SirRidesAlot Posted June 16, 2021 Share Posted June 16, 2021 Hello to one and all! After many years away from the saddle, I have returned on this amazing machine, the Ténéré 700! The restrictions that COVID brought to my life had a significant negative impact on my mental and physical well being. The cure? A T7 of course! Bikes of my past: 2004 Honda 599 2006 Honda CBR600 F4i 2006 Honda CBR600 RR As you can see from the past selections, I have no off-road riding experience, but I'm really looking forward to the boundless explorations that an adventure bike can allow us to achieve. I understand that the bike is only 1 part of the team and that I need to re-train myself and learn the rider skills needed as an adventure rider. As a new adventure rider, on this fine tall bike, I expect I'll be dropping her quite frequently once off-road... as such, some protection and a few other add-ons: Outback Motortek | Lower & Upper Crash Bars Outback Motortek | Symmetrical | Pannier Racks (with X-brace for a 1 Gallon Rotopax on the inner left pannier rack) Yamaha OEM | Low Seat (lowers 20mm) Quadlock iPhone Mounting System (I'll get a proper GPS when needed) Yamaha OEM | Center Stand (Ordered) If any of you more experienced riders want to share with me a few hard lessons you've learned which I could benefit from, I would be most grateful. Ride On & Explore Safely! 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
