What a beautiful motorcycle!

Yamaha is crazy not selling them in America.

You have to remove the "?v=0" after .jpg when you paste the url. Like this:

Just got mine, and loving it. It is a great bike pretty much straight out of the box. I took it for a little trip into the hills today and had a blast. Great on mountain roads, gravel tracks, around town and on the inevitable highway in between.

It is a great place to ride. I live in Bergen, western Norway. That pic was about 20 mins from where I live. There are many great places to ride here, with fjords, mountains, rivers, forests, glaciers all on our doorstep. My decision making process of where to go usually is to just point the bike in one direction and go, and see where I end up. The weather is great today, so we will see where I end up.

Its a good thing they dont sell those here in the states because I would just have to go right out and buy one. I would think that would really fill the hole left by KTM discontinuing the 640 Adventure and not replaceing it with a 690 version. My biggest issue would be choosing between the desert tan or the red over white.

Not to mention all the money Yamaha is saving me and you (possibly thousands of other Americaans) in this economic downturn by not having this available in the USA... Thank's Yamaha!!! I keep my honda XR650L for many more years!!! That will save me thousands!!!
