Good On Ya, JOE.!!!
Congrat's being back on 2-wheels..!!
Thanks 20v : ya beat me to it. B^)
Outstanding. Very happy for you.
I think that bike is beautiful.
I can't afford one, and have a prejudice against Euro bikes. But, if I did have spare cash sittin' around, I can't guarantee that I wouldn't put my prejudice aside, for long enough to try it out for a few months.
Understatement of the decade...
...and that horrible off-idle dip that is so obvious when you ride it (and in all the dyno charts that have been posted).
I figure it is a troll.
This. I'm not gonna bite.
We can definetely see it
Congrats and glad you back on the road
Maybe he's just not punch-drunk off the Blue koolaid, and wanted to initiate some positive discourse.
My clutch fuse fix cost maybe .50 cents.
Geology Rocks.....YOU rock!
As for the new water-boxer.........Drop dead gorgeous bike.
It calls to me. It promises to be the one.
Then I look out my window and see the one that actually has delivered. It has that wasp-eyes-face and it says with the upmost confidence, "promises promises".
It pizzes me off that the wasp is right. No good reason for it.
Brilliant bike. It's been out just over a week and has only had 3 recalls. Handles great if you are partial to tank slappers. Looks can be deceptive.
No problem, I've also sent you a PM with more info then you probably need. Don't forget to sign in for the Ouray Super Tenere gathering in June.
Have you got a link for that ?
I may be able to get there.
I believe the BMW is manufactured from surplus Yamaha mufflers
Hey Joe, I'm so happy for you my friend!
I should planning my trip back to Denver so we can ride some together!! or you come over here in europe and explore some old countries! ^^
I think YAMAHA was overcautious with the first three gear but since that's a 50c fix I don't care.
Secondly as I have always said YAMAHA cold have come out with a high HP high compression motor but that would put a few spanners in the works for me.
But for those that only use bikes on road or soft road, the way these things are set up now, and that includes Tiger Ex, Versys and I assume the new DL1000 etc it works well I suppose.
If that is the way things are going I am sure YAMAHA could do a triple or a big power twin with lot's of maps,
We'll see how it goes. I am sure they have one of each back at lab right now.
As a first release I am sure YAMAHA wanted a bike that was bullet proof and could travel around the world with few issues. It's just that not many people do that.
So it may be a good time for YAMAHA to release a TRX1200 or a lighter more fragile XT1200.
My tenere seems to be wearing the rear brake quite quickly. At 20k miles it is mostly consumed. It has not been ridden hard.
I would like to know if it is possible to grind this rotor like with a car.
If not how much money is a new rear rotor?
See you there.
