    Hi All:

    I have to first thank all of you for your diligent and helpful info.  Your Forum helped convince me to purchase a used (6,300 miles) 2013 TTSE.  Without all the great info and discussions, I would most likely stayed with BMW and purchased a used R 1200RT at twice the price :-(.  I own 5 bikes: Honda ST1300 - Buell Thunderbolt - Yamaha XS1100 Special  (have had it since new) - 1978 750F Custom Cafe and sold the BMW K1200LT to purchase the TTSE with tourpak and tank bag (man that tank bag is huge ;-).

      I am now in the process of setting up the TTSE with a double relay for GPS, and aftermarket grip heaters, crash bars and highway pegs.  My TTSE has the grip heater switch but no heaters installed and at $585.00 for OEM installation, I decided to go aftermarket. 

    I live in MN so far I only have about 800 miles on this since I purchase one weeks ago.  I really like the handling and the motor sound has a nice soul.  I can't wait to get it out on a long tour which will happen the first week in May.

    Cheers to you ALL!

     :400: to the forum.  You can buy the grip heat kit from one of the online parts houses for around $250 and install them yourself in about 1-1/2 hrs. if you take your time.  Good instructions in a thread on the forum about it.  I did mine and the only caveat I can tell you is that your 2013 MAY NOT HAVE THE SHORTING LINK described in the instructions.  In that case they will work, but the icon won't appear on the display until you have a dealer go into the menus and activate it in your bikes system.  Some may have trouble finding where it is, because they think it should have the shorting link, but I can assure they all do not have it.  If you do have the shorting link wiring, it's plug and play and the display works right off the bat.  You can pick up a relay trigger out of one of the fuse boxes that has a circuit that is only activated with the engine running and that will eliminate any battery drain.  I've got two 2.1A waterproof USB ports for power up at the front of the tank wired that way, and also a couple of 12V Coax panel mounts for heated gear for rider and passenger.  Enjoy the ride!

    I, owned a 1979 XS1100 from new, and put over 50,000 miles on it in five years before I sold it. Great bike!

    Depending on where you live in Minnesota, we may be able to do some riding at some point. I have contacted the other Forum Members in the Eastern part of the State about a possible meet and greet some time this Spring.

    Prices have gone up since I bought mine, but here is where I purchased it from.  Easy to install.  No affiliation.
