    You will love this bike. It is an awesome machine. I came off a 2013 KLR as well and there is no comparison.
    This bike RIPS!

    I think the only local Yamaha dealer in Tucson is RideNow. I highly doubt they are getting anything in June if they wouldn't work with the PDP.
    I would have gone down to Sierra Vista and ordered from the dealershop down there, when I went in and spoke with them late last year they seemed quite knowledgeable about the whole process.

    Yeah, early June delivery with a May 22nd order and limited color selections implies to me the first batch is already on shore. Here's to hoping at least.
    I'm most excited about a 6-speed transmission and, oh I don't know, an engine designed in this century.

    Your dealer is a fucking idiot.

    If you'll get first dibs on dealer stock, that's fine, if you don't mind waiting until fall.

    That's what I'm thinking, but OK with waiting till Fall. A little on the toasty side here in Tucson for the next few months anyways...

    FWIW, my dealer said that the bikes are in the United States, and that 80 or 90 bikes were California bikes, I forget which. Somehow, I ended up with two numbers from Yamaha and it took more than an hour for any numbers to show up. I keep getting the email that said that the preorder site was active. Finally my dealer called me after the Yamaha site crash and told me that Yamaha said there are sold out. Originally, he said he did not think he would get anymore than 6 bikes at the most and I would need to wait to fall. But he went back to Yamaha and was able to get me a bike for me and said that it would be here in the first half of June. I got the ninth bike preordered through this dealer.

    That sounds pretty cool. During my process the rep asked my dealer if I really wanted to buy two bikes. Now I only have one coming. Would be nice if it got here before the end of June.

    Wow. So it sounds it me the bikes are here, and will be shipped to the dealer for accessory installation. I wonder if that means for those of us with the confirmation number, we'll all be seeing our new bikes within a few weeks.

    Currently a '15 Versys 1000LT is my main ride. At the moment, probably going to keep it, but might trade it in on the T7. I love my V1K, though.

    No, you cannot have or buy it. I'm keeping it.

    Is anyone aware of a mounting kit for a Scotts steering damper for the T7? I can't find anything. I see Rallye-Moto has one for their damper but I already have a Scotts on the shelf.

    Heres a link to the post on the forum. Its looking like it is in addition to the standard tank, but he could just mean he has determined total volume gain with a whole new tank. “I am still working on the exact details and final specs but expect an additional 10.2L of fuel can be carried with no changes to the external dimensions of the bike.”

    I tend to agree with your thinking.
