Hello good people!! I traded in my 2005 Yamaha RoadStar/SpeedStar Silverado for an 07 R3 Classic Tourer last week. It is still on order and I am dying over here!!!! The test ride sold it for me. I loved the looks of it since it came out, but couldn't afford one until recently. I have a few questions, and I hope that I can get some opinions from ya'll, good or bad, they are appreciated!! I bought the graphite grey/pacific blue combo, however, that will be changed out for the Orange metallic tribal. I wanted to be different, as there are but maybe 1 R3 riding around in my area. I only wish the tribal came in different colors. At least they are giving me the other parts (tank, fenders, etc.), so if I get tired of the orange, I can switch them out!! This dealership is VERY new, so I am concerned about their experience in the shop. I ordered the Triumph "off road" silencers along with their upgrade kit. Crazy, I know---freakin' 800 and something dollars. Can I assume that this "upgrade" kit means that they will bypass the cat? Do the new mufflers come with a new tune for it that they have to install? I am having them leave the saddle bags off for now. If I need/want them later, I'll put them on. I bought the tourer because it had everything else I wanted and was cheaper. I also ordered the fog lights, fuel gauge, touring seat, rider back rest, and knee pads. Does anyone else have a tribal here that I could see? I didn't see any in the photo gallery. Anyway, just wanted to stop by and say hello. Oh, almost forgot---I see that the Tuneboy group buy ends tomorrow. Should I get this since Triumph should change the tune on it to match the new pipes? I do plan to do something with the intake. PROBABLY just a K&N under the seat. PLEASE--any thoughts/answers/recommendations will be most appreciated. As a Paramedic, I promise to stick you with a tiny needle instead of a large one if I ever have to take care of you!!! Thanks so much!
