Nope its perfectly dutch made out of three dutch terms, bagger (Mud) ragger (He who messes about (from raggen; messing about) and rij, a suffix to make a bussines out of a verb Wassen (washing) +rij =Wasserrij (Laundrette)

So once long ago there was an old hag who founded the Mud Messingabout Laundrette (its not common in english to string verb+object+suffix together, which makes Dutch a verry difficult language ;-)
Baggerraggerrij = Messing in the Mud Laundrette



When i was Younger, i had two brothers in messing about, and we well messed about in the Mud, so we formed a loosely knit toghether Club of Mobile Messing around Men...
Partners in sylliness are Bertje & Marc posing here in our protest to ongoing debates while riding out "what shal we do, can i have a fag, i have to pee, etc" so we got to the now common dutch frase "niet zeiken, maar rijden" which translates into "Ride, don't piss about"
(sorry for all the rude language btw, but then we were young ones)

Fantastique!!!
Black is OK in snow or cold climates but over here black metal petrol/gas cans don't work so well... even black helmets aren't a smart choice in summer.

Seat Heating.....is this a wind up or do you know something the rest of us (i.e. me) do not know ?

Hey Guys, had her for about 6 months now and loving her more and more. Best purchase I have ever made guys. This baby is a keeper for the rest of my life. Top bike, highly recommended...



My old girl is fitted with SW Motech crash bars and Pannier racks. Also fitted the headlight protector after finding out what a replacement bulb is worth from Yamaha Australia.. .. Yet to fit the SW Motech Bash Plate which I picked up just the other day and oxford heated grips.
Planning to fit knobbies on her at some stage but enjoying her too much as she is.
Noticed an Arrow exhaust fitted to one here in the thread. Many guys out there with them fitted and if so how are they?? I have heard them on the old 750cc Super Ten's and they sound beautiful.
Cheers,
Johnnie

Johnnie,

Can you post some detailed pictures of the bars (fitting points) and the bash plate so I can see how they attach and how strong they are likely to be, compared to the cheese Yamaha ones.

I have to say I am sadly disapointed at the farkles that Yamaha have produced for this bike. It seriously lets down a wonderful bike.

YMMV...I used to live in Arizona and the summers there are 110 to 115 degrees. I used a black helmet and I was fine...while it was hot on the exterior underneath it was cool as like sweat and shade = evaporation/cool

Johnnie, Would you post up a few pics of the rear view of your bike with the panniers attached? I'm thinking about the SW Motech racks with Micatech V2 panniers and would like to see how things look. The SW Motech racks are asymmetrical, I believe.

Nice bike. I ordered mine in blue. I have a black V Strom and it shows dust and small scratches easily.
