    Dear forum members and crash bars users.

    Does anyone have experience with mounting highway pegs on their Trophy, or on the Tralex bars?
    I use my TT only for holiday-use. After riding long days, my knees became painful. I have to stretch! So perhaps this combination is perfect for me!

    Looking forward to your replay.

    I installed front bars, pannier bars and the racks for the pannier top.

    That is a good, very complete kit. That German saying, it seems real since that Kit is as if it had been manufactured in the Triumph factory. Honestly, I am very happy that it is so.

    On the other hand, the supports that go on top of the saddlebags are ideal and I still have my questions about how Tralex had that great idea to make them. They fit with absolute precision, and best of all, you can open the saddlebag doors without touching the luggage on top of the saddlebags.

    Of course, given my experience during the trip to Turkey, the best way to hold the luggage on top of the saddlebags is to use grip tapes as thin and small as possible. In the photo I think you can appreciate them.

    Ideally, cover the bags with a waterproof cover and if it is reflective, all the better.

    I think I have seen photos of members of this forum who posted a photo. I do not know exactly if it was in Tralex protection rods or others, but it leaves that possibility, it does not matter some protection bars or others.

    @ Michael,

    Hi jaapvanthoff,
    https://www.ebay.de/itm/363465874862 is what i chose.
    I hope the harness-kit included reduces my stress with my limited electrical knowledge. The switch is small and handy.
    A collegue has them on his bike, and he is quite happy. Also they comply with german regulations.
    There are million kits out there, but i do not see a reason for buy a set for 500, unless there is a hard proof they are much better than any other.

    @Digital:
    Yes, looks good.
    I have a rubber net I use for attaching the rain gear, since i do not want to spend too much time packing it properly on the side of the road.
    Lazy people out there...  :745:


    Kind regards
    Michael

    Uff !!! If English seems complicated to me.

    Nothing, once you have that pair of fog lights, I can help you install them. First, put the relay and removable connectors that are prepared so that no water enters them.

    I have them installed under the tray where the room temperature sensor is located.

    In the Tralex protection bars they fit me well, but here in Spain they are prohibited and under the tray that I mention. They are much more discreet and are protected in the event of a crash.
