Ew. I'm okay with the Thruxton R, though.

i like the thruxton so i was worried for a minute. growing a beard and wearing skin tight pants would not be good for me, or anyone else who sees me.

thanks for confirming i am ok. unless you are a hipster then maybe i will worry again, lol

I don't like the Thruxton, just the r-version of it.

Coincidentally,

The salesman mentioned this new Yamaha 950 which is based on the Bolt (ugh) when I went for a test ride today on their also new XSR900, which is much more to my liking. The XSR900 has chain rather than belt drive which is a must for ready final drive ratio changes. It has ABS, traction control and a slipper clutch. Very nice and quick. Suspension (rebound adjustment only front and rear + preload in the rear) and particularly the very numb front and rear brakes (which stop OK if not to the level of my modified VTR) need work but not terribly or expensively so. The bars have to go (with lower and more forward bend), as they felt so high my elbows hurt. Leg room for a 6-footer and the saddle are pretty darn good. The limited bodywork can easily and inexpensively be repainted, and they already have some very nice looking accessories like case savers and what not available.

In no way am I considering selling my low mileage VTR but it and my 1976/77 RD400 need a stablemate. The VTR is in the background of one photo, and it did not at all feel threatened by the power of the XSR. BTW, why does my 40 year old Yamaha have self-canceling turn signals and their 2016 does not?

"....no way am I considering selling my low mileage VTR."

If adding to the stable, I think I would go with a Yamaha also.
