Good point on kill switch / ABS. I just found that somewhere (Canadian video on GS / XC comparison?) in the last week. Also - Touratech makes a sidestand guard - not sure it keeps mud out - but does protect from rock damage.

Im not worried about turning it back on on the move just off... Who wants to be the test rat?
Jim Davis at Eastern Beaver in Japan has a loom for V-Stroms which does just that. I had one on my Wee.

That's one smart dude. I bet if we bug him enough, he'd do it for the XC. I bought his heated grip thingamabob. Couldn't ask for a better made solution to switched aftermarket heated grips.

I've removed my side stand switch from it's original position. It's still in circuit, although not used, and safely out of the way, ziptied up near the top end of the gear linkage rod.

Kildareman - Great idea! Any pics of your re-route ? ScrambDaddy - perhaps you're correct - more will be revealed. But the 800 - 1200 class is getting pretty saturated for this economy. I'm not sure how much demand there will be for 1050's with all the other 'bling' out there. However - if they do discontinue Roadie - (this is the silver lining) should be some GREAT clearance deals on a very capable adventure machine.

Unbolt from stand bracket. Feed back under the engine and out from the wire guide. Then feed up the lhs to photo location. Zip tie to wiring loom behind it.

I hope you are correct Walter! I love my 1050 ... be nice to see a new, upgraded version.

I don't think so either because the Roadie is just that. i.e. a road bike. The new 1200 is a slightly different beast for a slightly different job. A case of keeping all bases covered. Also I read somewhere that the 1050 was THE best selling Tiger of the lot so they're hardly going to stop that unless the sales plummet.

Pic of foot peg please!!!

I need some help. I'm having some fitment issues with my happy trails SU racks. I need some pics of someones rear/pillion foot peg on the exhaust side. I need multiple views if possible. One pointing straight forward with the camera pretty close to the pipe, one from the top, and one from the side facing to the rear. I think mine might be bent. I don't see any stress cracks on any welds and it doesn't seem like the paint is cracking any where. While I was camping this last weekend my bike fell over in the middle of the night. I don't think it would have bent the peg but something just isn't right. Here is what I'm talking about. See how its slightly bulged out on the par of the peg closest to the pipe? It seems like it should be more straight.
Edit: after looking through several other pics I think its normal... hopefully someone can help me confirm.

Was that a real advertising slogan or something used by Triumph? Awesome!
