My 2012 STR a brief history
on: March 22, 2017, 08:19:15 PM
Now that I've got my bike pretty much how I want it, thought I'd let folks know what I've done and put up some pics.

Bought her back in February 2015 mainly concentrated on riding and getting to know the bike and for the first year only added what I considered to be the sensible/necessary mods.
Oxford heated grips
Evotec radiator guard
CarbonFBR extended hugger
Decent tyres (Metzler M7RR)
Triumph engine casing protectors

Into the second year of ownership and time to do a few cosmetic improvements

Evotec brake and clutch levers
Triumph anodised front and rear brake reservoirs
Evotec paddock stand bobbins
Seat cowl and removal of pillion pegs

I'm now into the third year of ownership and decided she's definitely a keeper  :002: and thought I'd invest a bit more cash. So far this year I've added:

Scorpion oval carbon exhaust

And plan to add a tail tidy, maybe so more carbon bits.
Anyway, here's a link to some photos.  :002:

I agree with your priorities regarding which mods to do first. Now you've got the seat cowl and scorpions it looks really good. The whole black/red thing hangs together nicely.
