I also don't like it very much that we have such a monster thread. Would very much prefer an area for Triumph bikes.

But using the Google-foo really helps, type this into Google search field:

site:advrider.com inurl:t=599070 Tiger XC risers on Roadie

and you get some pretty good results quickly. If you're on the Mac you can also use LaunchBar to pre-define a search that already specifies advrider.com and the thread itself, then you only need to type the search term.

Yeah, I read the sticky on the google tricks to search specific threads, etc.

The problem with that (for me) is that I don't use the forum default of 15 posts per page. I use 100 posts per page because I don't like having to load the next page after reading just 15 posts in a long thread. Therefore the google results always send me to the wrong page. (My Tiger 800 thread is only 175 pages long instead of 1,166)

Ah, getting fancy. Easy solution: use a different browser (or switch your browser to "private" mode) for the search so that your log in cookie isn't sent. That means you get forum defaults for the search links. After that you can use the post id.

That's a good tip.

Easier solution would be a sub forum.

But that's not something you can do yourself today.

Interesting. Care to expand? Obviously, I haven't read those posts over there...

Bit of on-topic: Called a local dealer. They know nothing about fuel lines disconnecting, but there are two outstanding recalls on my bike, one for the centerstand bumper and one for the shifter return spring.

So here's a stupid question: I registered on the Triumph website. They have my VIN. Why couldn't they tell me about outstanding recalls?

I've sent the mods a message asking for a Triumph area on the forum similar to the BMW one with its "Parallel universe" and stuff but they just seem to ignore it. If more people asked they might take notice.

I don't know how the website works but my dealer calls me to schedule the recall appointments...

Yeah, I tend to replace tires long before some people think they're done too. If the center tread is no longer visible, it's considerably too late in my book. My point was that the Full Bore rear will take a surprisingly long time to go from that "hmm, going to have to replace it soon" point to actually needing to be replaced.

I've gotten a recall notice, on a different Triumph model, via mail.

Used to be even easier as they had a VIN page that anyone could use to check. Triumph withdrew that about 18 months or so ago.
