    I upgraded to a "Stage 2" on my 2024 Street Glide a couple of weeks ago: new H-D Screamin' Eagle air cleaner, cam, and tuner, and an S & S full exhaust system. I've put several hundred miles on the bike since then and am very happy with the changes. :)

    Once again it was time to change to new tyres. Yesterday I did a "cool" 400 km tour to get them after work. Temperatures in the morning -1 degree celsius and about 10 in the late afternoon. I switched again to Continental Road Attack 4, my beloved tyres. The old one, Michelin Road 5 lastet really good until 8.000 km. After that they lost their performance from kilometer to kilometer. Therefore I changed them now at 8.800 km. They would have lasted even more, but I didn't feel comfortable and save while riding my bike.
    To dismantle the rear one my mechanic had to take off the pipe too.
    Now I am really happy! ☺️

    I have a Lexin P4. Very similar and a really good thing to have around/in a pannier.

    That's a neat looking unit powered by it's own battery I presume? I have a pump that's a bit bigger than that which connects to the car/bike battery and I always take it with me when out on the ZZR along with a tyre plug kit. The new 1200 Scrambler has tubeless tyres as opposed to the tubes on the Street Scrambler so it'll be worth carrying the plug kit and a pump. I've changed a tube on a dirt bike before roadside (on open moorland actually:joy:) but doing the same on a 200+kg road bike isn't really an option and recovery is required.

    Yes, rechargeable battery. The extension pipe makes attaching to the valve a doddle. :)

    Bought it an italian friend. Not that i needed another bike but this was just too beautiful to pass. Ducati Monster 1100 EVO, the last of the big aircooled Monsters.

    That's lovely :heart_eyes:. I am not a fan of the new Monsters looks - wise as for me the big trellis frame "makes" the older Monsters, Monsters!!

    I think the new Monsters, 821 & 950, are good looking bikes but you are correct, they do not look like Monsters.

    They are lovely bikes. I had an M1100S before I got my 1200 Thruxton and it was a fantastic bike.

    Was looking for a M1100S also but not one for sale the whole winter here in Sweden. Only 2 EVO:s also. Owners seem to keep them, the water cooled ones are plentiful.

    As I fully expected, after buying a new motorcycle, I've come down with an acute attack of accessoryitis. Some engine bars on their way and this landed today. Heeding the numerous warnings in the instructions, all I need now is a "trained technician of a Triumph dealer" to fit it. Really?
    I'll probably get the engine bars black powder coated as they are only available in bright silver off the shelf.

    Finally got my forth seat for the bobber today. Ordered it on 02/16. Oh well, customs and all that doesn't help either. I ordered the most cushy version of this model but it looks pretty skinny. It was the middle depression in the seat that sold me. Should help stop certain of my bits from getting "sleepy" during rides. :confused: heh
