Thanks, and Im down to meet up and ride, though id perfer it to be a little warmer then it is this week.


In regards to heated grips, sold my BMW this summer (I bought it thinking my wife would ride with me two up, and one ride in she said shes done) so wasnt worth keeping it to me...but for sure miss those heated grips, first and only bike I have ever had with heated anything... and had no idea how much better cold weather riding would be with it... thats literally the only thing I miss from that bike.

Nothing significant planned here. Maybe I'll swap out the headlights on my triple and/or Thruxton.

The triple will probably get generic LED housings from China. Nobody seems to make a legit version of those. I might go with a Truck Lite 7" LED for the Thruxton. I'd also need a $100+ trim ring to do that though. Thanks Triumph for now making your "standard" 7" headlights non-standard.

I think the dealer fixed it by replacing the cluster, but I haven't had too many chances to ride it lately. Still trying to get hold of corporate to squeeze them for more warranty.

No mods really. Thinking about reflashing my concours 1400 and adding a full exhaust but might look in to getting a new Ninja 1000.


Also waiting on my Honda Monkey to arrive.

You have some really good motorcycles in the stable and I bet, monkey is going to be super fun! Good luck with it

thanks!


I am pretty stocked about the prospect. I put almost 3k on my Z125 last year. not epic from a mileage standpoint but when you consider the amount of seat time when you can't go much over 55mph, it's a little more impressive.

Scot love the concours' you pick what system you want yet for exhaust? Akrapovic, Leo, Muzzy?

Also, the 1000 is a nice ST but just out of curiosity why do you want one when you have a 14?

Thanks! The more I think about it, the more I miss those heated grips... My 916 already has to much bogging down the wiring so I may just have to pick up some battery heated gear... I just haven't really searched it out to much yet.
