    Oh Yamaha, how could you tease us with this concept and never incorporate a single one of it’s innovations in the subsequent years?

    Rough translation:
    "This is the motorcycle we will never build, despite it's Serow and Trailway heritage. Forget us making a small displacement adventure tourer with factory GPS, 110 generator w/ cooling fan, rear disc brake, or factory hand guards, etc,etc... No skid plate that turns into a shovel, removable lithium LED auxilliary lights, nor a actual load bearing rack systems or anything that entails new tooling."

    I would have at least thought Yamaha’s proud racing heritage's historical yellow color would make a comeback on the TW. The Speedblock on my YZ250G was as big a selling point for me as it’s explosive acceleration back in 1980. It doesn’t explode anywhere anymore, but neither do I. However I still find myself admiring it’s dusty parked form now and then. 1980YZ250800wide.jpg

    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
