    The "Limited Edition" tank badge and the gold swoops on the sidecovers are most likely dealer installed. Probably to denote or celebrate the dealer's building of a full touring XS11; fairing, bags, Ez Berg type seat, Harley style full fender and probably a bunch more stuff. I did somewhat of the same thing when I was a dealer selling the Elevens. Not everyone liked the Yamaha plastic so we built what we thought were 'better machines', to coin a phrase.

      Good eye Ray! (and Bob)

      If Karla comes to the VYR, we can ask her.

        ...Clutch cover too...

        I just realized it IS the same bike. I remembered seeing something similar on Craig's list, but I never looked at the location for original post jpiombo67.

          Here is a close up of the logo. I asked Karla and she said that Bob, may have had a hand in this, but not sure

                Trailer Hitch. I think that’s the talking point of this bike.
                The gentleman that had her really loaded her up with extras.
