Plus it looks like a motorcycle and not some weird boxy looking futuristic attempt to hide batteries.

Dude!!! Is that ^^^ a Trailway???

That's F-ing AWESOME!!!!!!!

I still wish Yamaha would make a 500 - 650 cc version of that. I figure it'd be fairly simple... IF Yamaha had a 650 thumper... but they don't.

I'm still wrestling with what I'm going to replace my FLHTK with.

Two days ago, I was dead-set on a new CVO Road Glide.

Then I saw the Victory Cross Country Tour.

And, of course, the BMW K1600GTL.

But I get downright giddy riding an R1200GS Adventure.

And the R1200RT sure looks like a bunch of fun.

It's a shame the insurance check won't cover them all.

Sure they do. It's just sold in other markets and in their 4-wheelers. The 660/650 motor is very common motor as long as you don't want it in a motorcycle in this market.

Folks THIS is what happens when you breed a TW225 with a Honda Ruckus....
A 500~650???? Yea but smaller market than a KLR I'd figure.... Might be a hoot tho.

Looks like someone put a TW200 and a box of Legos in a blender.

Still in Guzzi mood, today it's this, and this color only!




Sorry about the huge image, it had to be done!
I'm sporting wood for that bike too. I have a Monster Tri Color that I would consider swapping for one of those.

Now that's just a damn shame... that would make one hell of an XTW.

AND... if they keep it budget priced (simple frame, basic suspension, tuned for low end instead of uber-high rpm power, etc.)... they MIGHT just take some of the KLR sales away from Kawasaki...

I did say MIGHT... the KLR does have quite a "cult-ish" following...

Yeah, in USA.
No one knows it even exists in Europe.
I've never seen one on the road in my life.

I'd like a 750/800 Vstrom in a more dirt worthy chassis and minus the plastic fairing.

There are no KLR's in Europe? That may be the only ADV bike we have that you don't. I will trade you for an African Twin or a 660 Tenere.

Α Diavel please. Today its sunny, 18 Celsius. Just about the perfect day to have a blast to a cape near the city. 60 something kilometers from here passing through all the coastal area. Oh yeah, dreaming is for free at the moment in Greece ...
(saw a black Diavel the other day, first time in flesh. It really looks the part and I dont like cruisers or cruiserlike bikes)

I'm becoming obsessed with finding a Wee-Strom. It's hard to find them at the price I have in my head and at this time of year...not the best time to sell a bike. When is Spring going to get here?
