    I will give you the link to the shop when I know.
    About discounts... you ca try it but this guys are Catalan people, really good in business... perhaps an order of 500 kits to Australia can help :deal :lol3

    I know they aren't cheap but this material is incredible. With it you don't need to paint your bike in the next 50 years. Really strong and thick... but expensive.

    No way!! I only know one way to learn:

    Gassss / crash / up / gasss / crash / up ... after few crashes you learn quite quick :lol3:lol3

    Pictures look more impressive than there is real... and you don't see the "ending story" of every pic :evil

    It was quite hard, the guy who did the pictures is a Yamaha dealer who runs the Yamaha Spain motocross team. He is used to do pictures to young riders, real "pros".
    So, when I did an action who looks very good to me his face was something like: that's all?? and he wanted more and more... :eek1

    Anyway I am lucky enough to survive and one day (not very far) I could show this pics to my grandsons.. :D

    The is right! We riders are divided in two groups: those who had fallen, and those who have not fall yet.....

    nice final bike!

    you & I have opposite views of what a bike should look like though.
    I pull every sticker and label off the bikes I own. I want my bikes to look low key w/o all the visual overload. My bike and riding clothes are never that clean.

    This is the world: variety!! :D

    I know I have lot of stickers and logos but I am very gratefull with all the companies that help me in a way or other to realice my dream. Every single logo has a reason to be there.

    And yes I amb a maniac. I hate go to the garage and see my bike dirty :ricky

    I completely understand about sponsor stickers.

    Any news with the 700 twin? I for one would rather see that engine in an ADV vrs the triple.

    I'm sorry to tell you I don't think this bike would be soon in the market. Probably they are going to build a TDM with the triple :puke1
    Today I'm going to be in the launch of the MT07 in Spain and as allways I'm going to ask to the Yamaha people about.
    When they see me they know what I'm going to ask and they run in another dirrection :cry

    This engine is nice and narrow, ideal for an off road bike. We must joint a group and build the bike by ourselves :deal
