Nah. I was thinking of upgrading the bulbs to a Xenon kit down the road. These 550FFs are spot beams so I need a flood/fog beam. I'm gonna light-farkle the bike since I'm in a position to do so

Plus, it'll help me see deer at night

My local dealer has a new white one and a used raven model with only 4000 miles on it. It's setup very nice too, TKC's, altrider skid plate, crash bars, and luggage rack.


No affiliation, just trying to help anyone looking for one. It's Pony Powersports here in Columbus OH.

Bike looks so much better with Dirt Tires. Should come like that. Would make a completely different statement to the casual shopper.

Nice shot Mike. I looked long and hard at that one before deciding I wanted a new one.

Never! That thing has survived more off road miles than any piece of gear I have owned!

Is it just me or did Yamaha make a bit of a design cock up with the back of the tank. Like the pic above, I have mine on low setting and it just looks bodge. If they had left out the designer ripple, it would just look normal when the seat was in low position. The seat and the tank look sort of divorced !

OK.... I know the answer....it's just me as always....

Nice bike BTW. I like the grey.

Wicked New Super Tenere XT1200ZE

Somebody knows when the new XT1200ZE is coming to USA and if it will have the same restrictions as the older model (passing light, ignition key chip) ... I have plans to sell my Black Pearl and buy the new to have some more entertainment ...
