I'd be worried if that's the case .
Mac, I hope they got your bike put together today.
It would be nice to see a pic of it you didn’t have to photo shop.
You must have gotten your money's worth out of that old triple by now. How about posting a picture of it? I sold mine back in 1979 and currently looking for one...
I paid $600 for it, well beaten. Not sure I have my money out of it yet. It's not very stock anymore.
Here is a bonus two stroke for you, my Buffalo.
gotdayum, i bet them two sound rad
I got word yesterday that my bike was at the dealership . Ordered in March, 06/20 build date, Canadian bike in B.C.
Actual bike . . . Picking it up at 10:00 A.M. tomorrow. . . Banker hours
Great, I looked close. If those pics are doctored up, you are getting better!
Picked mine up last night finally after what seemed like a miserably long wait. Hope to find some time to ride it a bit here soon. Waited forever and now I don’t have much free time but shit happens. We will see.
Finally picked mine up yesterday. I love it. I only rode it 25 miles home on pavement from the dealer, but it feels light and nimble, and the engine is so smooth.
I just got my bike also , I took it up the mountain to the ski hill and then through some trails , Thats the best use of horsepower-tranny combination I have ever rode. What was your build date ? That structure in the back , looks like its at the bottom of an earthen dam . Water flow control to ???
Did you get one of the accessory packages?
Hi Ag. No accessory packages for me.
I know Yamaha makes a good motor. Took the Fz out to stretch her legs this morning. With aftermarket cartridges and shock she will run with sport bikes.
Pop a wheelie too!
Congratulations to everyone finally getting your bikes.
I’m through waiting. If I get a call from local dealers that have my number in case someone doesn’t want their ppd order I will be on it like stink on shit.
Parents used to say,”We’ll see”. As a kid you soon realized that 9 times out of 10 it meant “no chance in hell”.
Most likely the T7 will join the Africa Twin, and 790 Adventure R, on the list of bikes I got sick of waiting for.
Definitely was a long long wait. Was losing interest . . . but, had already stocked up on accessories.
The T7 doe not feel like an adventure bike to me . . . more like a big dirt bike.
It is geared low for off road . . . 5,000 RPM was reading 65 mph (which is probably optimistic by 5-6%).
I will try a 16T front sprocket. I was trying to shift to 7th gear often.
At 195 lbs . . . I would not want a stiffer suspension . . . quite firm for me with zero dive.
My AT feels like a barcalounger by comparison. The seat is narrower and firmer than my AT too. I will need my sheepskin pad. Similar height to ground as the AT. The windscreen is small and narrow . . . wind in my face shield. . . did not notice buffeting (@5’ 11”).
Very smooth running and shifting bike . . . great finish. There were customers coming outside to look at my bike when loading it. One put down a deposit.
I am glad I waited . . . would do it again.
First mod . . . Rear rack and Skidder.
Which rear rack did you go with?
Givi rear rack and crash bars:
The T7 looks much smaller with the AT closer to the camera.
Congrats! Looks GREAT! Are you going to keep both?
