I think my XT660Z Teneré was the bike I owned that came the closest to rekindling the spirit of my TT500. I liked that bike a lot, I am really sorry I sold it.
My XT660Z was also the bike I loved the most. The only one that truly felt part of me when I rode it. I wonder of the new T7 will be like that?

I have a client friend that has a 1200 GSA liquid cooled. He rode 17 years on his 1100 GS toe get to 70 000 kms.
On his 1200 he is on 50 000 within three years. He says he cannot stay off the thing and he works overseas and have limited time to ride.

I really do love all things motorcycle and as long as it’s two wheels then I am happy.

But for me there will always only be one.

This bike was my biggest dream and made most of my adventure dreams come true.

One of the few machines that speaks to my soul whether I just sit and look at it or whether I ride it.

I really like mine as well.  It was my dream bike back in 04'.  I began looking for one late 2018 and found practically a museum piece with less than 10k miles in Missouri and bought it immediately.  There's just something about the look and the way they run that is magical.
