And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, for they who loved the blue hated and envied the black.

He opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose the Raven, like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft.

The raven will rule for a thousand years. And thus it is.

I've sort of turned my Zed into a sport-tourer, even taking it off road a few times, lol.

I wish there was a dealer around that would let me test ride one.

Yeah, sounds like the reflash would suit you. I have a sport bike background, and flash was one of my first mods to this bike. Well worth doing. Too bad the Versys 1000 isn't available stateside, because it sounds like it fits your riding, engine and ergo preferences perfectly.

Thank you. I love the idea of the Versys 1000. Same amazing engine as the Z1000 with a splash of adventure thrown at it.

On paper it's the perfect bike... for me. Shame I can never own one.

That handle comes from a different Yamaha

Morning Gents...

looking for some guidance...

Once a year I venture out of riding distance and rent a bike for a couple weeks...

every year it has been a Gs1200....last year a GSA1200 for the Dalton hwy....

This year I have a chance ride a GS OR the Tenere in Northern Chile/Argentina...30% offroad.....

My ride at home is a KTM950SE.....

Do I gain anything by going blue this year?

Thanks.....
Mike

What you gain is a new experience.

Other than that probably not.
