    I'm planning a few mods with my 2010 SE, not least the seat. I rather like the look of this one:

    https://www.britishbikebits.com/triumph-hinckley-bonneville-classic-style-seat-silver-logo

    albeit the out of stock one with gold Triumph logo.

    But these people appear to have the same seat for about £35 less:

    https://www.classicbikeshop.co.uk/hinckley-triumph-bonneville-seat-gold-logo.html

    So my question is-does anyone have experience of either or both of these seats? Am I right in thinking they are the same item and it is simply cheaper at one place, or do gremlins lurk? :)

    I believe that both suppliers are reputable and reliable, although I have not had dealings with either of them.
    That seat (those seats?) look to be the testicles du chien.:cool: Much better than the original to look at and hopefully kinder to the botty area.:)

    I have one on my T100 in Brown. A wee bit pricey but incomparably more comfortable. Picture to follow......

    The brown seat really does suit the bike.

    The riders part of the seat looks like its got a damp patch Call :eek::):)

    Thanks all, I'll go for one of those. I think they may be a bit longer than stock seat, hope the grab rail I ordered yesterday will go on OK :oops: I'd prefer to keep my stock seat as a backup for when/if I resell it. Ordered centre stand, grabrail and a couple of funky billet items-replacement oil filler cap and a clutch pivot arm cover. Keep me busy when I get back from NZ etc :)

    I usually send my seats to R K LEIGHTON and get exactly what I want.
