HooRay for Hollywood, it's crap and pap...so $hit on Hollywood

Same place they get thier ideas for movie content, from the minds of nitwits...who have their head up the A$$es of fools.. who pander to cretins.

Never dreamed you'd need so many special effects to make liter bikes seem exciting!

Foo-Foo! I haven't read "Foo-Foo" since Dirt Bike magazine in the 1970's. I paint my Foo-Foo bike with a Foo-Foo can.



Thanks for the memory.

Were they afraid to compare it to a KLR 650?

The KLR is lighter and a whole lot less expensive. And you can buy one anywhere.

I think the only replacement for a 9 year old KLR is a new KLR. It's already a better bike for dual purpose riders than the XT660 or BMW's F650GS series. At $5100 dollars MSRP you can upgrade the suspension, make engine mods, add luggage, and go out for dinner and still be in a competitive price range of the Beemer and XT.

That is too bad that this bike is mediocre. I was really hoping for a US Yamaha Supermotard.



Why hasn't Yamaha brought the MT-03 concept to production. Based on the interest of the MT-01 production bike, the MT-03 should be a hot item as well.

I'm sick of getting headaches from the action scenes that make up for poor action choreography with frantic cutting and editing. They must change the view in the scenes at least twice a second now. "Gone in 60 Seconds", "Armageddon", etc. etc. etc.

Don't forget to fix the KLR's brakes (before they fix you!) -Sean

Just read the 1999 MO review of the KLR. Forget the dinner; go get brakes for that thing.

yeah no kidding! Get some damn GEAR!! And learn how to stand up Yossef. That rear end will do a lot better if your legs are nearly straight.

What this Xt660 article Failed to mention is. Yamaha France has made this unit available to residents of The south seas for years. And that motor was not originally designed for this Bike but, was first in a Yamaha Quad. How about bringing in the MT-01 Yamaha. If you don't know what the MT-01 is look it up on the internet that is a bike I would buy. That is also a bike that you could find in the south seas.In fact I rode one in Pepete Tahiti. It's a Road Star Naked drag bike. SOOOOOOO Cool.....
