I just pulled in another gig this morning from an existing client......so I thought it may be a good time to mention the Heed Bars to the wife.

In retrospect, it may not have been the best time because I got the Death Stare!

Update is that Tony the Tools will fit them for me! He was thinking of a set for his bike so he's interested to see what they're like.

Delivery should be later on next week.....they're coming from Poland.

You guys in Britain have got to pay import taxes on stuff from Europe now haven't you?

 I have never ever ordered stuff from Europe, doubt that I ever will, get whatever I need from UK supplier.👍

But if those parts or accessories originated from Europe then the price is going to be higher Clive......cos the UK supplier will have had to pay the import duty.

And what about European bikes......will those cost more?

Yes, if the parts are bought in by a supplier then import duty will be added, but if I ordered something from say Germany direct to my address, then when it arrived I would (from what I have read) be asked to pay import duty & possibly courier charges.........Good job that the Triumph factory is just down the M1 😂

Not if it is less than £135.

And they're here!

Very impressive......twice the thickness of the Givi ones that were on the Strom!

I looked at the instructions and it involves taking out big bolts going through the frame! :classic_ohmy:

Definitely a job for Tony the Tools!

Got my Polish 3D printed hand guard extenders. Just pushed them on and they seem to be tight. Did 70-90mph home on the motorway and they didn't move, stopped the cold wind shooting up my sleeve. I only fitted the right one to come home as a test of the difference they make. Might run a bit of glue or silicon on them to make sure they don't leave me. No tax requested, just came through the post.

Little bit of black spray over them to make them colour match, @yen_powell?

You forget, I am partially colour blind, the blue doesn't bother me too much. You can buy the file only and get them printed up again if you know someone with a printer and the right colour plastic, I'll see how I get on with them.

@Earache  Hey! Those look familiar...  I still haven't tried printing them in flexible material but I'm getting closer...

 

Here's the set I printed for Earache. Not sure why he chose this color but I don't judge...

I still think 3D printing is powerful magic. We are living in the science fiction of my youth.

Have you ever seen the episode of Red Dwarf where during a disaster an emergency crew member is 3d Printed by the ship's computer and it jams slightly as it comes out of the plotter, over prints in the head area and he has to bend his head right over to look at people all the time?
