    Hi Guys

    I was out on Sunday performing Motorcycle marshall duties and a mate took this photo. Is it his camera or the angle it was taken at  :187: but does the TT look wide to you  :084:
    It wasn't me !!

    I think it is just the fact that you have been caught at an off angle..

    My friend that rides a Concours noted the very first time we met out on the road after we stopped for a water break that the Trophy looked WIDE compared to his Kaw.  Then again, until my recent flat experience out on the road in the Texas heat afternoon with him, he never put his luggage on for day trip rides.  I think that attitude has changed now.

    I don't think anyone would describe the Trophy as "Slim" !

    Great Photo though  :028:

    With Panniers fitted, the Trophy is 975 mm (38.3in) wide  :169:

    I posted this one of me on a similar event on fB and there were many comments about 'Wide Load' but aimed more at me than my TTSE!

    I give my self solace in the fact I am a big bloke on a big blokes bike!

    Love, light and kindness,
