Handlebar Risers for T120??
I've got 1500 miles on my T120 so far (3 1/2 months) and I'm still not comfortable with the seat. I even got the "Triumph Comfort Seat" and am using that, but on both that seat and the stock, I'm constantly getting the feeling that I'm sliding forward. It's fine at freeway speeds, but 80% of my driving is on side streets commuting to work, and there I have to keep gripping the tank with my knees to keep from sliding forward. I think I'll try the king-and-queen seat next. But I also had another idea...
On my 2007 I put on 1-in handlebar risers and found it much more comfortable. I'm wondering if I need to do the same thing on the T120. So questions:
1) Does anyone make handlebar risers for the water cooled bikes yet? NewBonneville and British Customs don't have them. I didn't see them on the Triumph accessories site.
2) If someone does make them, has anyone here installed them? I'm wondering if the cables are long enough to just stretch (they were on my 2007 Bonnie) or if I somehow have to get longer cables...
Thanks for any insights!
