Say what you want about the bike....

But where did they get that AWFUL suit for the rider? He looks like an anorexic Stay-Puft marshmallow man.


I'm a man, and I can change, if I have to, I guess.

I'm getting to be an old phart. The only question I have is "WHY?"

Something looks off to me. Front wheels and wheel holders don't seem symmetrical, even allowing for an angled view. Photoshop job?

Been contemplating the necessity of this and however dubious the concept seems you kinda have to flashback to how the first GS was received.....

Hey Hey, FJR get out of the way.

I was just wondering what would happen if you could lock the cross connecting piece in the horizontal position so that it wouldn't pivot, would it then steer like a typical 3 wheeler? Probably not a good idea because the front wheels aren't far enough apart. Hey maybe out-riggers like on a snow machine.

OK...not the first time I've been wrong. Looks like the answer to a question nobody is asking. Yamaha does not have a great history with unusual front end designs...see Yamaha GTS for example. Maybe this is a test mule for a new MotoGP design and the answer to loosing the front end wink
