I test rode numerous bikes and did massive research (thanks to this site) before deciding the T800 would best fit my style of riding.
Accessories include Triumph factory front beak fender, radiator guard, crash bars, skid plate, larger windscreen, handguards, and headlight protector. Added Rox risers (these were a great addition), SW-Motech racks and the TraX boxes. Top rack and box yet to come. Still working through the break-in period before my first trip.
If you lay a tape measure from the bike's centerline to the outside of each TraX box, are they symmetrical?
I really dislike some of the BMW GS systems where one box clearly sticks out further than the other.
