    Triumph Dynamic Luggage System ( TDLS )

    Have you ever wondered how the Triumph Dynamic Luggage System ( TDLS ) actually works ?

    I did, and then found a video which explains the principle ......

    The video only refers to the Side Panniers, but the principle has also been incorprated
    into the Trophy Top Box - where the "Sliding Carriage" ( on which the top box is mounted ),
    can slide from side to side slightly - up to about 10mm ( just under 1/2 inch ),
    thus detaching the bulk of the mass from the motorcycle frame, and enhancing stability.

    Well thats fantastic.  Thanks for sharing that, I too was curious about the system.

    I would like to point out that those guys were driving on the wrong side of the road though!  :001:

    Thanks Coconut. Interesting. It could be a bit like statistics though - can be made to prove anything. I have had fixed luggage on Goldwings, RT's, an LT and a Pan-European (supposedly prone to instability at speed) and I have never had a problem  I'd imagine any of those manufacturers could produce a video demonstrating the danger of an unsecured mass!  Unless it is actually a proven scientific fact, I'd trade the fancy system for panniers set tighter into the bike for reduced overall width and a top box without the extra carrier for reduced height - if I had a choice. In my opinion both would actually aid stability by concentrating the masses - maybe even more so than the dynamic system.

    The motion can be adjusted out of the system to make them static.  The linking rod between them adjusts the amount of sway allowed.

    Yes, but that wouldn't achieve any advantage as it wouldn't reduce the overall width or height.

    The ST1100 has floppy saddlebags which look a bit odd, but perhaps it is deliberate as per the Trophy system?
