    A week old...somehow managed to get 350 miles on it despite no Spring yet in Virginia. I put a tail rack on it along with the tank bag. Fly screen is next. I think I would have preferred the multi-colored tank, but it was hard to argue with the super price I got (2017 clearance). I still think it's a great looking bike no matter what the trim!

    Welcome from a close neighbor! Good looking bike, just waiting for the madness to begin. Do check out the link for the bike rally you were given in a previous post, should be good fun.

    Welcome from Calif. Great looking bike.
    You mentioned a fly screen next. Just a suggestion. You might want to look into a larger screen. I have a new Street Twin and purchased the larger touring screen. It's not that big but does a great job at overall wind protection. A fly screen won't protect much at all.

    Anyway- Enjoy your ride !!

    I got what they call a "longhaul" flyscreen (Isn't that like a jumbo shrimp?). Looks a bit bigger than the regular flyscreen, but not by much. Should be interesting... BTW, I took a friend's street twin out for a spin a couple of days ago. Super easy to ride and the stock exhausts are great!

    Hi Dave. 350 miles in the first week, sounds to me like you're enjoying your new bike.

    I've got a Triumph fly screen I'm not using and a clear bigger screen I replaced with a tinted one. Email me at [email protected] if you are interested. - Steve
