    Greetings! The basics: Street Twin 2017 - Johannesburg South Africa - largely unmodified except for top box and dresser bars - looking for owners' experience with the bike - best accessories and mods - tips regarding maintenance and servicing - ride mostly around town (suburban and semi-rural) on weekends. Looking to go further afield.

    Welcome to the family. That black beauty will go down a treat here in the asylum. Nursey will get a quite night as the inmates ogle that picture.
    Regards & Ride Safe.
    Joe.

    Your bike looks great! I have been thinking about a windshield, luggage rack and panniers. I would like a windshield that is easily removable - almost "snap on/ off" - but the Triumph dealer said that their touring shield needs tools but it is easy to put on/ take off. I also worry about the weight of luggage racks. Did you go for Triump accessories? Thanks a lot!
