after a long ride from

after a long ride from the tensed up riding attitude brought on by the ‘mechanical sympathy’ for small cc single cylinder engines being revved into the limits at speed for long distances. The parallel twin, easy revving power plant in the T7 does seem to diminish that problem significantly which will make it great for long distance tours down the highways and byways out of the cities and suburbia to it’s natural and instinctual terrain of the African bushveld, where it comes alive chasing the setting sun along dried riverbeds and over the rock up mountain goat trails.
