    Thanks Joe. Silver Ice says Triumph - very apt considering this weeks weather. I was a bit put out when an onlooker described it as "a grey one". Suits the cafe racer look I think.

    Welcome buddy :)

    Every bike I have ever owned..... The 1st priority is decent tyres suspension setup ;)

    Then starts all the blink blink stuff o_O

    I hope you are successful with the changes. It's not simple when you ride real roads with all their possible variations and looks like you sometimes have a passenger which I don't on the Thruxton. Suspension adjustment is whole lot more complex these days!

    Cheers, likewise. I had some joy with Triumphs preload adjustments for myself but hope the “Quad Valve” F15K (ID 20 mm cartridge) with full adjustment on Compression, Rebound and Spring Preload should make all the difference.

    That sounds very high tech. Won't feel a thing even if you run over your own foot.
