Unfortunately, importing a vehicle into the US is not that easy, especially a model that has never been sold here. Officials at Yamaha USA just need to stop riding the short bus and get with the program. Here in the US Yamaha has a rather large gap in there enduro lineup that needs to be filled.

Anyway, back to the subject at hand....I would do a 660 Tenere for RTW bike unless there was no chance of mud or sand. If that was the case, the 1200 Tenere would be my choice.

I had a GSA, then a Super Ten (slightly modified ) and the Super is more versatile.
I changed to the 660 because I do mostly off road trips and sometimes alone. a loaded 1200 is too heavy for me if I don't have friends to help when I stuck.

Yes, my thoughts exactly.

Being retired when the rest of my riding buddies are working, I tend to ride alone quite a bit. When riding in very remote areas near my home, I'm definitely concerned about getting into a situation where I can't pick up the bike for some reason or get stuck. I do carry a small and very portable hand winch but thats somewhat limited if I'm in an area with nothing to anchor it to. I just picked up a Delorme In-Reach so I'll have communications where there is no mobile signal.
