Great idea Tralex :047:!  I've been thinking about doing the same thing to pick up some additional storage space under the pillion seat.  So, why couldn't those apparently unnecessary plastic walls, that don't appear to serve much of a purpose other that get in the way, be removed I asked myself?  Now your timely post has confirmed the modification that I was considering.

Once removed, as you have done, I should be able to arrange and store enough gear and on the road maintenance equipment (tire repair kit, air pump, tool kit, jumper cables, flashlight, etc.) to allow me to leave the side and top cases at home unless I'm on more than a day ride.  Also, if you need to store something in more of a waterproof environment, you can remove the plastic storage tray (under the driver's seat and above the radio unit) which opens up a considerable amount of additional space in this area.

So, looks like I need to breakout the Dremel and get busy on this project!  :821:

Thanks guys for all the greetings!  Yes, I agree the TTSE is a great bike and I have finally got mine farkled up the way I want it.  Plus, just got a new set of Michelin PR4GT's mounted up yesterday.  Hope they are as good as everybody says they are!

About the Twisted Trophies get together in the Robbinsville area.  Yes, this of one of the areas I ride all the time and I'm sure you guys will enjoy it a lot!  However, we go to Hilton Head during September and we are planning on going this year too.  But, if something happens that would prevent us from going this year (ie Covid shutdowns, etc.) I would like to come over and ride with you all for a day or two.  Will let you know if we don't go to HHI this year.

I got mine in 3 days from Spain to Knoxville, TN.  FedEx was the delivering carrier here in the US.  Seem to remember mine were routed through London, UK in route to USA.  I used a faster (ie. more expensive) mode of transportation as was my choice based on the alternatives offered by Tralex.  Don't think you should be worried about anything where Tralex is involved.  I found him to be a totally honest and dependable person to deal with during the whole transaction with him.

My Freecom is a 4 and not a 4+.  My wife and son's units are Freecom4 too.  Wife (pillion) is paired as "Rider A"  and son is "Rider B" when we all ride together.

I/we have had no trouble with our units coming out of their mounting cradles by mistake.  You must take care when attaching your unit to the mount that you hear and feel the little "snap" sound/feel in order to make sure it is securely attached.

Yeah, some of my riding buddies are now using the Packtalk Bold and they are really liking them a lot.

Thanks again digital for getting in touch with Tralex for me.  He contacted me overnight by PM and we are working everything out via email.  He's going to get them shipped out for me next week so all is good! :028:

I really do appreciate your assistance and helping me out with this project!!

Has anyone heard from or communicated with Tralex in the last few days?  I PM'd him yesterday to see if I could purchase a set of front and rear crash bars for my Trophy and have not heard anything back from him yet.  I don't want to buy a set of R&G Adventure bars until I hear something from Tralex.  Anyone have any experience with how long it took him to contact you back with purchase info?


Oh yeah, forgot to mention the smart phone app use with the Freecoms.  I do use the Cardo app to make changes on my Freecom units.  The app is quite easy to use if you need to make changes or adjustments with anything.  You will need to hook the unit up to your laptop or computer to make any firmware updates, and, you can also use this method if you prefer to make changes like you can also make using the app.
