Have you thought of becoming the Triumph reliability engineer / test rider?

No need to test new models in ice and desert conditions when they've got you commuting in the east Midlands in all weathers (lol)

Tail tidy.
Think a smaller plate would then look better.

Any advice on what size? Don't want to take piss too much. But do want something smaller

Go for the next size down. I think it's 8x5. You'll get pulled off it's any smaller than that.

They are. That's why I want it smaller. But not be so daft to get pulled all the time

Nope QS not standard on speed. Wasn't fussed at first. But all the reviews rave about it. Especially the down shift.

Heated grips... Think yours would be different to mine but can check
