Hi All, Just a quickie to say hi - this is my first post on your great forum. I've been riding since age 10 (49 now) and have a Honda CBF1000 - an under-rated wonderful bike. For all its talents i'm looking for something more, having lived only on a diet of off-road thumpers over the years. I'm seriously looking at the Yamy MT-01 and actually rode one 18 mths ago prior to getting the CBF. It is, in a word, supernatural. A misunderstood and sureal mix of sportsbike suspension, frame tech and brakes with a THUMPING 1670cc V-twin Warrior motor. Who thought that up!!?? Anyway, I'm due for another ride soon to decide. I came across this review by a forum member, written in 2008: https://netrider.net.au/forums/showthread.php?t=90332 A better review on any bike I have never read! Anywhere. If the author (nice2Bnaked) is still around t'would be good to hear how his love affair has progressed. Also, if there's any other MT-01 owners here I'd love to hear about your experiences - good and/or bad with the bike. Cheers for now and thanks for putting a great forum together! - HillsRider.
