    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.

    thats something Yamaha has neglected recently. a sporting twin.


    the super tenere doesn't count but maybe we'll get a 660 minarelli engined something or other in the states soon enough.

    The bodywork bugs me, I don't like bikes where the fairing is bigger than the engine cases. Still I dig it.

    The problem I have with a project like this is I can't help but look at it and see other places to shave weight. I understand the choices made by the builder to make it look like a factory setup but the hotrodder in me says why do you need such a heavy muffler or all that subframe real-estate

    Yeah Tony but you're English so nobody cares......
    (that's a joke for those who didn't pick up on it)
    I bet you'd like it if it spewed blue smoke and sounded like a coffee can full of angry hornets, yeah?

    I think without the double bubble screen and a bit shorter tail it'd be pretty close. Dunno how heavy that muffler is unless it's the visual element you're referring to..

    Now a tuned SuperTenere 1200 motor could be fun in a similar chassis.

    I think there are too many generations between the engine design and the frame design. I would like to put an XS650 in an FZ600 frame.
