New Triumph Owner - Gloucester County
« on: August 18, 2014, 02:44:56 PM »
Hello all,

     Just picked up my Matte Grey 2014 Street Triple R Saturday.  My old body couldn't stand riding the sport bikes for more than an hour.  This thing is a welcome comfort.  Hope to get out and meet with you guys sometime.

Wow!  Nice ride Wastegate - I like the color combo a lot.  Just be careful keeping that matte paint clean, it's a bitch.

Welcome to our forum, be sure to check out all the newbie posts and such and you'll get a good idea of what our little group is about.

Keep an eye on the Events and Short Notice Rides boards, and I hope to see you out on a ride soon!

Ordered my Mustard Bikes Tidy tail, and Techspec snakeskins.
Anybody have an idea how long promotion products take to get from Triumph,  bellypan, windscreen, and cowl cover?

Depends on whether they are in stock at the Atlanta warehouse.  If so, should just be a few days.   If not...      :-\

I would have to check the individual part numbers. Program parts such as those have been taking 1-2 weeks. The promotion has been more successful than anticipated and we have had to wait up to 6 weeks for a couple items. Of course we try to keep as much in stock as possible at Xtreme, but when you get to the 3rd or 4th package, you have to rely on the supply chain through Triumph.

Thanks for the responses.

I should probably start a new thread.  ;D

Are the factory Triumph sliders decent or is it worth it to spend the extra money for the GB Racing gear?

I haven't seen any GB sliders for your bike but the ones I have seen seem pretty similar to the industry norm. The Triumph piece is nice in that it has two mounting points and affords a larger area of protection and supports the bike better.
