Crap- I forgot how to 'edit' a post. (NOT like riding a bike!)
Just wanted to give a shout out to the el-supremo> Venture for creating this dedicated 700 forum. That.....is seeing the big picture and planning ahead. Cudos
Nice acknowledgement -

I know that Venture went to a LOT of personal effort and time to set up the T700 forum, basing it in what has worked here for the 1200.
Please do use it.

Well earned.
Looks like the Using part is about carved in stone......
Just got back from putting a deposit down on the #2 T7 to be sold by my local dealer. #1 was sitting on the showroom floor lookin mighty nice, awaiting its owner to arrive. It was the red/white livery. I can wait another couple of weeks to get Back in Black.
#1 had arrived with the Rally kit, and for whatever reason, the buyer didn't want it. I was asked about it and gave the go ahead to put it back for my unit. The plot is getting as thick as the suspense- so much that Gomez Adams would approve. o_O
THERE is that elusive 'edit' tab. (key 'aaaalelujah!... aaaaalelujah!')
After getting to borrow somebody else's bike for a sit down & get acquainted session, I believe this is the right choice. Going will tell all, of course. For a narrow looking seat, its more comfy then I figured, which= more ride time. If this thing pans out as good as I expect, mammy-yammy will have come very close to hitting a grand slam and price wise, a world beater.

That's a hell of an endorsement. I do believe he has an actual iron butt. I do find myself wondering why Yamaha used the the Gen 1 T-12 turn signals. As modern as the rest of the bike looks, why wouldn't they use the current, Gen 2, signals?
Yamaha needs to get rid of the existing inventory, because we don't crash and destroy our lights enough !!

It's definitely a T-7, but why the cammo? Current picture, or one from a couple years ago.

Hmmmm, bigger tank on a dirt bike. Seems counterproductive to put it up high, instead of down low like the KTM. . . . to me anyway. I would have thought the T12 would be a better candidate for a larger fuel tank. Kinda like Eric's. Considering that the T12 was designed for long distance. (not that I would want to stay in the saddle for that long)

The T7 side box hardware on the Yamaha web site shows to be $500; twice what the T12 hardware costs.

I would absolutely consider trading my super ten on a touring version of the t7...its the only bike on the market that could maybe draw me away from the biggest dirtbike in the world.
