It will be interesting to get some comparison between the two bikes in terms of the motor once you gat some break in miles on the III, and eventually bump the shift light closer to the red line of the motor.John Henry
I don't think I've ever seen a bike that clean, even in the showroom.
Have you seen any proof that those race sliders actually hold up to a slide? I have seen many examples of long stem limited mount point sliders bending or breaking on impact. Of course I have to notion of how my Guzzi engine guards will fair in a slide, but I bought them to mount the LED running lights and hope to never go down.
On the matt paint cleaner thing I've used all of them.Todd at GuzziTec has the best by a mile. IIRC it was developed by some guy who does it for Polaris. At any rate, it works much better than the Harley stuff, which I have along with most others. Todd for the win here by a mile.
HA HA - I was joking with Jenn yesterday that this means I need to stop by a Harley dealer to buy whatever they sell to keep matte paint tanks clean lol.
Is there a shopping list for recommended maintenance? Aka how much if each fluid? I've just started digging into the owner's manual and will be looking for a service manual. Thanks in advance.
Nope, thankfully I've not dropped my Stone with the Over Racing sliders - but yes, sliders are generally designed to slide and can shatter during some impacts. So no guarantees, better than nothing, still give us warm and fuzzies as opposed to having nothing. We both prefer the more minimal look/impact of the sliders so hopefully we never find out the hard way.
Bottom line Happy Momma and Happy Moose!
I wash the bikes about once a year. So what I really want is something I can spray on and wipe away a little grime once in a while.Do any of the aforementioned products work well that way?!?
I just use a spray bottle with water and a microfiber cloth. Take the bugs off after a ride.
That said, I already get the impression the V7III is, as my grandfather Aldo used to say "More better".It just feels, looks, seems a little "more" all around.... but the V7III seems to be a improvement of the breed and I'm thrilled to have access to both.
* Found herself obsessed with trying to get the average fuel mileage to max on the way home. Don't think I'll ever match her numbers. But it will be interesting to see how close the gauge is at the next fill-up.
I will say the Street Twin and the Speed Twin were both drop dead gorgeous and I can see someone being VERY happy with either. I really think Triumph upped their "entry level Bonnie" game with the Street Twin it looked and felt like fine bike. I really must find a way to add one to the fleet someday. Jenn was like "Just sell the Sportster" and I was like "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHH H NOOOOOOOOOOO YOU DIDN'T"
