There's something about the fenderless front I like. Might fit a fender brace to close out the fender mounts. Sure, in the function department it makes no sense, and you'll get soaked in the rain, and just might take a stone or pebble in the face, but hey!! Looks kinda cool

Hey! It's under the covers with a Speed Triple or something. Shedding it's fenders and suchforth.
Disgraceful behavior.

It looks nice and meaty. The tread is way deeper on the 140 than the 130 ever was. I've already put a few miles on it in the gravel and on pavement. It feels great so far but so did the 130. No clearance issues and hopefully it wears like the front 100/90-19 is wearing.

Good report as I'm currently pondering the 140 vs 130 question. Also looking at the Mefo as it maybe easier to get. Have you go a profile pic of how the larger tire looks ?

Thanks

My only worry wiseanhyzer would be your oversize tire stuffing up into your tail light wiring harness on a bottom out. It happened to me for some reason and shredded my harness with a stock sized TKC.

Maybe something to look out for!

I'm about an hour south of Boulder in Evergreen. Send me a PM if you want more information about roads in the area or if you want to try and meet for a ride.

Ordering information for the ADV decals is in the "Vendors" section:

I went to the Triumph dealership yesterday to check out the bonneville and scrambler. Rode them and loved them both but the Scrambler fit my 6'1" frame better and I was set to buy one. The dealer was even going to put on a bonneville arrow exhaust for me because I don't like the scrambler setup. But then I rode the street triple. WOW!! I had to buy one and the scrambler will have to wait until I buy the next bike.

The problem with shopping at the Triumph place is that yeah, the Scrambler is awesome, but then I sat on the T100 Black, and it's awesome! Then I sat on the Speed Triple, then the Thunderbird.

Also, my local Triumph place is also a BMW dealership, so then I played around on the F800 and 1200GSA. It's going to be hell when I actually go out to buy.

Hey Killstar, see you are new to the asylum. Check out the Regional forums: Kansas riders and KC BBQ threads. You're welcome anytime.
Have several of the bikes you were sitting on and can give you the straight on them.

Thanks Colorado Scrambling (and Fire Escape)

I'm probably riding from Washington DC to Boulder Sept 10th for work. 1700 miles.
I only have 3 days or so. Read an old post of yours about Highway 36 being an Ok alt. to 40 0r 70
Any good?
Cheers.

Hopefully shouldn't be a problem with 10mm over length Hagon shocks.

I have to say that the profile looks way better on the 140. I thought the 130 looked squared off when it was new!! Also felt squared off when cranking it hard over. Good tyres though. Really impressed me in Norway last month. I'll be using nothing else from now on.

I meant to ask how you were getting on with the K60s, you just answered the question. My rear TW is about 75% worn now at just 2500 so will be swapping both tyres out this month. That 140 looks nice but I'm wondering how heavy it is compared to the 130 - it all adds to unsprung weight which isn't a great idea.
