Riding scary HARD Enduro on my T7 | Tenere 700 Project EP #004

The T7 project finale is here. It’s one of the funnest videos I’ve ever made. This bike is truly indescribable. I have enjoyed riding it as much as I have any other bike I’ve ‘owned’.

Right back when I set out to build this bike, I had very little idea of what the scope of the videos should be. How do I test the capability? How do I show it in a video?

In hindsight I think the idea is a good one. Ride it in terrain you’d normally ride an Enduro bike, with people of similar ability. In a way I’m glad we got the opportunity to go as far and varied with the riding as we did. It helped understand that this bike is supremely capable, more than I imagined it would. It let me do things on an ADV bike I didn’t know was possible for my ability level and that was a massive adrenaline rush.

At the end of this project, I’d also like to thank the brands involved in the series. Making a bike like this for a channel our size can’t come from our own budgets. Most of the parts on this bike were provided by the brands or distributors that made them. There is a list below of the modifications made. Every part I used contributed to making the bike what it is.
