Next Bike of the Month Contest

July 15th, 2011 No comments

We just finished running our first Bike of the Month Contest, but we’re already gearing up for the next one. We had so many entries and we were thrilled to see all the customizations to your Triumphs! We want to make sure you have plenty of time to get the perfect shot for our next contest because this one is going to need a little extra work from you.

Our next Bike of the Month Contest will be travel themed. We want to see your bike in pictures with a famous monument, tourist spot or famous place in your town. It doesn’t need to be the Grand Canyon or Big Ben; we’d love to see your bike in front of places like a ghost town, the world’s largest thermometer (in Baker, CA) or the “Big Tex” statue (in Conlen, TX).

I know I can stand to shed a few pounds, and so can your Triumph. Take some of that unnecessary extra poundage off your bike with the British Customs Front Sprocket Cover w/ Holes; it weighs less than half a pound! Replace that bulky factory sprocket cover with our low profile one to give yourself an aggressive edge. Made from stainless steel, the British Customs Front Sprocket Covers are available in different styles to fit your personal bike: Solid and Radius with holes, and available in a polished chrome finish or a black matte finish.  Keep your eyes out for the matching chain guard, currently in production.
