How is it on the highway? Thinking about a Tenere 700 with the same engine, but the published hp/tq numbers are quite a bit lower than my FZ8's, so I'm worried it'll be a dog on the highway. :yikes:

thats one of the things i had to get used to. on the R1 if someone was driving like an idiot, or getting to close i could drop a gear and disappear.
on the MT07 its not as easy to throttle out of danger, i had to use my brakes more.

it would still go 120mph, but i lost some top speed and added more torque doing some of the same things i did to my R1, like swapping sprockets -1/+2, and a flash tune.


its a really fun bike to ride. but i dont think ive gone longer than 100miles or so.

i bought some bilt gloves that fell apart, the wrist pulled off when i was putting them on and the fingers let go when i was riding around. cyclegear took them back and the only questions were how they could make it better. only had them a week but it was around a thousand miles. i got a credit for what i paid and bought a pair of sedicis, they're light summer gloves with a lot of leather and carbon fiber sliders.

my winter gloves are big gauntlets that go up my sleeves, they claim to be waterproof but i still get wet and cold

Keep thinking about buying something to get in addition to the Grom, but it’s just too fun riding on city streets.

that and I have a short inseam and a FS bike being low enough (that isn’t a SS - I prefer the neutral riding position of the Grom) might be a problem :rofl:
