Hey JD.

Scared is on the Money. Motoradgarage are great, and fast to ship.

Crash Bars:
http://www.motorradgarage.com.au/pro...product_id=480

I also fitted SW sump Guard
http://www.motorradgarage.com.au/pro...product_id=404

And for radiator I went with Radguard at advice of my local accessories guys
http://www.radguard.com.au/triumph-t...diator-guards/

Each of these products are solid piece of kit, great build quality and easy to fit yourself.

Here is an album of each of the products on my bike and full kit out shot.

I sourced mine through my local dealer (he has dealt with Motorad in the past) at time of Purchase having spoken to Mike @ Motorad. I have never seen paypal as an option, but give them a call. They are helpful over the phone.

CHAOS!

I have done both



first I did the old cheap and nasty cable tie trick on the throttle tube to quicker the throttle by 20%... I suits my taste better

it can be done properly by ordering the Daytona throttle tube p/n T2040331

also put a 15T on the front (speedo is now out 10%)

I just came back from 2000km over the snowys with lots of dirt and it actually feels like the engine has a bit of punch now

I dont do single track on this bike, so YMMV

Now we know why it's called a "bash plate"! Nice caveman style toolkit by the way. As I'm about to get my 800xc and choose a bash plate for it I'm curious to know what happened here. cheers

The missus wants all of your phone numbers now.

And for anyone who hasn't already paid some ridiculous amount for the genuine triumph aux power socket, Jaycar have them cleverly disguised as Merit plug sockets:

http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=PS2092

Also plugs to fit onto your elecky devices
http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=PP2090

And if you couldn't be arsed doing that, here's an adaptor

Couldn't agree more. Philth's and Gundy's bikes had to be delivered to the local SA dealer on Wed this week so I put my hand up to help out. I rode Gundy's. At the first traffic light stop I asked my riding mate "What colours do they come in?" I just loved it.

I bought a 660Z Tenere 18 months ago so I reckon I might have to stretch that out a little more until she forgets how how old it is, but it's a Tiger for me......no problem. Great bike.

Anybody got a 'ride away' price for the bike they purchased in Queenland? Any purchase stories good or bad you would like to share?

I've got about 5 weeks until I can start getting fairdinkum about buying a XC.
Second hand '11 bikes are advertised for 11 - 15k. I'm still undecided , there's a nicely farkeled white'11 model here: http://www.bikepoint.com.au/all-bike...6586&silo=1400

I'm sure others will come up in the following weeks. However if a new bike is only another couple of k....
Thoughts?

Depends on your budget. I sent 3 dealers the same email asking for a ride away price including the factory options I wanted, and a discount on future sales. I didn't choose the cheapest, instead the one that took me seriously.

If its in good nick, fair price, km's that you're happy with, and a dealer service history and he's got both keys (I'm surprised how many haven't) then likely its been looked after. Get in to it.
