... I felt she has felt a bit slippy on the wet tarmac, also noticed condensation in the headlights.

Hi and :401:

I'm going to guess your bike has Metzeler Tourance Next tyres on it? Plenty of negative feedback in the tyre section if they are. Take it easy and when renewal time comes there is definitely better available.
I get constant condensation in my 4 indicators as bike kept outdoors uncovered but no issue with headlight, however (lights) as something that isn't sealed and subject to heat/cold cycles I accept it, but if they are prepared to change the unit out all credit to them.  :028:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Welcome to you as well...
get rid of the top box, looks like a fridge, way too heavy and has more impact on riding than the panniers...
Life is too short to drink bad wine or to ride bad bikes.

Derchef1962 is right. A much better option is the soft Triumph Adventure Tail Bag, holds just as much and includes a waterproof cover for bad weather.  Try the Wanted Section for seconhand.  :152:

This is in For Sale, but may be sold, doesn't say.

Hi and welcome, new member here as well, same bike.
This is a tough crowd, "lose the panniers", "get rid of the box"... Enjoy the bike, it's really nice! Ride safe.
