    1200 km no problems to report

    Hi

    Well I have done I think 1200km on the Triumph now and very happy with it, no problems to report.
    I had a good play around with the display/bike set up etc I thought it looked a bit complicated? to start with but once I actually got into it found it very simple :033:

    For a  bike of what 300kg plus etc it does an excellent job of "hiding" the weight, especially when just stationary when maneuvering bike around etc, I found on the R1200Rt I felt the weight , felt like a heavy bike when stationary.

    I took my son for a ride couple of days ago for his birthday (lunch) and he loves the Triumph very comfy he reckons.
    Made a quick video   




    Anyways great site this lots of information  :169:

    Cheers
    Clarky

    Very pretty there but freaks me out driving on the "wrong" side of the road. Almost was stationed in Christ Church many years ago and sad it didn't happen. Hope you son had a happy birthday.

    LOL yea did you see the large arrows painted on the road in the video to remind the tourists which side of the road to be on.
    We do have to dodge them now and again LOL.

    I was in America well over twenty years ago now and we hired a car, I remember having to think before pulling out on to the road am I on the right side or wrong side but the steering wheel on the left helped me out.

    I wonder if being on a bike it would be easier to make that mistake ?? :084:

    A different take on the old saying, happy wife, happy life. Clarky, yours will have to be, happy son, happy life. Good video of some great roads. :821: :158:

    What are those LED's just in front of you key .

    The LED's are hooked up to the Mr plod detector, super bright for visual warning although if the sun is at the right "angle of the dangle" they do get harder to see.

    They do have a Bluetooth set up as well you can get for the TPX radar but happy as is.

    Cheers :152:
