Those are the ones my friend bought, in Amazon. Even living in Spain, and the goods in the US, the shipment was very fast.

Yup, I'm in Japan and got them in about four days with $20 shipping.

I leave mine on all the time. If they block any light it can't be too much; it feels like there is someone behind me with brights on when night riding.

What lights are they you have mounted on the crash bars, and your thought of them?

I sure hope you keep us posted on the new bike and your improvements! I know I have enjoyed both the modifications and your ride reports on theTenere.

They're Piaa 1100 leds. They throw out a good amount of light for their size and the build quality appears excellent. But they've been a bit overwhelmed by the Morimoto Elite HID headlights, which is incredibly bright, so I've turned them outward to light up the sides of the road more. Someday I might remount them on the handlebars so they turn with the steering.

Pissed 660 Tenere

I am soooo jealous of Jaumev having this bike that we can't get in USA.

My only hope is that as soon as he gets it tricked out just the way he wants it that Yamaha announces a 450 motor based Dual Sport (to capitalize on theis success in the 2014 Dakar Rally with Cyril Despres) for sale only in the USA.

No XT660Z in the US for some reason. Same with the 250 Tenere that South America gets to play with, however we happened to see a Baby Tenere in Brevard, NC a few weeks ago so if you have the money and connections... anything is possible.
