One trains to avoid black ice the same way dogs train to avoid cars. It's a hit or miss proposition.
This is supposed to be a picture thread
wow, 60 degrees F on Nov.20 Needed to get a good coating of salt on the spokes. The roads were white with the shit. Let the rust begin.
Hahaha must be a west of the Rockies thing, here in SoCal we wear flip flops
40 years ago I’d be up on this hill looking for backstraps
40 years ago last week I bought my first BRAND NEW Yamaha, XS1100.
Backstraps are still roaming around, be careful not to harvest one with a T7
Killed one on the SV on my way to work. Didn’t seem to bad on impact. Hit her right behind the ear. Before going home that night I checked out the front rim. Deer hair pinched between the tire bead and the rim. Closer than I thought.
Got to play on some rutted steep hilled rocky dirt roads. So my thoughts coming from a F800gs I gotta say I love the way this bike feels like a big dirt bike offroad and like a sport touring bike on the twisties. I rode these same dirt roads with the F800gs and could feel the weight of it especially off camber stuff. The T7 was confidence inspiring where you don’t feel it’s riding you and the power is always there and controllable. What a easy and manageable bike that lets you enjoy having a bigger bike on the trails.
I’m still in the breakin period with only 250 miles and you can feel the engine getting looser, can’t wait to start getting this thing into the upper RPM range. Normally I just ride them like they are going to be ridden and not worry too much about the breakin process after the first 100 miles.
So we shall see if I can hold off.
Don't rush the break-in, if mine is typical. I think I have over 2k miles now and only recently has the rpm felt like it wanted to rush into the upper range.
I opted for the drive the piss out of it right out the box method, then straight to full synthetic.

I had to look it up:
I rode it through Boston today on the way to Cape Cod for a business meeting. Doing 65 mph = Kenworth enema. 350 miles on, instead she got the “accelerated learning program”
got the “accelerated learning program”
Lol, Ride it like it was stollen
OK, I’ment liked ripped,off not some tasty pastry not avalible in the Us .
Not that it doesn’t look good.
Out and about in NJ
Did you ever ride a Suzuki SV 650? Those were pretty sweet also, a dialed in fuel controller and a pipe- very rev happy and nice grunty torque curve!
With shit suspension and mediocre brakes.
Once that's sorted out, I've heard they're amazing.
I've always wanted to ride an RC51 and a TL1000s though.
I really can't believe you washed it, it's such a wast of time!
