    Having put 600 miles on my 2018 Bonneville T100 Black this past weekend on freeways out of Los Angeles and winding two-lane roads along the Central Coast, I'm hoping the forum has some suggestions to make my ride more comfortable: (1) My throttle hand is numb from vibrations and maybe wrist placement on the stock handlebars. Different handlebars or grips? (2) The stock tires really "wobble" on the "seam" while lane splitting, which is nerve wracking. (3) Is it possible to make the pipes louder, to signal my approach with an engine rev while lane splitting? Thanks!

    Hi Cazb and welcome in to the Triumph Asylum - Nursie will be round soon will your 'meds'.

    1. Numb hands - before you do anything else, check the engine mount bolts to ensure correct tightness.

    After that choose any and all of the following:
    Experiment with handlebar position;
    Change the handlebar grips;
    Try riding with more revs on;
    Try thicker gloves;
    Check throttle body balance;

    2. Check tyre pressures;
    Change tyres to Avon AM26;

    3. Change your exhausts for replacements from here : https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/bsa111?_trksid=p2047675.l2559

    Cheers
