Lovin' your ingenuity 3bangin'!  That weld on your GPS mount looks like pure art.

And when I saw the pic of the lights in your luggage lids, I immediately thought of that railway crossing movie scene in 'Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind'...

Top work Sir!  And I do like the red of your Tiger, not seen one here in Oz yet.

This is the 8th Triumph so far, so.....the learning curve was done long ago.  :156:

Thanks Herdygerdy, but......there is no weld on the mount. It's a piece of 2"x2"x1/4" Aluminum angle. I used a cut off wheel and an angle grinder to shape it and sanders to finish it. I do weld aluminum but in this case it wasn't necessary.


I have a background in fabrication and this seemed the easiest solution to the problem.

Great work. Love the lights.
The Red tiger looks really cool. I saw one in the dealers last week and was impressed. The Triumph promotional pics and others Ive seen dont do it justice. Yours are the first pictures Ive seen that accurately reflect the true color.
