I tell you what's pretty funny - on it's US website Yamaha is touting the Adventure qualities of the ST and on every picture it talks about the "Wonderlust" I guess they didn't realize it should be Wanderlust - the desire to Wander and discover new places.

Really interested, and wife says I can do some browsing. How bad are the passenger pegs? Need leg room for growing co-pilot.

My wife is 5'7" and rode behind me on a 4,500 kms round trip to Skagway with no issues.

My 5' 2" lady friend likes the rear more than a 'Wing, due to sitting higher. I had a 6' 240 guy on for an hour, two days ago, and he was fine.

Obviously, it's subject and YWMMV (Your Wife's Mileage May Vary)

btw - The FJR1300 pegs will bolt right up, so the floorboards are both available and easy to make:

I pretty proud of my first year in motorcycling, 20,000 miles in total. 5 k on the KLR and 15 k on Vader. Yep, pretty hardcore.
Another Vader? :

Mine is the original Vader, I even have Vader hanging from the back of the bike, a gift from my daughter because she says the bike is all black, I ride in black gear and even have a black helmet

My Vader made it to Alaska this past July, he got all muddy but after a wash it a was all good

Glad to see the White and Red version is coming the U.S., anybody know if the World Crosser Kit will be available in the states too?
And how much does the WC kit add, or can you just purchase it separately in Europe?

Though Yamaha is choosing not to sell the *real* "World Crosser" concept bike...

http://www.yamaha-motor.eu/eu/produc...|ymeGallery1||

They are selling a form of "World Crosser" model over in Europe...

http://www.yamaha-motor.eu/eu/produc...d-crosser.aspx

And, yes... You can get all the bits and parts to *make* one out of your own Super Ténéré... That is if you are willing to order all the parts from a European source...

Just FYI...

I had done 11,000 miles on mine before it was 6 weeks old, from Houston to the Arctic Circle and beyond. True, only about 1,000 miles of that was unpaved.

I don't think you can that sleek secondary tank in the pillion seat area. That would have me interested. The rest is mainly optics / decals and some parts you can get in better versions from 3rd parties. Or what am I missing?
