Think I saw one on Stage 5 with UK plates  :169:

Visor Down will go with the BMW.

IMO thats highly likely because according to industry stats the RT has been consistantly the best selling tourer for years now.

Best selling doesn't mean "best" of course !  :001:

Can't believe this topic has 32 pages of rumours  :138:

Triumph Trophy - General Chat / Re: lock it or loose it

Straying "off-topic" now  :455:

The question posed was "what do you use to lock your bike?"

Can we get back on track please  :028:


I know the manufacturers can homologate engines with different specifications for 2016 but I didn't realise they were taking it that far  :005:

What you've seen is correct !  Essentially an inverted V design helps to reduce wear (namely ’stepped-wear’ and cupping) on the front tyre when braking. Although it could also be argued that cuppimg only occurs if the front suspension is incorrectly set, the idea of a inverted V design has been found to increase stopping distances especially when the tyre progresses through its wear cycle.

Whatever you do ensure the tyre is fitted according to manufacturers instructions, and don't turn tyres "around" just to achieve the above  :002:
