    Update on my old fart 55th b-day shoulder injury gift :D So the PT is helping but just not getting substantial improvement 8 weeks post injury, so went back to the ortho doc who's concerned it might also be a rotator cuff tear, off for another 3T MRI happily results say no cuff tear just basically everything that could be inflamed is and the AC tear is a Grade 3 not 2 and it's all really aggravating the arthritis in the joint, today got two steroid shots in the shoulder hoping that calms it all down and the PT can finally get me over the hump and back to a 54 yr old's shoulder :lol3

    Friday I was workjing, SAT I was selling a vehicle. I rang the dealer on the way home, WELL before COB, and they called the demo day due to... RAIN. I was ready to get my gear and show up.

    The long and short of it is FMS will not set up any of the 3 T7s they are expecting next month for demo rides. I really want to ride one before I commit.

    Next stop for the demo truck? Might only be a day trip away. Dealer should be willing to tell you where the demos are headed next - but this is FMS...

    Yeah, I was gonna’ google the demo days thing and see what I can see. Brand new/broken in T7 for sale in Illinois. Trying not to road trip.

    it has all the farkles I would want, some installed, some extra... and is MSRP.

    Wait a sec. FMS has 3 T7s coming next month and they are not spoken for???!!!

    I had saved money for a new bike this year, almost bought the 790, but backed out due to covid and just not riding as much. The T7 was definitely on the list... then a few weeks ago I find out I need a new roof on the house. So no new bike for me. I just wanted something for motocamping that I am comfortable enough to do interstate and bad forest roads.

    They are not unobtainium. That's an insulting markup. I know the sales manager... he and I spoke on the phone SAT and he said he'd get pricing on the 3 they have coming in. I'd drive WAY far to pay MSRP + a wee bit, vs that stupid asking price.

    I'll report back what price I get, if/when I get it.

    FYI -FMS does NOT/NOT have a T7 in stock. The one there was owned by a control rider, and he was interested in auctioning it off. I'll update the price from FMS when I get it.

    Just watched the Fortnine review of the T7 sounds pretty interesting.

    Yup. 99% sure I’m gonna’ grab a T7... Gonna’ chat with the dealer POC I have tomorrow.

    Based on what I’m reading and watching, the T7 seems to be a universally well received moto.
