Congratulations!!!

That is a beautiful bike!

Better than the FJR? That's difficult to believe, but I'll take your word for it. That Triumph must be a fantastic bike! In a year or two, I'll be looking at one.

Well, that picture is not a Tigger (800GS I think) so it's hard to say how good the Tigger version is. I will say the SW Motech skid plate has a similar setup at the rear to protect the knuckle.

Trade for a F800GS and cash?

Just kidding. Looks great.

FJR has a smooth engine, but feels like riding a dinosaur now.

Skid Plates

The SW Motech skid plate is riveted together. There have been several that have failed, although they were seriously abused.
The Altrider skid plate is a fully welded assembly and offers excellent protection. Its somewhat pricey but well worth protecting your investment.

flyingz06, how's the bike set up?

I know a lot of FJR guys/gals add a topcase, taller windshield, wider mirrors, etcetera.

Are you going to have to do anything to the Triumph re: setting it up for you?

Nice bike! I was at our local dealership today as they rolled that exact bike into the showroom. Like you said- very nice fit and finish. My all time favorite bike is my FJR and I'm interested to hear more comparisons as you get to ride it.
Congratulations.

I'm not doing anything at this point. No need for taller shield. It's perfect as is. Not planning in top box, I personally think they r ugly. Ill provide more comparison as I ride. 30 mins today and I'm really sold on this bike. No looking back at the FJR.

Ain't it nice when you know you make the right choice? Congrats on the bike. It looks fantastic.

As far as topcases, I love mine. I ride with it attached all the time. It might look dorky, but it's oh-so-useful.
