The headlight is very bright and electronically adjustable. For me, I'll still want to add some driving lights on the front. More visibility is a good thing.

What does the 20,000 mile service require in addition to checking valve clearance? I'm thinking about trading out of a K1200LT and want a bike that has far less maintenance cost than the LT.

Thanks Crazyman, didn't know about the e-adjust.

MHaz01, LT is pretty inexpensive maintenance wise.

Thinking REAL hard about buying a Trophy in Oregon at the Triumph store and spending a week riding it home along the coastline with wifey.

Gonna call them tomorrow and see if they have a silver one

I suppose a better design of the seat would help, but I've never had a stock seat fit perfect. For now, I use the Airhawk cushion.
Check with your local dealer about Triumphs alternate seat. I saw reported more than once that due to that American obsession with flat-footing at rest the low seat option for the rest of the world is shipped as the standard seat in the US & the rest of the worlds standard seat is the higher seat option. Worth checking so at least you could avoid riding with that colostomy bag strapped to the saddle.

Has anyone put bar risers on it yet? The seating position is close for me, but I'd need to get the bars up 2" or so to have my hands where I want them.

Not ready to buy one though, just asking the question.

Great pics flyingz06. I noticed your antenna seems to be nearly vertical. Did you move it ? Mine leans back along the line of the windscreen. Just curious.

I took a few shots and processed them as HDR. Three exposures merged into one.

Is that easy to install? Where did you order from?

I have some crash bars and fork/rear axle and handle bar sliders I ordered from Twisted Throttle. Just haven't gotten around to installing them yet. I plan on adding highway pegs (also from Twisted Throttle) to the crash bars.
