We don't need any pumpkins pictures in our T7 thread o.k.? thanks!!
I didn't realize this was a KTM thread... I really thought it was a T7 Tenere thread I had signed up for! My Bad!
I must be delusional!

You got this right. The #1 job of the salesman is to extract as much cash from you as they can. The salesman is not your friend or personal finance adviser even if he appears to be your long lost twin brother. Don't ever believe the salesman, no matter what period!!
I don't know about Japan but you'd just end up a bug in someone's grill riding that thing on the major roadways (most roads outside of town's and cities) here in Texas. You'd be ok I guess if you kept to city streets or the far off boonies.
IRC has been around for a long time, I've used them on my KLR back in the day and they are nice tires
Maybe Texans should understand that there are other road users that, although smaller, are not bugs.
Back on track...
Where are those handguards?
I certainly do, not implying the 250 won't work other places just get annoyed when blanket statements are made about what alternatives are good ideas.
It's the World Raid Edition.
It's not important that I find out but I'm curious to know what the plan is for Japan. Are they going to get the T7 and if so has there been any announcement about availability?
Its one of the worlraid bikes
One doesn't need a pickup to haul motos. An SUV with a hitch rack can often do it. For larger bikes, maybe use a small trailer behind a Yaris or larger. For motos like the XT250 or TW, maybe just throw it in the minivan or hatchback.
So is the T7 more suited to open terrain at higher speeds, or does it handle tight trails ok for being a 450lb twin?
The wheelbase sometimes seems a bit long from looking at different angles, but steering geometry could counter this a bit.
Your both right, though he wasn't the sales rep, and I spoke with him after I already made the purchase. He couldn't care less either way.
I don't have any monetary investments, I rather Finance and use what I have on trips and make memories, invest time travelling, learning, and exploring, than paying for it and just staring at it in the garage all summer. So for me, the risk of not taking an adventure bike on an adventure is greater than the 1.99% they want if that makes sense.
That World Raid one piece screen looks gorgeous, I hope Yamaha offer it later on for sale. I can see dust getting in, adjustability and all an issue, though its just so clean!
Huh? WR250R (1.5 Q) 3,000 mile intervals compared to the T7 (2.75 Q) 6,000 mile interval.
2.75 quarts (T7) I probably will change it every 5,000 miles . . . since it is geared on the low side (15X46)
I know the buzzy feel from the CB500X at higher revs - I had the Rally Raid kit on mine and kept my bar end weights but never could tame the handlebar buzz at higher revs.
Well it is good to know that some one has actually compared the motors to the same baseline that I have ridden since vibration can be very subjective especially when people are coming from different bikes. I believe there must have been something wrong with that FZ07 I rode since so many people have remarked how smooth that motor is but unfortunately a seed of doubt was planted and all it means is I will need to ride one again.
