After a break of approximately 12 years, I'm back on a Triumph having previously ridden a Sprint RS

Just purchased a 2017 Thruxton R with 3 650km on the clock which has the following extras:
  • Sump Guard
  • Fender Eliminator Kit (not sure which make)
  • Fly Screen
  • Clear indicator lenses

Planning on the following:
  • Dual seat
  • Passenger pegs
  • X-pipe
  • Slip-on tail pipes (not sure which ones but leaning towards Cone Engineering)

Also looking at changing the colour and getting it sprayed in Competition Green.

Welcome to T-Rat! Very cool. Looks like u scored a super clean TTR, lucky U! Without the cat the Cones sound great and so do BC Predator pro shortys too in that slip on style.
I like all the TTR colors for sure especially the competition green but Another concept thought of the paint color to think about ” Racing Yellow”.
Triumph had a couple of earlier years of the 900 Thruxton in the racing yellow with the checker flag center stripe I almost bought one i really like that color scheme, I am surprised they didn’t sell the TTR in the Racing Yellow.
Especially if u really liked your Yellow Sprint RS u might like your TTR in Racing Yellow….FTG

Thanks for the welcome.

@FTG, you've given me something to ponder with the Racing Yellow. I've always loved a metallic BRG and think this would look superb on the TTR.
