Hey, welcome back to the wonderful world of Teneres Dave.

The bike a beauty, where did you get it? Our local dealer hasn't had one on the floor for several months.

So, ya still got the Scrambler?

It is a tough crowd...... but soon most will be shoveling snow and riding only the key board. We'll be riding sand, and the straight flat roads to Key West!

Regards, Paul

I saw a photo of the bike after it was washed. I was surprised to see the fender and brake lines were not damaged.

That's why the magazines don't like us.. there are no owner blogs dedicated to 'character'.. no long threads further exploring this 'character' and its associated 'features' ... there's nothing to write about! And we are not allowed to discuss cameras either. This is not a fair world I tell you.

Hi guys!

I don't remember if I showed you this pics... still remembering my old Super Ten...







More pics here: http://traildreamer.com/en/reportaje...en-motosx1000/

Anyway... the 660 is still in progress:



(http://traildreamer.com/en/empieza-la-transformacion/)


And Tuesday I'm going to EICMA in Milan, I'm hoping Yamaha will show the new adventure bike with the three cilinder engine.
I tested the MT09 with this engine a week ago and was really impressed. Awesome!!

http://traildreamer.com/en/probando-la-yamaha-mt09/

If they don't build this bike I'm going to buy this engine and fix it in the 660 frame

At what point do we stop calling it a mud hole and just call it quicksand??

Damn.

Let the fun begin
Hmm, I don't know about the unmolested part. Those lights look like a form of molestation to me.

Oh I like the grey ones. I just find their owners to be a little different.
