My MT-03

Discussion in 'Naked' started by Peony, Aug 8, 2015.

  1. After a bit of a wait I picked up my brand new MT-03 today - I really wanted the black one but there were none available so I was quite happy to take the white one and planned on getting the tank painted that awesome Yamaha blue. Well today I discovered the reasons for the delay - the bike had actually arrived in Sydney over a week ago but my hubby had conspired with the dealers to keep it's arrival from me in order to have it resprayed!!!! So here she is - the first one is my photo the others were taken at Trooper Lu's.

    I am currently doing a very happy dance :love::D(y)

    It will be a few days before I head off for a long ride though - been a while since i rode a geared bike so have to get back on track - did do a little this afternoon - just wants to go - quite a bit of torque

  5. PeonyPeony, she is gorgeous! Congratulations!! You obviously have perfect taste - you chose a great bike and very romantic husband ;)

  6. Uses the same engine as the XT660r - very torquey big single cylinder thumper. Pretty bulletproof engine and will certainly go if you twist it off the line. I like the look of the MT-03, funky, urban punk design. I actually like the white better though :)\

    Congrats on the new bike, I know you'll enjoy it!

  7. Congratulations PeonyPeony, your MT-03 looks great - they have a striking look. I had a good look at one at a local dealership recently. It was quite unique among the other bikes.

  8. What a beauty. I have not seen mt 03 in blue. Reow. Your husband ...hmmm... Does he know what's he done? I guess he is now ditched because you will want "me time" :)

  10. PeonyPeony congratulations on your gorgeous new ride. I can imagine that you both wanted to kill and kiss hubby at the same time! Have fun getting to know your bike and stay safe. :happy:

  11. Your hubby needs to be hung, dried and quartered for his deeds. How can we mere mortals compete against that........ Congrats on a fabulous bike. Enjoy and ride safe.

  12. The funniest part of it was when I went to pick it up yesterday they took me outside to show me all the controls etc that they do as part of the delivery and it was a white one with a sold tag and then Chris (the sales guy ) looked over towards the workshop entrance and there was a blue one - it seriously took a moment for it to sink in that the blue one was mine - didn't know whether to hug them or strangle them!!!! I did hug them in the end!!!

    Went out this morning for an hour to practice - is such a comfy bike, very responsive and so nice to ride. A few more sessions and I will be out on the open road!!!!

  13. what is even funnier (i have just found out) is that everyone else in the shop knew what was going on!!!! :ROFLMAO:
  14. Giggity - enjoy PeonyPeony
  15. yay yay yay lucky girl!!! Very envious. Have heaps of fun :)
  16. It's almost a 'scrambler'. I bet it would almost handle like a dual-sport, on good dirt roads.
    Envious, I am.
  17. Looks great. Your husband sounds like a too bloke too....too bad it makes us other husbands look worse!!
  18. Love that you took photos before it had left the dealers.

    Alright already I get the message. Vacuuming, ironing & washing dishes isn't enough.

  20. angry looking little thing! that seat looks comfy, is it standard? Oh and that looks like it has the easiest rear preload adjustment ever!
