New sprint st owner

Picked up our 07 Sprint ST 2 1/2 months ago, finally ready to activate this account and start asking questions!

Triumph top boxes are expensive, mine is getting returned tomorrow in favor of a Givi. They look cooler and they're much cheaper.

Welcome and a great choice of bike, the 1050 ST is still my favourite bike.

On mine I fitted the SWMotech pannier and top box mounts, the pannier mounts were three brackets to which a frame was fitted in about five seconds then panniers fixed. When the panniers were off the bike these looked far better than all the scaffolding poles that the Triumph system has.

The only things I did not like was the hot blast from the engine on the left leg due to a faring seal that refused to stay in position and the dire headlights.

Also a Sprint ST '07 owner, first season with it.
I opted also for a Givi top box. Cheaper, better
looking and more volume. To bad have to have
a seccont key for it, but is great, easy to instal,
and quikly removed.
