Yamaha XT 1200 EZ World Crosser 2015
This is my new toy and touring bike. This is the big brother of the XT 660r, that has been my travel buddy for the last few years. As always, I did my orange version of the bike and I really like it. This bike has everything, - all the electrical stuff, cruise control, electronic adjustable suspension, traction control, lot of power and more and more. Until now, I have only used it in Iceland, but the highland of Iceland is a very good test ground for the bike and so far, everything is as expected.

This is my world touring bike. The bike as a very simple design and is a reliable bike and when travelling long distances you want to have bike like that. I have made some modification to the bike so it is better for world touring. You can on the pictures below some of the changes I did. I can name few, - custom seat, bigger fuel tank, 26 liters, 2into1 exhaust system, center stand, Fat bar handlebar, more robust engine guard, and of course luggage system, gps, tankbag and more and more. So far the bike has worked exceptionally well and not a single failure so far. It need just the normal maintenance to keep in good shape. The fuel range is approx. 600 km. and that makes life much easier when riding out there in the middle of nowhere !

This is my toy when having fun in Iceland. I just love this bike and I have had one since 2006. I have made some modification to the bike to suit me better. Some are just cosmetic and for fun, and others to suit my riding style. Some riders ask me why I do not use this one for my word tours, - and my answer is this: I do not need the power, I do not need the extra weight and extra fuel consumption, it is much more difficult to identify and find problem if something brakes down and thereof much more work and more complicated to repair and fix. Any many cases you will need special tools etc.
