    Is dropping it, when riding counted. :D
    10 years ago I could lift the harley back up, nowadays it can get run over..

    Way back when I had my Dr Big, my girlfriend at the time could get more of her feet on the ground than I could.
    3 legs to help hold a heavy dirt bike up is awesome. :thumb

    This just doesn't make any sense. Yamaha built the T7. There is your lighter, better faster. They responded and responded well.

    Don't mind what the haters say I love my big blue pig. Not perfect at anything but bloody great at most things. 20201114_112851.jpg

    That describes the best bikes. The one's that are competent at the type of riding you are, realistically, going to do and make you smile while doing it.

    Maybe Gods can offer his services to the manufacturers and get them on track?

    Now young Simosez , no doubt you are just trying to stir Gods up :lol3 but I think that T7 v HP2 comment needs some clarification...:deal

    T7 HP2
    Dry weight. 187kgs 175kgs
    Front susp. 210 mm 270 mm
    Rear susp. 200 mm. 255 mm
    Hp. 72.4. 105
    Nm. 67.8. 115

    I haven’t ridden a T7 yet , a mate should be picking one up shortly, but think it is incredibly well priced and capable adv bike ... but no HP2 :beer

    ... except that you can't ride a specification sheet... it's how the bike performs in real world application that counts. :1drink

    :nod Yes.

    I have... several times.... Oh, and for those that missed it the first second and third time - Simo forgot to mention... :deal
    "on any given day...""... the T7? It'll kick a HP2's arse all day every day." :norton"

    Yes...

    ... it's better. :1drink :beer

    Is why I like my DR650, despite having spent years trying to avoid buying one, because as I told my Suz-loving mate Bert: "They're old, slow, antiquated, uncomfortable, low-tech, mass-produced..." Turns out that's exactly the bike I needed to have in the Andes, the Karoo, the Atacama... he was right, I was wrong. All it took was 87 line-items on a spreadsheet to make it the bike I wanted too.

    Does pannier racks and heated grips count as mods?
