    @ Muddysoles,

    Ya right.. There was a confusion on color before opening the box even with the Yamaha Guys.. i had some ride.. Definetly bigger and wider than TDM, heavier than TDM.. but seating position is fantastic... once your bike is at hand, lets plan some ride togther. i stay in Ruwi - CBD by the way.

    Looks like you have Tourance EXP tyres, and whats that LED daytime running light?
    I am also planning for the crash guard and skid plate,, was thinking of ALTRIDER, what you say ?

    Yes it came with the Tourance EXP tyers, I like them so far. I have the AltRider crash bars and skid plate, there really nice.. Very well made, heavy duty stuff- was super easy/simple to bolt on..

    The LED light bar is a Rigid 6" SR series- I bought mine off Amazon for $200.00 USD

    Congrats on your new purchase - I don't envy you the paperwork to get the bike registered in India!
    And I'd have thought that you'd buy a bike for use in India from a reputable, local, Indian motorcycle company that's bringing out a new model every 6 months, is renowned for building tough-as-nails Enduro, Rally, Adventure, and MX bikes from 50 to 1000cc.

    In my opinion, you make the right decision. It is a very versatile bike and will take you everiwhere you want, except rough enduro. Just take care, because this bike is begging you for more leaning in sinuous roads - as stable it is ...the good aspect is that the foot pegs will "tell" you that you're close to the physical limits :wink:
