Is there any feedback from Hogsback Rallye ? I don't see any ride reports or mention of it

Adrian Bac was there on one. I sat on it but did not ride- a few guys just took a short spin. Apparently its good and capaple. Visually i does nothing for me, but i must admit i only have eyes for KTM. Maybe someone else?.

I could do a ride report - but I will be accused of being biased! Been on here waiting for impressions from those that took the bike for a demo.................

Arent we all?

Just do it :)

Waiting patiently for feedback on the T7 after the Ralley Raid, or maybe everyone are  at the Yamaha dealerships placing orders

2 years of online feedback wasnt enough  ::) :peepwall:

Not bad pricing from Honda I guess, I like the standard plain AT best anyway. Wonder if they did the price adjustment to counter possible T7 sales ? Funny that BMW and Triumph also lowered pricing at the same time or maybe they just want to move old stock.

I suspect the price drop has got more to do with the new CRF1100 that's available.
Oh see that is for the old model ? No thanks

Werent they released at the same time as the T7?

in this thread, 'old model' has a different definition...
Seems if we wait long enough Honda will be giving away CRF1000L's and 250 Rally's for free  :ricky:
I can understand why a T7 would cost premium though, I mean just that name "Tenere", personification of adventure. Others are just Starbucks wannabees

Sidetrack is my brother............ :thumleft:

Of course I agree, the name "Tenere" is just magic, as it stands for motorcycling fantasy.

While KTM is a solid brand today, Yamahahas just been there forever with top quality offerings.

Na al hierdie "fantastiese" nuwe adventure bikes wat release word bly die 690/701 onaantasbaar die beste en mees veelsydigste adv bike op die planeet. No contest!

Die T7 is n absolute whale at 200+ kg..

What is Starbucks?

It is a place where yuppies & coogirls visit, enjoy a fancy sugarless coffee (because sugar makes you fat) and enjoy a few DeathByChocolate cookies (because they're healthy apparently, and allegedly contain very different sugars & Omega3-rich fats).
So, if a FS-boer visits there and orders 'Latte' he'll be served some costly milky lukewarm drink instead of round wooden swartwattel stems to cover his stoep wif, and this may be the reason why Starbucks is not quite welcome in Welkom yet  :P

Ek stem heelhartig met jou saam, ek is self n man wat n ligte bike heeldag sal ry teen 110kmh, net om 500km van die huis af n berg te gaan klim. :thumleft:

Maar die T7 is in die klas van die 790/GS850, ens, ens, en word dus as sulks geoordeel.

Net om seker te maak niemand mis dit nie...


2SD het sopas die T7 in dieselfde klas as die GS850 gesit.

Die beste eienskap van die T7 is die motor, tried en tested, baie gewild.
Miskien is die 200kg gewig nie die eide van die wereld nie, die T7 dra sy gewig baie goed, net soos die AT.
Ek dink baie ouens sal maklik gel met die T7, minder imtimiderend as die 790, of die AT wat fisies maar baie groot vertoon.
Ons hoop maar net die T7 is goedgesind met die prys. Die gemiddelde man daar buite kry nou maar baie swaar, myns insiens ook die rede hoekom
 daar spesiale aanbiedinge op bikes is sodat die mark darem aanhou beweeg.
