Uhhhh, Black Tiger, just because you ride on the wrong side of the road, I think you may have mixed up your left from your RIGHT?!

I agreed it did look backwards once you mentioned it. I'm glad it wasn't saved me a trip to the dealer :)

Yes it kind of does with the honey comb pattern but the Triumph guard is 20 bucks cheaper and i think it better visually "matches" the style of the other Triumph accessories. I got mine from Pro Italia here in California. I was thinking that i would get it quick turns out they needed to get it from Triumph so that added a week. Pure Triumph also carries it.

Picked up my 2013 800XC yesterday (flat khaki green), made it 11 miles before I picked up a nail in the rear tire
Dealer picked me up for free and had the service department stay open late to fix it for me. Thanks to Florida Sports Cycle and ATV for the great customer service, as usual. Loving the bike so far...

Thanks. It fits me better than my GS or X-Challenge and is much better on the road than the other large bore dual sports I've owned. Did a 60 mile loop in some sugar sand today and drove away impressed with it.

It's an amazingly well balanced bike. It eats sand.

Found this site 2wheelpros seems to have the cheapest prices on Triumph after market options. The radiator guard goes for 75 shipped.

Subtotal: $65.79
Shipping & Handling: $8.95
Total: $74.74

I was really surprised how well it handled deep sand. Now I can't wait to get the motor broken in!

I just got my TPMS sensors from 2wheelpros; great price, and I got them 12 days later. I'll definitely order from them again.
Triumph Detroit also has some real good deals on Triumph accessories.

That was just to weed out those that can't tell a KTM from a Triumph.

I'm waiting for a mod to get back to me to decide where to best put the thread and my creation. Then I'll PM everyone and we can get the orders going.

I'll figure out price, time and shipping this week too.
