I was trying to just add a small topic to an existing conversation but I could not really find the appropriate thread.
I have been watching more of the Tour de France than normal and my curiosity was piqued with the motorcycles used by the support teams and media.
I guess it is the Yamaha NIKEN which I was not really familiar with....it does seem quite appropriate for this type of riding...
Since I am not active on ADV and I know we have plenty of riders over here on Cake, I wondered what the contemporary consensus of this bike was/is?
100000% IMHO, but those CAN-AM Spyder's cause me great angst.....I hear people love them but it seems like a totally insult to actual "motorcycle" riding. Not sure why it causes me so much pain. So, this is somewhat the same configuration but since it looks more "technical" I would probably not be so macho critical but it does seem quite strange.
