Technical and tyres
No fault codes when plugged into laptop. I bought a after market rectifier last year then to be told by Triumph I got a warranty claim for a rectifier which I took in today to be done, I took it for it to be done to rule out any rectifier problems, it got a new battery fitted as well today on warranty. The bike is exactly the same with the new genuine rectifier on .
The problem started after fitting the downpipes, I didn't touch any electrics but for unplugging electric fan if I remember correctly to remove the radiator. I told all this to the triumph dealer but it didn't make a difference. I did take take the bike to the local bike mechanic for him to fit the downpipes , but he parmed me off saying i could do it myself give me some advise and sent me on my way , he was busy that probably why.
You ain't obviously seen my ol' witch cos then you'd realise it's not good to look at her from a distance never mind up close on the rare occasion we're bumping uglies.
So definitely not wanting to watch any re-run of that very short film.
Remember guys , it's a race and there's no points for coming second.
This is it - there are less than 24 hours before the World Superbike weekend at Phillip Island and the start of MCN's 2015 Fantasy Road Race! Be there at the beginning by competing in the "Two Wheels Good" league (PIN #19394), and in addition to bragging rights, maybe you'll win a little somethin' else. Enjoy the season, and see you at the chequered flag!
Legal and insurance
I've been with them for years and have no problems. Their European breakdown cover is excellent also which is included in the premium, which is why they probably don't appear to be the cheapest quote sometimes but I've had reason to use it twice and the call-out was quick. Can't remember how long I've been with them but it must be 10 years at least.
Buying and selling
At the time the VFR was the machine that I toured on. It hauled my arse all over Spain faithfully and with out any breakdowns or issues every summer for many years. When planning my 2013 jaunt my girlfriend decided that she would like to come with me. Now the VFR is good but its not made for two up touring. So I replaced it with an R1200RT
I would upload a photo but can't figure our how to do so on the new crappy website.
