For what you needed a bike for nothing better,just hope I don’t have to wait too many years for Triumph to produce what I want.

ECU and Fuel Injection / Re: london ulez zone.

So two weeks in and have put on just under a thousand miles (more than double the original owner managed in two years!), still loving the bike :icon_lol:.  Henceforth Rain Mode shall be known as Commuter Mode, it's ideal for the London commute as it takes the edge off the FBW throttle. I am getting just under 55 mpg, need to fill up at 175 miles but pretty sure I could push it to 200 if I needed to. This is really good compared to the Girly which was giving low 40's mpg.

Very quick and smooth, brakes excellent, a joy to ride. The lower centre of gravity feels good. Only changes so far are a Triumph rack with the Givi plate for the Explorer so that I can get my top box on as panniers are a no no for commuting. Easy to fit and dosent seem to affect handling.

New tyres are on the horizon (as mentioned by Tim, the OEMs are not the most confidence inspiring) as is possibly the comfort seat. The standard seat is not the most comfortable, absolutely fine for 1 or 2 hour rides but I can see it being hard work for longer. I will however give it a while longer to see if it a. softens up or b. I just get used to it before I spend any cash.

Only other investment is likely to be a new satnav, I use my phone quite a bit and its ok in a ram mount but I would quite like a purpose built one for touring with the phone as a back up. Considering the TomTom 550 as a change from my usual Garmins.

PS I know this is probably the wrong place for this post but couldn't be bothered to start another thread!

Quite a list:
- Separate/boltable rear subframe (won't write off the bike with a hit to the pillion peg frame);
- Tubeless wire wheels/XC - from the Scrambler 1200;
- Slipper clutch - from the Street Triple;
- Euro 5 compliant;
- Increased capacity - barrels from 675 - 855 cc?
- Suspension - Showa front, WP rear;l
- Brakes - Brembo;
-TFT Dash.

Should be interesting.......

Hopefully the Moto2 connection is going to take Triumph to great heights and I remain optimistic for the future and new bikes.

Like the tubeless rims on this new 900 as well :icon_wink:

When they do a 1300(at least) with 17” wheels count me in and i’ll Pay up front  :icon_lol: because with a garage full the one thing I have learned over the years my soul is in a 3 cylinder engine.
