    Really pleased with new look. Saddle feels awfully hard though. :confused:

    Bonus in learning something new about my bike. Had to remove the rear mudguard to take off the old Triumph rear rack. I know, I know, it's only 4 bolts and a wiring connector to be unplugged but it was something new to me.

    I'll whip off the rear foot pegs next. Any one know where I can get the blanks from to tidy up that area, please ?

    Cheers JJ

    They are quite hard to start with Johnjo,Give it about 10,000 miles and it will start to soften up a little :D..

    Thanks half ton. Don't think I can wait that long. Will have to break out the sheepskin again.

    On a more serious note,They do feel a little firm at first, But give it a few good runs and it will shape up,Mine is still firm but far more comfy than the stocker

    I did the same to mine last summer.

    Since then it's had a tail tidy and new indicators.

    Also, talking about the hard ride, it's not all down to the seat. Replace the rear shocks, it'll transform the ride and make the bike so much more comfortable to ride. And, as a bonus the new shocks together weigh less than one of the old ones!

    That's a stunning looking bike Mr Toad. Love the colour. I preferred the white piping option on that seat too, but it wasn't on a half price deal like the plain one was.

    I've got some hagon shocks already fitted. Admittedly it's hard to see on that image taken in my dingy garage. I was being lazy with the photo. It meant moving a lot of stuff to get the bike outside.

    As for the hard ride, I haven't ridden the bike with the new seat yet. Just feels hard with the sit on it indoors and make vroom vroom noises test. :)

    I got my seat off fleabay for £100 from a guy who bought a scrambler but needed a pillion seat. :)

    Don't worry about the firm feel, mine is very comfortable.

    Looks good, I really wish they did this for the T120. :(
