I don't like the bike in "Ginger Spice on-the-blob red" though

Is that the official Yamaha colour, or is is called Gerry's Period?

MT07 Tracer is out now.

Looks a really fun bike for the money :)

Actually, is that the standard screen?  looked taller on my phone.  The standard screen is okay.

The screen was quite effective  actually...it surprised me.


Aerodynamically the TDM screen  was rubbish, you need a lower velocity  air  on the inside to smooth the transition where the forced air leaves the trailing edge. There was none on the TDM design, there is on the Tracer.

That big screen  in the picture is fugly

If the small screen was modified it would be fine - put back in the material they took out for the fancy side cut-outs, it would be wider & serve a useful purpose.
Classic style over practicality there !



Better ?

I'd like to see Yam make a new Superten out of the MT07.

Big screen looks awful IMO.

Small screen is in keeping with the bikes looks, but also looks ineffective, no happy medium :(

Tracer I say on Saturday - Nice I thought




Not so sure about the big screen though - the way it was fixed & the flex in it - don't think it will last 5 minutes.

They're replacing screens on the 1200GS LC's under warranty due to cracking round the fixings - and they're a bloody sight more substantial than the Tracer screen

I've  got my winter Gaucho  on...tis like a duvet.


The GSA is better than mine (i had that 1150 GSA for a couple of weeks), but the GS isn't  bad...despite some of the wingeing on the GSer forum.

Mind you, Im a small guy in comparison to  some.

 I can drive at over 100mph in my car and the windscreen keeps my hair in place and the heated seats are lovely ;)
