Thumbs up Brought my new TEX home today

All I can say is WOW! Really liking the way this bike performs. Another great triple from Triumph.

First Triumph I owned that I didn't immediately want to throw away stock seat and windscreen. Adjusted windscreen and no buffeting issues so far. Seat is not bad. Going to ride it awhile before deciding if change needed Still working on using the computer. Need to tweak the suspension a little and that's about it.

Got my sw mototech crash bars on order. Need to add on some fender extensions and driving lights. Panniers, looking hard at jesses. Looking forward to putting some miles on this bike

Randy

Best of luck with the bike!

I'm debating what to treat myself with on my 50th B'Day (June '14). It's down to a TeX or the new 1190 Adventure coming from KTM. Plenty of time to mull it over.

I bet the new bike is like a breath of fresh air when compared to the 955. So many modern changes!

Congratulations Randy! I just missed you at Haps yesterday. I was there for the 500 mile service on my Tiger 800 and saw David Bixler prepping your bike. Great looking bike! I left at 9:30, had to get back to Tampa.

I'm considering Jesse bags as well and a Russell Day Long seat. The stock's not bad but the Russell is so much better!

Let's do a ride soon!

Got my TEX in November and already have 5000ks on it.

Hi

Welcome to the club, I love my TEX.

5000k's in and I believe a seat change to the comfort seat is needed. would definitely take it out for a ride at night before putting up for the extra lights. I was going to get them, but doubt I will.
