No thank you, Delmar.

Was notified this morning that my V.I.N. has been assigned and my Venom Yellow ABS roadie is on its way to Canada's West Coast. It should arrive in Vancouver in about 2 weeks and I'll be down to pick it up May 26 and ride it the 500 miles home. It's going to be a good summer.

Center Stand Spring

@Mark, yes it is a double spring but it's not that beefy. I will definitely be upgrading that part on mine this weekend to improve the tension and reduce slap when it gets bumpy.

Can you tell me the basic dimensions of your Touratech rack for reference?

I'm pretty sure I've heard that slap already. Today will be my first 'real' ride on her so I'll keep y'all updated.

Went to the local Triumph dealer yesterday, who just happened to have a white 800 sitting there. I sat on it, and was impressed with how natural the bike seemed to feel. If I wasn't so pressed for time, I'd have tried to talk the dealer into a demo ride.

My bike had the double spring before it left for a happier life on the side of the road. I tried a hardware store spring that looked beefier, 3.5 inches long, but it did not work. If I pushed the S bracket up with my hand the center stand follows to the correct retracted position. The second I let go of the S bracket, it falls down along with the center stand.

Can the ABS be switched off?
May have been covered, but I missed it if it was.
