If not, the various performance tuners that will almost certainly be available soon will likely have settings to correct the issue.

Basically, I wouldn't worry about it if that is what is keeping you from purchasing this bike.
I agree with you in principle but, as of today Triumph maintains that the ECU cannot be flashed with third-party firmware. Supposedly, the ECU can sense this and will either lock itself or turn into a brick.

not working for metal mule or anyone but myself

dear new york luke

i live in new york city . i am a retired commodities trader . i used to work on the exchange floor in building seven of the world trade center before it was destroyed by evil lunatic holier than thou muslim terrorists who think they are going to paradise filled with virgins when they die . there is nothing more dangerous in the world than religious fanatics who mentally live in the dark ages and despise everybody that doesn't kiss mohammed's ass each day .
i have nothing to do with triumph or metal mule . i just like their products . but there are certainly many other excellent luggage systems for the explorer 1200 from hepco motech touratech jesse and givi . actually i don't even like panniers on my bike because they ruin the fine design lines of the triumph motorcycle . panniers make a motorcycle look like the rider is delivering groceries for zabar's . i only mount panniers on my bike ( which is a yamaha stryker ) when i leave the city for overnight travel . i definitely dislike the look of top boxes and have not ever used one . i appreciate all well made motorcycle farkles . i simply try to use the best accessories available for a particular motorcycle if i can afford them . thanks for listening .

I'm surprised by the amount of people waiting on bikes they have had deposits on. Triumph gives dealers priority when they take a deposit on a bike, meaning they won't fill a dealers stock order if another has a deposit. The dealer also had to go to required school so maybe a lot of these dealers dragged their feet signing up for school.

Blue launch model in stock at Pete's Cycle in Baltimore MD. MSRP plus $495 freight, $230 assembly/prep, $189 processing fee. Taxes and tags depending on state.

Yes, I work there.

Yeah im getting ready to pull the plug on this one there has been very poor communication on my salesmens part ever since he got my deposit with accessories im spending 18500 plus i would expect a little service for that might have to start shopping for a dealer who wants to get me my bike and keep me in the loop if nothing else i would think i should have a VIN by now

cold feet, wet feet

Hi, all.
Haven't seen anyone mention this elsewhere. Roads were wet this morning from last night's rain with a little bit of rain falling. My ride to work is about nine miles, almost all 40mph and under.

When I arrived, the backs of my left leg was damp and my left heel was soaked, through the boot. I'm thinking that the exposed rear tire is throwing all the road spray around getting me wet from behind.

Maybe it'll improve with panniers on, but maybe not. Any ideas for a solution? Is this the kind of problem that a hugger can fix?

(damp) Dave

Doggerell - what happened to the Super Tenere? Did you not get it? Or you got it and didn't like it?

I am about to page 135 of this thread. I think I just have the new bike itch so I am definitely paying attention to reviews and comparisons. I have an 2009 Stelvio. Just for grins I called the nearest Triumph dealer nearest to me in Indianapolis to find out availibility and pricing. They have a demo to ride which is of course the "launch" model priced at $16,999.00 plus the 495.00 freight and taxes. The regular model will be at $15,699 plus freight. Guess I was taken aback by the intro launch model price upcharge over the regular model price. Still a very nice ride.

The launch price is more bc that model comes with some factory installed accessories. Can one opt out of the accessories included with the launch model? And I haven't priced the accessories individually. Is the price the same or cheaper if you get the launch model?

The launch model only comes with certain group of accessories at a slight discount. Not a good deal if there are pieces you don't want. I picked up a non-launch model in Seattle this past weekend and I got 20% off all accessories. Unfortunately, he didn't have most of what I wanted in stock but they'll be installed at the first service later this month.

OK, is the Cat Converter underneath the bike, covered by the skid plate or is it built into the muffler???

IF it's underneath the bike, is it welded in place?
