Yeah, but the shop I deal with and have dealt with for many years, and I were able to work out a deal. Still it will cost me a few bucks, which is why I waited till now to get the work done.

Thumbs up Bike service.

Where do you get your Triumphs serviced? The places in mid CT have gone away and the new place is ...well...new. I do not want them learning on my bike.

Cheers!!

I go to Riverside in Somerville, MA They have been there for many years, I have never had any issues to write home about.

There is a small shop in Swansea, MA It is a family business and I have been there and talked to the owner, I would have no problem bring my bike there for service.

I have never heard anything good about the guy in Halifax.

Just picked my Sprint up after some much needed service, and while it wasn't cheap......she's worth every penny

Pyramid carbon fiber hugger and cheap chain guard.

It replaced a Skidmarx carbon fiber hugger which is for sale in the classified forum.

22F -6C Degrees when I left my house

What I did was simply ride to work. Time to fish out the connecting wires for the heated gloves!!

Had heated hand grips installed. I love them.
