Trail wings are referred to as Death Wings, not Battle Wings...
I think it's safe to say you can lump the Battle Wings in that category, too...

Everybody's got an opinion on tires.... mine is that Battlewings are just about on par with the rest of the 90-10 tires which means they are darn good on pavement and damn poor in mud, sand, and loose dirt/gravel. I'm also of the opinion that Trailwings acquired the "Deathwing" moniker because they are sold routinely on small dual-sports that novice riders buy and then immediately take into tough off-road conditions, promptly falling on their ass. And this has very little to do with the brand of tire.

Unfortunately they were not able to solve the problem
Today I went back to place an order for an ECU. Basicly everything else has been replaced from the fuel supply and it still doesn't run properly.

Not quite sure how long it's going to take to get a new ECU but hopefully it's going to fix the fuel supply problems assuming that the problem is at the fuel supply...
Have the injectors been swapped out?

Only if you can get Heidenau to actually make and ship them in 150/70 17" ...

He said since it had such few miles on it he was going to wait to see what developed...

When I picked mine up there was some residue on the cylinder, which concerned me. The dealer said it was just an anti-corosion product. They cleaned it off and it hasn't returned. Fortunately it didn't look like yours does. I hope it isn't going to be a problem.

Ahh, unfortunatly not my bike, I was just test riding it...
I think I will wait for the 2012 model, Dark frame and hopefully bolt on passenger peg brackets and a couple more color choices.

When does Triumph typically put the next year's models on their web site?

Usually about 6 months after they show up at the dealer.

The stock seat gets a little "lumpy" after riding for a few hours. It's like I can feel the plastic bits underneath the foam.
