Figured we needed a new thread for those of us with the SS to show off our bikes! (Especially now that most of us have had them long enough to tweak and personalize them)

Post em up people -

( I gotta go and take a few myself)

Getting There

I have a Retro Tail Harness and some Watsen Design LED indicators from Analog Motorcycles to add this coming weekend, but here's mine so far. I have two more pictures of the guards on the front after this.

Triumph flyscreen, engine bars, and the Fox Performance RSU with piggybacks.
CRG bar-end mirrors
Evotech Rectifier and Radiator Guards

I sanded off and have put several coats on the side cover to get rid of that ugly Street Scrambler logo. I have a local guy doing my Scottish clan's coat of arms on an aluminum number plate to bolt into the cover whenever he gets it done.

Still looking into headlight guards and a proper bash plate to switch out the plastic one.

I've been seriously considering the Analog retro light kit and Watsens for up front. Please post pics when you've got it installed. Would love to see what yours looks like.

I also sprayed out the side cover to get rid of the Street Scrambler graphic. Thinking of doing it on the exhaust side too, but that side doesn't bother me nearly as much.

That looks awesome! Is that the Analog retro kit? What did you do about your front turn signals?

Thank you!

Yes! its the Analog kit, I ended up extending the cable slot forward in the black ABS splash guard by 1/3" for less pinch, I'm really happy with it.

I've got a rack on order for a street twin, once that arrives ill put the +1 seat back on, hoping it mounts up on the SS.

No plans yet for front lights, but ill keep my eyes peeled for inspiration. What have others done?

Also why on earth is there no helmet loop under the seat? Would the bigger bonneville shock mounted helmet lock work on the SS left side?

Looks great. Your pics might have convinced me to go with the same kit in the back. Any other pics of the finished product from any different angles?
Also, did you have any issues with the computer allowing for both LED in the back and regular lights up front?

I know that Analog developed the Watsen LED indicators (http://www.analogmotorcycles.com/shop/triumph-street-twin-led-turn-signals-watsen-design-st-indicators/) for up front, that are supposed to be plug and play and look pretty sleek. I wanted a plug and play option, and was hoping that the Motogadget m-blaze pins would fit to keep things consistent between the front and back, but apparently they would require a bit more work so I'm holding off. It's only a matter of time til someone makes them plug and play for us novices.

Analog Kits

I got my Watsen Design front indicators and the retro tail light kit installed today. The fronts were super easy to install, the tail light assembly took a little more work in terms of routing and splicing in a plate light to the tail light. We were so concerned about getting the plate light installed we forgot to tighten up the T30 screws to the fender and I lost some of the hardware on the ride home lol. Went to Ace Hardware and replaced the washers and locking nuts, loosened the plate back out and got everything screwed in.

Everything looks great now, lights are nice and bright, very clean profile. Everything was plug and play, I didn't have to go in to the settings and change anything. They flash a little fast, so maybe it would slow the flash a little if you switched to the LED setting? I stopped off and had a buddy take a few nice photos for me, he should be sending those to me this evening and I will get them uploaded for you fine folks.

The Album

My buddy had to shoot a wedding after and accidentally deleted the pictures so we took some fresh ones this morning while I was testing out my gear layout for a trip next weekend. They are pretty high quality photos and there are quite a few so I'm going to link to the photo album on facebook. If you can't see them or the site disallows outside links I will find another way to get them here. Just reply and let me know if there's any issues.

I think this is everything so far:
-Watsen Design LED front indicators
-Analog Motorcycles Retro Tail Light package with mblaze rear indicators/ Custom Dynamics LED plate lights
-Evotech Performance Rectifier and Radiator Guards
- Triumph flyscreen, engine bars, adjustable levers, CNC machined brake cylinder, head bolt covers
-CRG Lanesplitter mirror
-Fox Performance adjustable rear suspension
-Wilder Factory tank strap

Your bike looks amazing. Well done!
Can you give a brief review of the Watsen indicators? My biggest concern would be the visibility from the side (i.e., changing lanes, will someone see the indicators?).

Watsen Design Indicators

A review of the front indicators for BonnieBlack:

I think they are highly visible! I've had some folks stand off to the side while activating them and they seem to throw off enough light to the sides. If you install and aren't happy with the output at that angle, you could push them out the sides no problem. Until you tighten them back up they can freely spin around on the fork tubes. I was actually thinking of angling mine out just a touch more for this same reason.

The Retro Tail Light Harness gave me more of a problem in regards to license plate light setup. As I mentioned before, I added those LED bolts so it's DOT compliant and they kept shaking loose/ they were also backed right up to the fender so there wasn't much room to get them tightened down well. I didn't want to pull out all the splicing I had done so I loosened them out as much as I could to get behind the license plate. I took some nylon washers and cut them to get them on, and used them as spacers between the plate and the bracket. A little Threadlock and voila! No more shaking loose.

Tailbag

Bike looks great. What tailbag is that?
That big bag in the album is actually a backpack/drybag from Our Caste. I heard they were going out of business, but it looks like their website is still up. It's called the "Jacque in Black," I think it's like a 30L pack. My shakedown ride with full gear for a week sat nicely on the tail and I had about 5-6 inches of room away from the high pipes
Here's the company page: https://ourcaste.com/shop/accessories/jacque-black/

If you are referring to the smaller bag in the first picture I uploaded, that's my dedicated tailbag for daily riding. It's from a company called Burly; I got it off Revzilla. Waxed canvas and magnets if you wanna hook it up to the tank instead. Also has a handy little plastic sleeve magnetized to the top you can slip a phone or map in that you can attach to the tank with or without the bag. I'm using Rok straps to hold all my bags down on the little OEM rack and it's working great so far.

Thanks...definitely familiar with Burly from my "HD days".

My Scrambler nice and cleaned up...

Attached a pic of my Scrambler. Next mod is going to be the de-cat from TEC once it's available. There's a few more pictures in the garage.
