    It is Called the "yamaha MT1", it is a useless piece of junk designed for the American market but somehow never got there.

    it is 1700cc, it has waaaaaay too much torque, roars like an airplane and is terrible on the curves, the brakes arent enough to stop the enormous weight ... and it is specially heavy on your wallet, since it does something stravagant like 20-30mi/gal. and has a fuel range of about 4 blocks...some people report 5 if you are easy on the throtle.

    I have seen it in person, and it looks marvelows... forget about noisy exausts when this one accelerates the sound is so low that you can actually feel the pression on your chest (I was on the back of a HDSoftail when I saw it)... its such a mean machine that she actually bullies smaller bikes...

    Hi Mike and Diane,

    Thanks heaps for all the help you gave me while I was in Cali. The extra week I got in Colombia when you helped me extend my bike permit was one of the best I had. I also really appreciate the help with getting the chain, sprocket and tyres changed. I have added a link to your website on my thanks page.

    All the best,
    Annette

    You're very welcome and thanks for the thanks :clap

    Did you hook up with Sylvain and Court in Ecuador or are they to busy opening up an ice cream joint on the coast?

    Safe travels!
