For sale: 2009 Yamaha XT660Z Tenere, Manchester UK

I've turned to the dark side and am going travelling on 2 wheels but self-propelled! That's why my Tenere has to go... Full details on eBay

2009 YAMAHA XT 660 Z TENERE BLACK on eBay (end time 20-Jul-11 18:31:28 BST)

I've had this UK (non-import!) bike for 2 years and it has been faultless and 100% reliable. It has full Yamaha service history with the most recent service under 50 miles ago (cost £150). I've only ever ridden on-road, and it's never been used for commuting, only for longer summer-only trips to Morocco, Spain, Holland, Germany and Wales. A week 2-up in Wales with all camping gear was no problems. I'm only selling it as I'm emigrating otherwise I'd keep it forever!
I've fitted a fair amount of useful extras at a cost of around £1500 so the winning bidder is going to get a lot more than just the bike! These are:

-Metasystem Thatcham Cat 1 alarm (dealer fitted)
-heated grips
-Touratech handguards and wind deflectors
-touring Scottoiler
-Touratech tank bag
-centre stand
-Touratech large bashplate and upper engine bars
-Touratech pannier racks
-Touratech rear luggage rack
-homemade metal pannier boxes

Full details of the Touratech extras at http://www.touratech.com/shops/008/i...f54424d59524d3

There is a slight scuff on the right hand side plastic guard, and the ends of the handguards are scratched (squeezing through my garden gate!), otherwise this is in very good condition.

Viewing are welcome (I live in South Manchester), but there will be no test rides I'm afraid. Tire kickers waste someone else's time please!
I have listed this in MCN as well, so I may end the auction early if I get a decent offer from elsewhere.
Remember you are bidding to buy, not to view and I'll require a £100 deposit via PayPal within 24 hours of the auction ending to prove that you're serious!
Any questions please ask!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
