    Hi everyone, traded in my triumph tiger explorer with 40,000 on the clock
    for a brand new trophy se. Put 108 miles on in 90 degree 70% humidity.
    Stuck in traffic, the bike was throwing a lot of heat. On the go, everything
    was just fine. Does anyone have any suggestions for driving lights?
    If you're ever in Chicago, drinks are on me. Everyone else please enjoy
    your virtual beverage!  I think I'm really going to enjoy this scoot!
    Heading to Newfoundland August 15.

    I had motolights on one of my LT's. That was 15 years ago. Maybe I'll
    give them a try.

    Welcome triumphted,  to answer your question about driving lights, there was a thread on that but I don't remember when.  If you do search on "driving lights" using the forum search engine I am sure it will show up.  Enjoy the new bike.  Headed for a 10 day ride from PA to New England states tour Sept. 1st.  Had New Foundland on the agenda but not enough time so we nixed it for another year.    Maybe when you return you could give us a rundown on your trip along with some tips.

    Hi Ted and welcome :400: A great choice. Yes in slow or stationery traffic the weather protection can be too good in high temps! but thats not usually a problem we have here in the UK LOL

    Also search for auxiliary lights. There are several places people have touted them. Under the headlight (My choice), on the brake callipers, on R&G crash bars, under the mirror pods.
