    That’s a pretty sweet bike. But yeh it’s honestly a scrambler thing. I’ve always wanted one. Kinda go back and forth between the triumph and the ducatis. Stumbled onto a BMW r9t urban gs and considered that for a bit. It got sold why I was in Seattle though. This Triumph just kinda looks like it may turn out to be a good deal and the ergonomics fit me pretty good. Kind of a barn find at a dealership. Seems like it’s been sitting in the back somewhere and they just forgot somebody traded it in.

    Oops! That was a misquote. I originally was going to comment on the HD but didn't really have anything intelligent to say, so I kept scrolling. My AT statement was in response to the several owned by guys in here, but I guess I didn't delete the draft from originally quoting on the HD, so it got pasted in there out of context. Edited original post for clarity. :)

    About 14k miles. Haven't had to replace the rad yet but since I've owned it (since 7k) I've had extra support between the frame and tank and only use safety wire for the side fairing/rad mount. Hoping I can make this rad last ... I already have one in stock as a spare.

    Indy. Center of the universe for the next several days. We are the epicenter of the Eclipse on Monday, and man, shit's gettin' wierd. Authorities stopped by where my GF works, director of a day care center with 300 students. Asked them to be closed for the day. All hotels have been booked for weeks. They're telling people to plan to stay in place.

    Seems very strange to me. But, what do I know?

    I didn't realize it was a common problem until mine started leaking near the top right mount. I put a new radiator in and want to get the original repaired so I have a spare on the shelf. I should do the same as you did adding extra tank support, saw a video that describes the issue/fix pretty well

    50s this week, high 50s/60s this weekend, next week mid 70s - no rain. DC area

    Got a weird question..

    HJC DS-X1 helmet is $180-$220, weighs 3.74lbs. Link
    Klim Krios Pro helmet is $750, weighs 3.4lbs. Link
    Arai XD-5 helmet is $840+, weighs 3.79lbs. Link


    Why would I pay $600+ for a heavier helmet than the HJC? just for the name/bragging rights? Color?
