    That would be appreciated, however, but i have my holiday plans adjusted for now, would have loved to ride to your country, now it will be more than likely Asia on a rental bike, or something like that.

    On a new bike yes, not to many people wanna ride a brand spanking new ride on the salted roads, and find out in spring its all corroded.
    So it would make sense in a way, we can always head to Morroco to do nice off roading.

    All that and down 20 less hp. Not to say that’s bad but it did seem like it was going to be something a lot less in size and weight. Hopefully by November we’ll have some hard numbers.

    Well... ok been actually a bit longer than the AT is a bit of a surprise, but anyway it was going to be in the same league if 2up is going to be a thing?
    Height... well that seems purely related to ground clearance and how tall the stock screen is going to be
    Width.. handlebars, says nothing about the rest. It looks quite a bit narrower than the AT everywhere else.

    When the specs were compared to the Africa Twin, I was both happy that the size was similar and even more torn on the Africa twin now or T7 later (who knows how long) The Africa Twin I am looking at is the adventure sports dct version. However the T7 is about 60 lbs lighter then the Honda, and has less gadgets which i also find appealing. This will be my first entry into the off road big bike world.

    It's a dry heat though... I've been in Toronto at 36C and 96% humidity. Talk about sweating your bag off.

    Actually the whole summer when it's 25c + will often be 85+ humidity.

    Wonder if the dash can be easily changed for that on the mt07. It looks so much better and should be more practical, leaving space for nav equipment and or putting a smaller screen.

    I guess it won't be plug and play, MT07 doesn't have switchable ABS and T7 does with a button in the dash.

    Local dealer told me they get delivery dates on july 16th. If it works as it used to, that means bikes should be here one week to ten days later.

    Oh, asia on a CRF (250??) sounds great. On rainy season, if someone tells you a road is not passable, it means you won't pass.... literal. Keep that in mind

    You're right, humidity makes hot weather a lot worse.

    But fixing a flat tyre at 45ºC is bad enough for me :lol3

    It is actually pretty great, rental price, food, all the smiles everywhere.
    Cannot afford not to go.
