    Got the Matt black Trident. Part exchanged my Ducati Multistrada 1200. The Trident weighs about 20 bags of spuds less so thatís a big deal when your in your mid 70s. TecBike are supplying lower foot pegs which will suit my creaky bones. I see a centre stand is made by T Rex of America. I may try to buy that.

    Greetings RichardP,
    I had a 2010 Multistrada 1200 a couple of years back and now have the matt black 660, -not as tall and I prefer the triple engine.

    I bought a Sachs 650 while I waited for delivery of the Trident. Seemed like a different type of bike and the lunging big Suzuki single has a certain appeal but I think Iíll sell it now. One of the reasons I bought it was because despite being 20 years old it had only covered 2k miles. It had been owned by a Gold Wing owner who went off it so he stuck it under a carpet for 16 years. I resurrected it but itís time to say goodbye. Itíll go on sale in the next week or so. I might place it in Old Bike Mart. It was an oddball choice but a good one too.

    Hello Richard, congratulations on your Trident. Hope you are enjoying it. I was wondering whether you could get the centre stand from T-rex? I am getting my Trident next week and feel that the centre stand is a practical need.
