    First thing I did was take the rear seat off. Which is really nice to be able to do and UNBOLT ( finally ) the passenger foot pegs off the frame. I'm not a fan of a second soul on my back.
    But yes, your correct the the 2016 would be better,

    I also ride mostly on my own and enjoy it, but sometimes we do (longer) weekendrides 2up

    Maybe this is an option for 2up-Riding, but it don't seem higher than then the stock one

    The thin slammer/brat seat phenomena is really been a bad direction IMO. They look home made. Lack of cushion. And they do not flow with the bike.
    Its just an easy way out to have a custom (?) seat.

    Thicker seats like the 60's style are still available but its been my experience that the foam is too soft for long riding days.
    Hopefully something other than brat flat becomes available for the new Street Scrambler.
    Here is my non brat flat two up seat for my air cooled Scrambler... looks proper IMO.

    Here are a couple pics from yesterdays ride. Had a chance to add a few bits to the bike (Marlin Windscreen, Tek luggage rack, engine guards, hand guards, number plate).
    About the last thing I'm going to modify the bike is rerouting the cables to try to add 2" Rox Risers. I've put them on with the current cable configuration but they were too tight.

    IMG_4609.PNG Got about 1200 miles on her now. Threw her down a few dirt roads. Found some greasy mud that almost caused a few get offs. Was lucky not to drop it. But found some nice corners too.

    Which hand guards are you running? I took more than a few branches to my hands last weekend. Also that number plate is pretty cool. Mind sharing where you grabbed that as well?

    Dyrden, the hand guards are from Acerbis. Seem pretty solid and are backed with aluminum. I got the number plate directly from the Triumph website.

    Fantastic looking bike Dryden. I've got a gloss black one, and have installed the same Tec rack. Looking to set it up for longer trips etc. Dart are using my bike to prototype specific screens for the SS, at the moment I've got the classic screen on but will definitely be getting a Marlin too. How were the hand guards to fit? Id like to get some for mine, do you know which model of Acerbis they are? Have been torn between them and some Barkbuster storms.

    Hey Scramchez, for the handguards mine are the Acerbis Rally Pro X. They fit fine and seem to work well. I did some off-roading this weekend but haven't dropped the bike yet (so no true test).
    I'm trying to get my bike set up for a camping trip in a couple weeks. I know I should take my Super Tenere on that trip but I love having a smaller bike for the trails.

    Thanks for the quick reply! Cool, i'll look into them. I live in London, UK, so mine are as much for weather protection and looking after my levers when someone inevitably knocks the bike over with their car as they are to protect me from branches etc! Its such an enjoyable bike, i'll be commuting on it round town year round, but also setting up for longer trips round the UK and hopefully europe. Suspension might be the next thing I look at & I believe tec are working on a decat kit for it.

    The most disappointing thing is the small tank when traveling. For longer trips, there should be more range. Maybe the one from the new T100 fits!?

    IMG_4789.JPG So it turns out the "skid plate" stops before the "oil pan". Hope someone makes a real skid plate before I drain my oil the hard way.

    Hey Dryden, I agree. I actually broke my skid plate today going over a rock. Need someone to make a real aluminum skid plate. Maybe Tec will make one.

    Mines in sad shape but still holding on. Needs a proper skid plate for proper idiots like us.
