Yamaha Tenere 700 Forum

Now an owner, not a lurker


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'd been perusing this forum for weeks, mainly deciding on what options I wanted from the start. (I already knew it was the bike from me, having watched way too many YouTube videos....).


I sold my beloved S10 (too heavy for me now to enjoy day-to-day) and my SWM RS300R (too niche), and brought a T7 which seems way more versatile.  It's my 3rd Tenere, having had the 660 before the 1200, now the 700.


Great forum, and the threads were a real help.  eg, I've got a Rally Raid 90n/mm spring ready to fit.


Once the current UK lockdown is over, maybe I'll run into some fellow Kent riders I've seen on here...

Welcome to the forum... Since you have owned a supermoto might be interested in in reading threads started by @Rich TTon supermoto the T700... Or read my SM thread and check the list of mods... Would be nice to see another blue one with 17 inch wheels.

Hi Aleks, yes I read your (and Rich TT's) threads with interest.  I'll definitely be keeping the 21/18 wheels though, as I'm a dirt biker at heart, so will do some green-laning when the chalk dries out!


Thx for the welcome,
