Couple of pictures of my latest toy





Having already owned a 660 Tenere, IMHO the “R” version of the 660 kicks ass. Lighter (easier to pick up without popping a vertebra when you drop it :rolleyes: :D), more flickable and you get than “wind in yer face” effect with it not having a fairing :thumbup:.
Came with a set of Arrow cans which, even with baffles in, are a tad loud! Knobblies are next on the shopping list.

At the mo Andy it's as well as.

This is to replace the 125 Vara and the 600 Alp on commuting duties (worked as an excuse when discussing the purchase with the Boss ;))

Once I've got a decent set of knobblies fitted, yes. It's wearing well worn Tourances at the mo, and I'd like to wear them down a bit as I get used to the bike before replacing them. Went for a little spin on it yesterday - hence the pictures, and it leans for Britain in the bends and, even with the well worn tyres, it holds a line on the slidey stuff I encountered yesterday.

But . . . . . . it does collect sh1te! It was minging by the time I got home.

So, it's new name will be the Minger then? :rolleyes: :icon_smile:.
Only girls give thier bikes names, so NO, it's not called Minger . . . . . . . . . it's called Wee Black Beastie :rolleyes: :D ;)

. . . . and it sits next to the Yella Peril and the Polished Turd in the garage :clown:

Nice one Steve
Cheers Paul :thumbup:

Yes John, a Van van would be easier to pick up than the Yam! ;) LOL!

That said, the 660R is lower to the deck than the 660Z, have you fell off this one yet Steve? LOL!

If this snow doesn't stop you'll certainly need knobblies, that said, the Van van's got such wide tyres it'll perform better in deep snow any way!

Roll on better weather so we can see this new Yamaha at work.

Speak soon guys.
