Yes, not bad at all. In fact, as it is all black and tucked away, I would probably just leave it on.

 :iagree

Tidy looking mounting system  :thumbsup

Plus they will also function as pillion heel protection to prevent catching the swing arm / chain guard.
I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

And the 660 scored the maximum five stars at an MCN test: https://www.motorcyclenews.com/bike-reviews/triumph/tiger-660-sport/2022/

Sounds good!

Happily hold my hands up and confess that i’d Not taken any notice of the 660...but looks really usefull, one of the first things I did with my 955 was put a 17” front wheel in or be it a Dymag with similar in the back all part of why I still have it to this day.

I think TC3 probably had the same idea. :)

Hi guys just joined the site. Have a blue Tiger 660 on order and will be my first Triumph. Have been searching for something to use on sole touring trips and longer day trips and the Tiger 660 hits the sweet spot for me. Ordered with the panniers, panniers bags, pannier case infil, usb, heated grips, hand guards, connectivity modulequick shifter, led lights and the colour coded belly pan. my budget was 10k and with discount on the parts and the free fitting it just goes over that so pretty happy :),
So, when are you going to get yours in?

Mine should be at dealers in 6 weeks. If the salt is going down heavy on roads will delay pick up for a bit. All reviews seem pretty positive and thats good to know but nothing beats a test ride before parting with hard earned cash

I am pretty chilled and in no rush to be honest. Too much going on in life right now so not had much time to spend day dreaming about the new bike but thats ok as at least I got my order on early ... ok the first in the dealership...

Countdown then. :)

But I completely understand what you are saying. It has been so busy here, that I have not touched the KTM since I pulled the IMO and I cannot be bothered at the moment either. There is too much going on to think about it. It will come. ;)

So, you have ordered it without a test ride, but can you then still bail out when it does not feel as good as you had hoped, once it has arrived?

Yes ordered months ago with £500 deposit fully refunded if I dont like the test ride on the demo bike. They wont have no problem selling it in unlikely event I changed my mind. I was first to order before it was even on the UK dealer ordering system
