Funny you mention the Victory!! I am thinking the Bonneville is a little quicker than the Hammer, but I think it would likely be a good race to about 100mph, with the Bonnie pulling further ahead the faster we go!! I had my oldest son drive the Bonneville yesterday before I had done any work, and he quickly proclaimed that the Bonneville was the best and fastest bike in the garage!! (see sig).
He also said that I should get rid of the Hammer and keep the Bonnie!! I always wanted a Bonneville anyway, so who knows? Maybe sell the Hammer and get an FJR or Concours like I have threatened to do anyway this spring?!!?!?
$1900 for an 09 is a ridiculously low price even for a bike in that condition. I would bring it to a good Triumph dealer and let him check the bike out even though you know what you are doing. Maybe the dealer could back track the VIN # and give you history on the bike. Won't hurt.
You can have my Mickey Mouse Mirrors from my Bonnie T-100 4 a Xmas Card & postage............. the Mrs. Good Luck!
I was thinking more like bringing to a dealer and have him hook the bike up to the computer and see if you get an error messages. That should be about $65. If the dealer won't check out the VIN then call Triumph's customer service and ask them to check the VIN out for any recalls or problems. They are very helpful. The dealer wasn't doing you any favors with those prices. I would be careful about using him.
