like the Victory Cross Tour, and put the 1700cc
new VMax motor in it.

Yamaha's asking $18 grand for their "new" 1999
Ventures. They ought to be able to build the bike that
i describe for $ 20k, and sell about 4 times as many units
of the NEW Venture.

am i wrong?

Well damn it, it's not like I can afford any of the stuff I post!

If you lived here, you couldn't either, so trust me, you're better off.


Imagine bikes being twice as expensive as in the USA and making just
$500/month on average.

I'm gonna "not stop" right away!


Here's one with the same engine, the 660 thumper as in the MT03 posted
above (and XT660R, XT660X and XT660Z-Tenere)



The Aprilia Pegaso Strada Factory with some carbon bits, more ground
clearance (or was it just seat height) and wider bars then stock.

The bike also runs on spoke whees and is about 4lbs lighter then the regular
Strada.

Oh yeah, radial front brake too, the regular doesn't have that either.
