New 2022 Trident
on: November 24, 2021, 12.10 AM
I purchased my 2022 Sapphire Black Trident last Saturday. The dealer delivered it today. Went for a short, cold rode to verify everything worked. The bar-end mirrors really make it stand out. Completely different look.

I hope it meets your expectation and you enjoy it!

Iíve been out 3 times since delivery. Have 181 on the odo. Everything good, still tight. Running 32 lbs. front and 38 lbs. rear. Ride is much smoother. Next ride Iíll lower the rear to 36 lbs.  The bike feels more secure on the road, less jittery. I notice a tiny bit of surging every now and then, but not going to worry. Just ride and enjoy. I ordered an adjustable clutch lever from Triumph which is OEM on the street triple. Started to install it but canít get enough slack in the clutch cable. Iíll have the dealer install it at the 600 mile service. Not a total fan of the slow throttle when moving off but getting used to it. Praying for a short winter.

I understand what you mean :008:. I think when you get a new bike you are very concerned that you may have made a costly mistake. During the first few miles one tends to look for 'problems' so you are very sensitive to sounds, vibrations, comfort etc. Mostly you identify what is different from your previous bike. After a while you get used to to the differences and begin to enjoy your new bike more.
