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!

Thanks for the replies. Have just ordered the Optimate.  Looked (and felt) really cold this morning and I needed the bike so was relieved when it started ok. I don't know why anyone would take a chance on a battery draining in the cold and not buy a charger !

That reminds me - it's cold and as I'm stuck isolating because "covid", time to stick the charger on until I'm allowed out again :(

Have an Oxford Oximiser 3x.  Comes with a fly lead with a water ingress cover you can attach to the terminals and stash away under the seat when not in use.

Does a great job - also have fly leads attached the the old Porsche and Lotus too.

Agree with 3teeth660, been using an Optimate on all my bikes for years, and all the time they're laid up in the winter.

Some will say they've never used battery tenders and never had a problem, all well and good but why chance it..  :027:

That's tough, although the UK running in mileage is down in the manual as 600 miles/6 months so that might help.  I suppose you could always go and test ride the competition, all the bikes you didn't buy so when you get back on the Trident, you'll appreciate all the more.

When I bought mine, fortunately I was told that the service diary was booked up so I had my first service arranged for 10 days or so after I took delivery and then I  had to ride it at every opportunity with that target mileage in mind.  It worked out well, I did three long rides, (long because of the speed restriction too) and I got it to the dealer at 602 miles on the clock.  It was great to be gifted more revs and to use the quickshifter that they fitted at the same time.  It felt like a new bike all over again.

Happy Thanksgiving and I hope the 1st comes around soon for you.

Yes, I've got one Aardvark, although it's the Triumph labelled version, essentially the same though.  I use C-Tek chargers as well.  One thing that has come up, now I am connecting up charge leads and Keis leads, etc to the battery as well, is to have a think about the type of connectors used for the charger fly lead.  Some people have devices such as mini compressors that can also be plugged in to the one lead.  So rather than trying to find adapters or having two or three eyelets to connect to the battery terminals, finding a more universal fly lead can help.

Apart from that, all the Optimate chargers I've used are plug in and forget.
