    I’m impressed. Must be gear pretty low in first the way he went around the tree in the trail. Nice vids I’ll be watching and waiting here in the states.

    It is low geared indeed. I almost always start in 2nd; I'm 73kg without gear tho.

    This might be helpful. The Kriega tool pouch is a perfect fit for the tool/document cavity in the Rally seat. You might also be interested to know that some T700 parts are now available in Australia, including the Rally seat.

    And this is the sw-motech bashplate. it looks very nice and more robust but does not cover the linkage area the way the Yamaha one does.

    Does the rear shock mount the same as the mt/fz 07?

    No, the top mount is on the frame, not the rear of the motor

    As of now I‘ve only seen large racks (from vendors who want sell panniers). Are‘nt there any small and light rear only racks?

    SW-Motech can be mounted without pannier racks.
    Hepco&Becker also can, and seems to be even lighter

    It is on the US Yam webpage. Dealers should, should, know about it.

    It was a stop in to pick up parts for the indie shop I work in. The owner of the shop I work in has an inside guy at another close by shop that may, may, be able to cut me a deal on a T7. And he said when the T7 may be usstateside.......
