Hello from Delaware USA

Hey All,

I'm a first time Triumph owner and proud to have chosen my 99 TBS as a lil' gift for myself for graduating this past May. about 2k miles later, I'm looking to customize the bike over the winter but still want to ride through the winter.

It's SNOWING OUTSIDE right now! I only have light riding gear and the cost of modifying looks like I'll be doing a piece at a time.

Soo....I'm open to suggestions, as I think your experiences here may save my wallet in the long-run.

Aside from some leathers (jacket and gloves, and I'm curious as to the benifits to a plug-in jacket), here's what I want to do to the bike:

fender eliminator
solo seat with cafe-end look
possible clip-on handles
and the ultimate goal would be pipes on both sides...I love that look.

Anyways, here's some pics if I can make it happen (again*first time poster!)
