Dirt & Dual Sport Rides / Re: 2009 BMW F800GS vs 2021 Yamaha Tenere 700

Having recently bought a "used" T7, I can say I'm happy after some mods. It is sprung for a lightweight, 160-170 lb rider. You'll have to budget for springs front and rear right off the bat. Finding a T7 is gonna be the challenge, and if you do, it's not gonna be just a little more than $6500. Depending on the dealer, out the door reported prices have been over $12K. Supply is low, almost no dealers have them in stock, and rumor has it that it's gonna be late March before the next bikes become available, assuming there isn't already a deposit on them.

There's a couple good threads over on ADVRider on T7s, and there's a dedicated forum; https://www.tenere700.net/

Kawasaki Heavy Industries has announced that the Motorcycle company is being spun off. Maybe part of the reason is that they have been unable to move quickly enough to keep up with market change?

Not including their bragging rights race bikes, Kawasaki has typically came out with a model, make a few minor adjustments and then do a 20 year run or until the tooling runs out. 

I literally ran out of Kawasakis to buy so I moved on to other brands.  LOL!

I will probably be on the road for work, but wondering if the Van Van 200 with its mind blowing Hp would qualify.  I almost got a monkey but so glad I got the bike with larger rims and fat tires.

This was my first Klx 250, it was 1979 KLX250a. Pic is 1980 but no difference and they didn't make them but for those two years, it was a 5 speed and not street legal. I don't know anybody else that had one. I got it to start riding enduros again, I had been out of state at school and was lucky to have enough money to eat and put gas in my car.  I saw this and thought this bike looks like it will rip. My last bike was a Husky 360 two stroke and compared that, the bike definitely did not rip. So we went down to ride what i guess was the Goobler Getter enduro, I just know it was in Alabama. Well came to a creek crossing and tried to lift the front wheel to get over a steep bank, all the bike did was accelerate so I smacked dead into the bank and went over the handlebars. Later I caught a false neutral on a downhill hairpin on a FS road and just sailed out into space, cracking some ribs. I just trail rode on it after all that. So in 2006 they came out with the KLX 250s or h or whatever and I bought one. I was thinking after all this time, that bike has to rip now.  Same guy still owned the dealership where I bought the first, and he's standing out in the parking lot while I give it the first test,  I pull over and tell him it no stronger than the first one, he says "I was afraid of that".  Now they have the KLX 300, I'm going to get one, I bet this bike is gonna rip :D
