    The tee dub is frickin' SLOW. Ancient technology. Even moreso than the DR650.

    Am I the only one who noticed both members using this forum ended up with 890 adv-r’s?

    I considered the 890 but read taller riders may feel cramped

    I rode the T dub. I felt the fat tire thing made it sucky turning on pavement. I understand small bike fanboi, but enjoyed XR's far more than a TW.

    colin and clayton better go on a ride together now

    Little , but since all the ADVers are here, thinking about picking up a set of Aux lights for the 690 duke, what's better than chinese noc-off but not $1k per light?

    Street riding, looking for additional distance/brightness.

    I put Denali lights on mine. I'm happy with them and how they integrated. Mine are setup to run at 50% until I hit high-beams, then full 100%

    I’ve tried a handful of $20-60 Amazon lights, I’ll go through my orders and make a post with some links later.

    Can you post a pic of your bike? I canít zoom in enough on your avatar and wanna see that fly screen

    Do you have the low seat? If so how different is it?

    I’ve got the standard seat, pretty happy with it.

    This is the standard Dart flyscreen, I also have the smaller Dart Piranha which I didn’t like as much. This one I can do interstate and while its not exactly fun I can tolerate it for a few hours if I have to. They make a larger one that I don’t have any experience with.

    Very similar shape and size to the Triumph flyscreen, but you don’t have to take the headlight off and squeeze your hands in below the gauges to mount it.

    Re: Thinking about dual sport/ ADV bike

    I highly recommend replacing the Triumph hand guards with barkbusters if you plan to go off-road. The stock ones look nice but will snap easily and the levers mount at the same point, if I remember, potentially leaving you stranded.

    Good call on the Dart, such an easy install. I can’t imagine trying to get behind the head lamp.

    I wanted clear, was impatient and settle on “petrol blue”, it came in a box labeled Petrol Blue, but contained a clear screen!

    Is that the Dart Marlin? How do you like it?

    I had to get in behind the headlight to install the accessory power socket. You need either tiny hands or lots of socket extensions to do the job. Simple, but a pain in the ass.

    Yup, dart Marlin. Haven’t tried it out, day six after testing positive for Covid, have some symptoms.

    Re: Thinking about dual sport/ ADV bike

    Once again reminded myself why DS/ADV bikes are the best. Did a 3 day ride through the PA Wilds, 1/2 of which was the MABDR. What a phenomenal time with surprisingly great weather, what was looking like a wet weekend turned out to be fantastic with only a passing shower Saturday and Sunday. We even got an entire state park campground to ourselves Sunday night, with hot showers and flushing toilets.
