Ek het nou al 3 van my bikes se frames gebreek.
Die enigste 3 wat ek actually mee getoer het. 2x GS en 1190.
Hulle het nooit so hard deur geslaan soos daai T7 in vid nie. Maar gelukkig is Yamaha betroubaar en immuun tot sulke goed

In the vid credits you can see hi lay the bike down a few times. Will those crashbar scratches be edited out? would have been cool to rather keep it, show a more realistic slightly battered bike.

But the, the endurak666 clips also you cant really see the marks that much, and he has no respect

Word from ADVrider is that this was done with "Stock suspension and springs. All he did was add Mitas tires and a touch more oil to the forks"

The decals on the forks indicate that they have been worked on.
More info

Javi Echevarría, co-producer of the film, told us that the only thing they did was change the stock tires to Mitas knobbies, while the Tenere’s suspension was prepared by Erik Augé, with more oil in the fork for a stiffer, more stunt-proof ride. During some of the harshest landings you still hear both the front and especially the rear suspension clunk hard on the stops, yet Javi told us that after their week-long shoot the Yamaha “was totally in perfect condition after seven days of crazy riding to the limit.”

He also said that Pol only crashed three or four times during the entire shoot, which explains why there aren’t more bloopers during the prolonged credits

My XT600E has bottomed out more times than Zuma can count in it's 100 000kms of duty.

Why would a Yamaha break from bottoming out??

It's only KTM riders who seem to expect a break as soon as something bottoms out. :imaposer:

Thats got to be great selling point for the T7 then....
