Heated grips on the Trophy
« on: September 26, 2013, 09:07:13 AM »
How are the heated grips on the Trophy?I've had Triumph heated grips on my last 2 Triumphs(Sprints)and have found the heated grips poor compared to Oxfords and others.How do Trophy owners like theirs and the heated seats if they have them?

Wouldn't be without either now Iain.
I had Oxfords on my Thunderbird and these Triumph ones are really no different, both work well.
Love the heated seats and so does Sharon. Well worth it if it keeps you riding longer and in comfort.

My first experience with heated grips and seat. I love them. Extends my comfort range. I suspect that once its in the 30'F range that my over pants will be thick and insulated, and my gloves will be much heavier reducing the "heating" affect?

I had the heated seats and grips fitted. The seat is excellent. I rarely have the seat set at max as it burns my B** off!

The grips are fine too but now I have bunny grip covers on (think that is what they are called) I usually have them on at max.

"bunny grip covers"? please, enlighten.  what temps are you riding in. I have not tried max on either, low as been 38'F so far.

I don't use them a lot in Texas :008: but they sure do come in handy in the frozen wastelands do the North :164:

Heated grips without hand protectors are only half the truth, because the wind chill at the back of your hand is the real disturbing factor IMHO. Mine had the grips already fitted.
On the other hand: never again without heated seats  :028:  :192:
