My TEX just keeps on amazing me
I have a bit over 900 miles on the bike now. I added Triumph hard bags, fog lights, roll bag, soft top bag and a ram mount for my Garmin Zumo 550 GPS.....When I filled it with gas today, I calculated 50.1 mpg to my last tank, pretty good for a 1200 triple. I had the bike off road for about 30 miles for the first time and it handled so much better than I thought such a big bike would in the dirt....The engine seems to be running smoother now that it has had a proper break in. . the shift is silky smooth esp compared to that on my big touring bike. The only problem with the bike I had was when I managed to drop it right after buying it and broke of the end of the brake lever. rather than spend 80 bucks for a new brake lever I just snapped the sacrificial end off of the clutch lever so I have two shorter levers. Looking forward to a 2k trip up into the mountains next month.
