    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.

    I added the front fender extender. Now the pipes stay clean

    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. :freaky

    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.

    Ordered directly from triumph website. Fast shipping! The fasteners are a little cheap that are included. I also used a plastic bonding agent to secure it.

    Quick question.

    Given that you have a PP (with small screen, i guess), how do you find the air management from the Trophy to the Duck?

    I ask as i'm still intrigued by the big Triumph - but i find high speed handling on the MTS has been improved by fitment of a small screen (and an upgrade to a Shoei GT Air) and i distinctly remember that on the test ride of the Trophy feeling unnerved doing lane changing on the motorway at speed.

    Love them both. The Duc (no k) is great at all speeds. I have a vario screen on it.

    The trophy is fine so far up to 90 degrees. You just leave the screen in the lowest position. Hotter than the Duc of course, but no issues.

    I'm amazed by the handling of the Trophy! So smooth and confident. Flicks around like a light bike, although it feels heavy when sitting on it. Must ride to appreciate!

    There is a recall out for a lot of the new Trophy bikes regarding a potential leak issue with the fuel tank.

    I got a call from the dealer yesterday, and taking mine in this morning for a new fuel tank. 2-3 hour job.

    I've read on other forums that a lot of places can't get the parts.

    Went out for another demo today. The bike suits me and what i do (and how i do it). I can see me doing the deal on one. The SE pack is growing on me. Good fun zapping down the Motorway with music blaring..:D

    New fuel tank was installed today. It took 6 hours:huh
    Fortunately, they still had my Tiger 800 and let me run around on that for the day.

    So, I finally got all the R&G scuff protection things I ordered from Twisted Throttle installed on the bike. The entire faring had to come off to install the crash bars.

    There was plastic everywhere

    Think things turned out pretty good though. I like! :clap
