Might I suggest the TS406 might suit a Harley...

John.

Just realised that might be taken seriously..TS422 I think has an overlapping flap at the sides to keep most of the driving rain out and three straps to hold all of the flap down..doesn't look pretty but will probably keep your sox dry.

Good man. Triumph's rule*


*Nothing wrong with Harley's either as all bikes are equal. It's just that Triumph's are more equal than the rest.

I like the old fasioned bikes, cruisers basically, because of the riding position, sportsbikes are build for speed, the wind gets under your chest and supports you while you ride so that all the weight is lifted off your wrists..but then you add speed limits and traffic jams and you take away the essence of a sportsbike so I'm afraid they are not for me..But Harley shaped bikes, the old Kwaks, kettles, and Brit bikes..and of course my old Vmax..they are the bikes for me, comfortable easy riders that can handle a bit of filtering and will get you out of trouble when you need that sudden burst if speed..with the added excitement of knowing that you can still kill yourself if you make a mistake..

John
