    Hi sandy, after a night's sleep, I still find this posting confusing, mabey it's because I'm on a phone !!.
    Sometimes I get an open box then I get to reply under a QUOTE heading. Anyway let's try something?

    Cool, feel a bit more confident with this, how about a pic of your bike??
    This is one of mine.

    We're you a dealer in another life ??
    Our local triumph dealer wouldn't have that many bikes on a good week.

    Nice job, I had to get another front fairing to cut down, but kept all the original gear, certainly makes a difference with higher bars. :)

    Do you find it better with bar end mirrors?

    I am still undecided because I quite like the original mirrors and I can just about see behind me. ;)

    It was necessary in the end, sitting more upright I couldn't see behind, the genuine triumph mirrors are the best.

    You're right, the stock mirrors make the bike look balanced, but you need to see the cops as soon as possible

    Had a small shop from 1980 to 1993.
    None of my current bikes are from that.
    We sold the 2 1984 Ninja 900 's used in the first Top Gun Movie to Paramount Studios..
    Got into real estate in 1994 and did a lot better financially.

    6 " garages " in 2 locations with the 2 largest being 2500 Sq Feet, each.
    The Triumph Garage .....
    Video from early this year. The non triumph have since been moved to another garage. There are currently 14 Triumphs in the Triumph Garage.

    This has got to be one of the best private (not a dealer) collections of motorcycles going, in a beautiful location high in the Alps (I have climbed in the area numerous times), fantastic place. It was rebuilt after a devastating fire January 2021, out of 430 machines only 55 survived, these were all Indian motorcycles that were part of a special exhibition shown elsewhere in the building that the firefighters managed to save. Some roads remind me of Scotland. Looking forward to some unrestricted roads in 4 days time, with an action packed race programme. Ride safe all from an ageing Rocker.

    I'm nowhere close to that. I've been riding 8 years, and in that time I've owned 8 bikes. (Two currently).

    I need to show this to my wife - she thinks I have a serious mental issue owning around 15 (unsure of the actual number). That said, even I think she's right .....
