OK, “who the heck installs a bottle holder on an off-road capable Yamaha Tenere 700?”, I hear you scream!

Short answer is: “me!”. Longer answer is anyone who’s planning on touring with their T700 and doesn’t want to have to keep dismounting and opening their bags.

Mine mounts snuggly to the Adventure Spec crash bars I have installed and in a place where it’s completely out of the way and wouldn’t even incur damage off-road or when the bike was dropped.

You can use a generic bottle holder as found in most cycle shops but the R&G version allows you quickly adjust it for the size your bottle via a wing nut underneath and is very well made and nicely powder coated. This may feel like a major geek mod but in practical terms it’s brilliant, so ignore the bleating of the sheep!
