Great pegs. Did you grab that set on FB?
My Evo3 pegs are on their second bike. Solid pegs.
I’m a huge fan of pivot pegs. Ridiculously expensive though. It appears the Tenere 700 ones don’t pivot as much as I remember on my other bike. Maybe I’m wrong as I sold it couple years ago.
Tenere 700 TRAVEL? Larger tank, lower seat height, more wonderful saddle?
I put the 20 mm lowering links on, took out the rubber grommets under the seat and it is plenty low enough for my 60+ old - 160 lb - 29 " inseam . The seat is ok too . IMO Definitely needs bigger tank !!!
Yeah, I did.
Me at 79+ old, 31” inseam, the stock seat, and the stock suspension height are not a problem, but I definitely enjoy a pee break at 240mi on my gas fill ups. I have fuel bladders when needed
500 mile day today.
And the day before.
These shots were taken on CA130 between I5 and 880.
The Lick observatory on Mt. Hamilton was barely saved in the wildfire.
@Adanac rider No, I'm reading there is a TRAVEL version of the T7...That makes (3) versions: Standard, Rally and TRAVEL.
Here are some first class T7 products.
Ordered the Tenere 700 Windscreen Adjuster today . . . for the wider Givi D2145S screen on order.
Not sure when I will get the wider/taller screen (B.O. via TT).
I ordred a windscreen adjuster Too , It has shipped already
I hope the tank is bigger than 20 litres , 24+ would be nice .
There is a bunch of wasted space in and around the OEM tank and with the light front end you should easily be able to add another gallon in the stock location and not disrupt the bikes great handling. It’s only 6lbs
I just hope it’ll be available as parts from Yamaha. Not really interested in a rear mounted tank. I can feel the difference in handling between a half tank and full tank with certain tires.
In the low setting on my evo pegs, I was grinding them pretty hard, coming down from Lick observatory today.
I'm gonna have to put them in the high setting.
That was almost a Non Sequitur but I think I understand you’re thinking.
I’ve not come close to scraping pegs or boots yet and I‘ve run to the edges of my knobs.
The stock STRs suck on dirt but are pretty grippy on rough, shitty pavement. The first time I ground my right peg today, I jumped pretty bad in the middle of the corner and almost upset my line.
Pretty good corners up there.
I'm just trying to wear them out so I can seal up my rims and run Anakee wilds.
We have similar curves 3 hours north (Deals Gap) . . . quit riding there . . . too many unskilled riders . . . and idiot riders not staying in their lane . . .
Still a popular place to ride T7’s:
^ there's a whole thread of Dragon fail pics on ADV... always good for a laugh
(hopefully not generating bad karma by laughing)
Looks like the Yamaha press launch had a lunch break
I feel the pain that the Harley gal is gonna have to deal with
Number8teen and I flew out to Knoxville and rented bikes from PJ a couple years ago. Did 10 days of riding. Tons, and tons of riding. At the very, very end, it made the most logistical sense to ride 129, south to north to finish out our ride.
What a shitshow.
We rode waaay better roads out there that didn't have a circus on them.
We stayed there 1 night. We were the only people in the place. It was mostly shut down and the bar/restaurant downstairs was shut too.
There were about 100 roads we liked better than 129.
We rode between 2700 to 3000 miles on that trip. FZ09 and an FZ1. The Carolinas, N half of Georgia, Tennessee, almost into Alabama, and almost into Kentucky.
