    The original Yamaha rack is 7 kgs.
    Got about 3500 miles on the bike so far, no problems other than blowing the Aux fuse.
    And the stock rear shock needs work or replacement.

    Quick owner update 2500 miles in:

    - No problems
    - Bike runs fine
    - Agile, really good fun to ride
    - Sits at 90mph on the motorway no problem
    - Generally about 65mpg (UK)
    - Off road so far has been excellent fun, but tyres not well suited to muddy stuff.

    Have you got any thoughts on what tyres you may use next if you're still going to ride the lanes through winter?

    It's the UK. They measure distance in miles, speed in miles/hour, but fuel dispensing in liters (or worse, litres, which comes from French... :fpalm) and then talk about fuel consumption in MPG (Imperial, though)... :loco

    To make a long story short, the way we measure it, Tobers is getting ~54 MPG... :lol3

    And riders are reporting better economy. It's all in the slight of hand.

    My average actual consumption is 3.63l/100km. It is actual one, not the dash info.
    The fuel trip just came on at 348km.
    Just my 2 cts.

    Mine has 4,3l/100km since new, sitting now at 6100km with all sorts of riding, spirited, off road and city.
    If you mostly do roads and trails you are under 4.0l/100km.

    23,2 km/L.
    It's the only quick way to measure it, for me!
    If I put in 10 liters I know right away it's a 232km range.

    Different people have different preferences. I roll 1000+ mile days of interstate on thumpers with about half the power of a T700, and I'm not the only one.

    Many of us have been waiting for a moto that has the legs for big miles combined with the offroad agility usually only enjoyed on thumpers. The T700 seems like it could fit the bill, in comparison to all the 500lb+ road-biased adv motos that mfrs keep bringing to market. With a few mods, the T700 could be in the same weight class as a TR650 or similar.
