Stunning!!! Awesome 660, Jaumev! Which bike do you like more? The Super Tenere 1200 or the Tenere 660? (Sorry if this has been asked before)

Damn you, Yamaha. Why??? WHY???
I'd buy one today if it were sold here.

I enjoyed a lot the 1200 but I'm getting old

I do mostly off road and now I do some solo trips, so the 660 is a more logical bike to me.
I like it a lot.

Pictures of your bike are showing up all over Facebook. It seems it's the poster child for bringing the XT660 to the USA.

That's perfect and without question the looking Tenere out there. Don't do any more to it - just ride and enjoy.

Mr Yamaha take note - the next generation of the Ten needs this suspension and wheels (your WR450 parts bin is there to be raided) less weight and a "normal" muffler like this.

Awesome effort jaumev

Thanks!

Agree, Yamaha has all the ingredients for the perfect Ten, just some few kgs less and some HP more... the rest just take components from other bikes.

I enjoy a lot riding... and farkling, I can't promise you I don't do any more to it

JaumeV, did you consider the Aprilia Dorsoduro at all before going with the Ténéré?

No.
I prefer a bike that you can find parts and dealers all over the world.
I never saw a Dorsoduro but I think it is a road bike...

Cheers!

The Aprilia Dursoduro is a Supermoto-styled Shiver, with a small increase in suspension travel. Even with suspension upgrades, it doesn't have the frame or chassis geometry of an all-roads or dual-sport motorcycle, and could never do what Jaumev does with the XT660Z.

So the Dursoduro is an scrambler, and the XT660Z is a rally bike, so to speak, or it could be an Enduro bike, in spite of its weight.

But more relevant , and I agree with Jaumev, so for me one important part to consider is that with yamaha we have ubiquity of parts and workshops, it's a basic bike, is cheap to maintain. It can run a self test with its control panel (so no scanner needed) , and it's easy to modify.

I crashed mine several times and in spite that we only have about some 150 units in Colombia, parts where available either from the local yamaha warehouse or from the regional warehouse in Miami. In no more than 15 days I could get my spare part.

Hi guys, I am so happy with my bike that I decided to participate in a race in the Spanish Rally TT championship.

There is a trail category and I thought it could be a good excuse to do a hard test to the bike… and to me

Lots of Spanish Dakar top rides use this championship as training for the Dakar so it’s great to see them flying in their bikes. The problem to me was that we all did the same circuit and had the same time to do it but with 100 kgs and 30 years more it was really hard!!

There were 60 riders, most of them in enduro bikes. The track was closest to an enduro than a rally race so most of the trail bikes where out. I crashed but fortunately nothing really serious so I ended in 22th position and win my category (only finish two).

I know… I’m crazy but it was a great experience… the closest I can do to my dream to race a Dakar.
Here it is the review and pics (sorry it is in Spanish): http://traildreamer.com/un-dia-de-carreras/

Ténéré weight

Hi

At last I think I have an idea of my bike's weight.

- 199,8 kg full
- 181,6 kg empty

Here it is how I did it: http://traildreamer.com/en/peso-de-l...-traildreamer/

Do you think it is ok?

Looks scientifically sound measurement!
Manufacturer`s dry weight can be really dry!, no fork oil etc, so a bit mischieving!

It really brings in perspective what an achievement it is compared to riding a rallye-bike
