Long Road Home

I just bought a 18 TC in gray. For me, this has been culmination of years of trying to find the perfect tourer. I haven't taken any long rides yet but this machine appears to be the one.

There’s only one model produced by Yamha that’s listed as a “Tourer”. Eluder is a “Bagger” not “Tourer”. Seemed his statement was concise since he did say “TC” which everyone knows is the “Transcontinental” or SVTC.

Welcome from a fellow SVTC owner here in North Carolina. Our community of SVTC owners here is growing! Please send pics. ALSO, we have a tradition here of “naming” our rides. Some of the other SVTC’s are Charlotte (Joe), Big Red (Mine), A new guy named his “Cherry”... etc.
