    Yamaha mt10

    Just seen a yamaha mt10 in the flesh! Pictures make them look crap but in the flesh they are stunning! An awesome looking beast with some nice touches on them sitting on it felt very similar to my mk 2 tuono! If I had 10k to spare I would be seriously tempted by one! The only real gaff yamaha has made with them is the gull grey and yellow one a truly crap colour scheme!

    Yep...must admit Johnny Five is firmly in the frame.
    Will be trying one out as soon as possible.
    Would have bought a V4 Tuono 1100 in a hearbeat....but it's Piaggio innit?
    Never again.

    Yeahhh.....it's deffo a marmite job isn't it?
    either love it or hate it.
    I quite like it tbh though...it's a refreshing change from the norm, and it's nowhere near as bad as the stroke victim lookalike S1000R

    (Grin....Jury's still out on the R12 mate ...maybe....watch this space)
    Thanks from grin factor

    All it needs to finish it off is a bit of dribble over the front mudguard....
    I particularly like this one.....it appears to have stabilisers....

    I took one out well two actually and found the one with normal suspension rode better than the electronic adjusted one,it was just too hard for our roads and I set it to soft too,still slower than the Tv4 as well

    Went over to Grimsby today... they have all 3 colour's in the showroom...

    Black probably edges it over the blue..... not sure about the battleship grey with dayglow wheels !

    comfy seat, bit of a stretch for a short arse like me... mite go for a test on one when a dealer near me gets em in... so i can play out in the sticks on one....... rather than... Grimsby !

    Just realised that the gaping mouth on the S1000r is a massive radiator! Wow! Does it run at 50C

    That said, Rizlas photos of the VR4 with headlamp removed, looks like the elephant man!
