Hello,

got mine one day before the bike arrived at the dealer. Looking at Team Metisse homepage I found out that there is no EG-ABE (paper for the German authorities) for Triumph Trophy available at the moment.
But I will put the hugger at the bike before the first ride... :010:

Cheers,

Tiger-Willi

Likewise, should have hugger just before collecting bike. Will be fitting it as soon as I get the bike home.

Hi there

Firstly, thanks for the pics of the fitted Hugger, can I presume that this is the one from PowerBronze ?

I can't quite see how far it reaches down at the front, does it go far enough down to stop getting road cr*p in and around the 'dirt collection platform' at the base of the Suspension Spring ?

Cheers

Hi,

It is Powerbronze.

I said in one of my other posts that in one of the Gallery pics you can just see the end of the hugger just below the level of the top of the swinging arm.

It would be impossible for any hugger I believe to claim that it keeps all the crud off the parts quoted but I can assure you that it is extremely better than not having one at all. Also you have to take into account what conditions you ride through, some people on here in the wet /flood conditions were riding well up to their axles I believe!!!!

can someone explain to me the benefit of the hugger: does it prevent the rear of the bike to get dirty when riding in poor weather conditions? or is it just for the look?
