Baie dankie Subie, die man ry daai modder vinniger as meeste ouens n droee baan.

n 790 se coil sou natgeraak het. :pot:
Sit nog op startline en besluit watter riding mode om op TFT in te sleutel  :biggrin:

en besig om "clingwrap" om die TFT te draai.......

@Noneking
Ja nee, die 790 is ń crap bike. Kan nie wag vir 2024 om my T7 te koop nie. Ons moet mos nou afgradeer weens die ekonomiese omstandighede veroorsaak deur die Covid 19 lockdown.

Het jy nie alreeds afgradeer nie?
Nee Danie, jy weet mos ek besit geen Yamahas nie

Glad met die bek.......regte KTM ryer. :imaposer:

Soos dit nou gaan met die rand dollar gaan jy dalk n halfmiljoen moet hoes vir die Yammy maar dit sal steeds die moeite werd wees  :3some:

It'll be obsolete before we see them here!  :peepwall: :eek7:

That guys whole channel is full that kind of riding. I can't imagine he has OEM suspension! The guy REALLY trusts his front wheel.
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

I see in the first quarter YTD 2020 the T7 is the runaway best seller in Oz at 347 units next bike being around 200 sales. I was surprised to find Suzuki is still shifting 120 Dr650's a quarter and that the ktm450EXC is a LEARNER APPROVED MOTORCYCLE! They sell a lot of Harley Davidsons here. I'm not sure if it is because they will offer credit to anyone with something looking like a job or whether a lot of Australians are wankers.

100 km/h speedlimit en well enforced speed checks makes fast road bikes useless. That is why HD is popular.

Having been bikeless for close on a year, these videos tighten my nuts
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Soos dit nou gaan met die rand dollar gaan jy dalk n halfmiljoen moet hoes vir die Yammy maar dit sal steeds die moeite werd wees  :3some:


The currency situation doesn't exactly boost the chances of the T7 reaching these shores very soon.

I'm a bit of a beneficiary of the exchange rate right now, but for bike sales and also for spares and anything biking related it looks a bit dismal.  :-\

Sadly have to agree, the secondhand market should however be a bargain hunters dream

Just know a XT660Z will NEVER be able to do that type of hooligan riding even with mods so the T7 must be a nice evolution

I have to agree, since I was used to a KLR and always thought the XTZ to be in a completely different class. However, sadly not the case and now that my son owns one which I got to ride I must say the Z was a bit overrated.
The T7 I'll buy blindly just because of that gem of a motor, that's one of the best midrange motorcycle engines ever!

Daai videos wys nou maar net: Dit is 90% die pilot en 10% bike. :ricky:
Hopelik  maak die T7 so paar ander vervaardigers se ogies oop: Ons soek ligter, eenvoudiger, bekostigbare, capable bikes wat jou bosse toe roep, nie `n playstation nie.
