Preparing My Triumph Scrambler for RTW

Tina (The name of my Scrambler): Hello Paul

Paul: Hello Tina, so I want to take back home to London, via Siberia, the BAM Road, Mongolia, Kazakhstan and few other places. Up for it?

Tina: No, F'ck Off

Paul: Wait! What? Why?

Tina: Look at me, Iím overweight, Iím really not sure Iím built for such shenanigans, I can and do make you look good in Manhattan.

Paul: Well this isn't an adventure for no reason. Lets get you some glad rags and handbags.

So begins the task of outfitting Tina the Triumph ready for the road.

This is what I have outlined so far

Alpina Wheels, these will allow me to run tubeless and they are infinitely stronger than my current ones! definitley the best around for my bike,

Knobblies (Continental TKC80 Tyre)

Road Tires (Pirelli Scorpions)

Panniers: Metal Mule

Handguards: Triumph Tiger 1050ís

Rear Suspension: Ohlins S36PR1C1LB

Front Suspension: Bitubo Cartridge

In addition:
19T Sprocket
Fly Screen
Power Outlets
Red Jerry Cans for range (the current 120m will not suffice)
Ortileb Soft Luggage
Garmin 665 GPS (this looks to be discontinued, so waiting out for a potential replacement)

+ personal/camping kit

Let me know your thoughts and ideas, anything I have missed?
