The bike was great apart from the comfort of the seat and as the Triumph gel seat gets mixed reviews I am going to buy a spare seat and have it modified.

Ha, YD has a good point there, it does get easier with miles, not sure if it's the seat or our ass. I had mine flattened with a gel insert by Tony Archer at Huddersfield, that improved it. Digger seats at Newport did a couple of Corbin style seats for my Sprints, they were full tank comfy.

Did Tony Archer do Kylie Minogue's too?

I had no idea...................  :164:

Butt seriously, I've always found that uncomfortable seats eventually become comfortable, after a few 000 miles.

Then we start over again after a winter layoff.

I try & keep riding through the winter to stop me butt getting too soft, my winter traillie bike has a far worse seat than the TS.

It's similar to how Photobucket was. Store your pics on it to post on forums. No charge.....up to now.

From earlier conversations, I believe you can use the links elsewhere too  :031:

Ok, I'll give it a try. Most of the folk on the Serow forum use Imgur, I followed suit.
