Yamaha Tenere 700 Forum

Another other bikes thread.


Recommended Posts

Since it looks like it'll be a while before I get my hands on a Tenere700.

 

One of my favorite bikes of all time.

First go at a photogrammetric 3D scan of it:

And the town pump everybody-gets-a-turn loaner:

And some recently acquired Yamaha action. Swapped my 944 for it so I'd have a better trade in for the T7, but the wife likes it so it looks like it will end up as a more permanent than intended resident.

I sold two bikes last month.  One was a KLX140G.  It was a ton of fun.  I regret selling it.

The KX can go and I wont be upset in the least, I think my buddy down the street might take it. The TW is a permanent member of the collection though. After owning a dozen or so bikes over the years, that one stands out. It's not the best at anything, but it's damn good at a lot of things, and it has a definite personality to it. From day one it was like hanging out with an old friend.

2009 here. I think they kept the white with blue/black stripes for a while. Digging the high fender mod, been pondering it for mine too. Have you noticed any additional water/mud making it up your legs since doing it?

Colors:  What do I know...  ~ shrug ~ 

The high mount was one of the first things I did on it before I ventured off into the N. AZ goo, but the low mount wouldn't have worked for long as the mud would have built up into it and prevented rotation. 

I would normally were OTB pants for the same reason.  I just spray myself off. 

The mud on the WRR pic is light...  Could be 3-4 thick during nominal monsoon rides.
