    Hi guys, just wanted to tell my mods...

    When I ordered my speed RS, I included a couple of options, such as:

    - LED blinkers all around
    - bar-end mirrors (smaller)
    - heated grips
    - radiator cover
    - aluminum brake fluid reservoirs
    - crash protectors on front axle
    - crash protector on frame
    - saddle bag (triumph)
    - tank bag with quick release (from givi)
    - flyscreen
    - back axle slide protector
    - clutch-cable guide thing (engine side) in red
    - LED headlights
    - optimate battery charger

    After a while, I started to get annoyed about tailtidy, so I’ve placed a evotech one. Recently started reading about carbon, so treated myself with a carbon hugger. NICE!! Ordered in Canada, quite expensive when you calculate shipping and customs, but mounted it today. A pain in de but to get the bolt out on the chain side, but managed! Quite happy with the result!



    Only hope carbon is not addictive...

    Carbon is definitely addictive :worried:. I may change the stock rear hugger to a carbon one as well. Must try to resist, at least for a while anyway. Any other photos?

    - removed orange reflectors from fork
    - ordered carbon heal plate covers
    - ordered EVO tech oil cooler guard

    OH!! And switched from old school Garmin zumo 550 to TomTom Rider 550. Must say, one giant leap forward!

    What the speed lacks in terms of rideability you can make it up with add ons I guess.

    Oh yeah, No Hell yeah. Modifications are highly addictive and there is no known cure! If there were, I wouldn't take it anyway. That's what stock motorcycles are for. A blank slate! Go for it

    Shame that Triumph doesn’t have an OEM one, but I think it’s a nice alternative!

    Off to the next mod, expected late April.
