    Didn't want to take the bike apart more than once so I installed all the accessories today with the help of the great how to's on this forum.  Thank you to all who took the time to post the steps and photos. 

    Installed the Triumph Fender Extender,
    Skenedesign Photon Blaster Amber run/turn LEDs,
    MondoMoto MM10 LED running lights,
    R&G Engine Guards,
    Triumph GPS mount,
    Garmin Zumo 660 cradle,
    Triumph Heated Grips,
    Triumph Tank Bag

    I also adjusted the levers for better ergonomics.

    I had already installed the Triumph Trunk and skenedesign run/brake LED taillights.

    The bike is now ready for touring.

    Just curious....how long have you had the bike/ridden it before you decided to do this ?

    With me it is the first thing I do - Drop the Levers 3/4" and adjust the Span - even before riding a New Bike away from the Dealer's Showroom...

    I've had the bike for 1000 miles.  I kept playing with the seat height and different pads on the seat.  Plus, I knew I would have to remove the radio controls to adjusted clutch lever, so I waited until I installed the heated grips.

    I don't immediately know what riding position I am going to settle into on a bike.  I have to feel it out, unless something is way off.

    That picture kind of reminds me of the movie "Close Encounters of a Third Kind".     :017:

    Please show a pic of the R&G Bars . . .

    It all looks very bright and extremely visible - without the Headlights ON as well....

    I'm just wondering if perhaps the Indicator (one piddly 10 Watt incandescent bulb at each corner) will be clearly visible or distinguishable when you come to use it, with all those other Hi-Intensity lights surrounding it....

    As the Direction Indicator Flasher Unit is Integral with the Instrument Panel PCB, I doubt it is possible to "Upgrade" the Indicator Bulbs to 21 Watt or even fit LED replacement bulbs....

    If anybody has fitted brighter Indicator bulbs I'd be very interested..

    the additional amber lights are also turn signals and flash in unison with the stock turn signals

    They look good as said even without the headlights on.  Another version might be to turn off the light on the side that is flashing.  I see a lot of cars now do that.
