    It’s been suggested that after the T700 speculation thread which has been running for over 2 years with 11,000 plus posts and 565 pages that a new owners thread is started, so here it is. The first batch of production bikes are finally due to be delivered in the UK and I get mine in a weeks time.

    I’m excited, very excited.

    Waiting delivery of my Tenere 700 "Competition White".
    Hope this "owners thread" will be more serious than all the BS and NON relevant posting in the first Tenere 700 thread.

    I agree. I am so sick and tired of reading about 790 KTM and AT in the 700 Tenere thread.
    I am not interested in the other brands.
    This is the bike I want to own.

    Think the Tenere T 700 pre order thread would have been more appropriate :dhorse.

    I don’t want to hijack this thread any more than I already have. Build thread covers suspension.

    The T700 is going to be a winner. Wish it was available when I needed a bike. Will watch this thread closely to see how folks mod their bikes.

    Interesting that no owners are posting to this thread. Just maybe this bike is too much fun so they’re all out riding it instead of sitting around nit picking it like the people on the speculation thread.

    For anyone visiting from the speculation thread, this is what is known as a joke.

    For any actual T7 owners who read this, get off your computer/phone and go ride. You can post pictures and reviews this winter when all of us will desperately need a distraction. We will all wait impatiently for you.

    Back to your regularly scheduled program.
