For as much grief as I give Triumph and my bike… I have to say – this thing is the most reliable thing I’ve owned. I haven’t as much as looked at the bike in 2 months, only started it up and rode it around the block for the month before that.
I cleaned the bike off, replace the bad battery, and the bike fired up first try and I don’t think I heard it as much as make a pop or gurgle that it should make on the first ride of the year. I haven’t had to do any real maintenance on the bike even after a 2000+ mile trip through the desert and through days of constant rain… The oil still looks almost new.
I need to ride more often, beautiful day for it 40F this morning 43F on the way home, quite comfortable when you have the right gear for it.
