    I love this! Nice!!

    Like a couple others have said, we have a couple TUs in our training fleet. LOve the fuel injection and the smoothness.
    Brakes are really good, though.

    Can't buy them in California. I'm not sure why, but I'm thinking it is probably due to something with lack of emissions control or somesuch.

    It was one of my favorite bikes in the stable at one of the ranges in MO. Really REALLY good front brake.

    I was thinking the same thing so I went to the dealer yesterday and thought this would make a great "move up second bike" ... I was pretty good in my MSF class...



    The best thing you can buy for your motorcycle is gas.

    This is high on my list of potential bikes for the 16YO. He's just not into the whole dual sport thing. But the TU is just jazzy enough and retro-cool to catch his attention.

    Unless California law has changed, you can bring one in and register it here as long as it has > 7K miles on the odometer. So they will show up on the used bike market in California (from dealer trade ins and private partys). Friends that used to own a Yamaha dealership would take bikes like this in as trade and slap dealer plate on and ride until it met the minimum mileage requirement. Some required some emission modifications too. Just can't buy brand new.

    Yeah far as I know that's still the law. I should switch my search to Cycle Trader.

    Oops, I hope Norty doesn't see this...

    Search tempest is a pretty cool tool for searching all of Craigslist within certain miles too. http://www.searchtempest.com/
