    Thats pretty cool, nice that they show a few "mess ups" at the end too. That should sell a few T700's , although not sure they need to, my local Yam dealer has sold out for the year

    Yes it says 880mm seat hgt, near as feckit 36"? So it squashes down on the suspension with your weight.
    Gotta get on it first., before ya can squash it down.
    Edit: check, 34.6" seat, not that bad then.

    I rode my chums XR250R ok, tip toes when stopped, I could get on & off ok. That was 36" seat hgt & didn't squash down a lot.

     :745: I wish, ha. My trail riding is reduced to quite gentle stuff nowadays, my hurts last too long. Amazing skill of these boys who can perform fantastic stunts on not very suitable bikes. That Tenere 700 is a heavy lump to throw about like he can, effortlessly.

    Funnily enough I met a guy the weekend at a local bike cafe who was eulogising about the Serow he'd just acquired (first time I've actually seen one in the flesh). Did look a pretty smart bike, mind you his looked it had hardly been used.
