Welcome Brian! The new Triumphs are bullet-proof. If you have a modicum of mechanical skill you can keep ahead of most maintenance tasks and time tables. If I were buying; it'd be a Tiger. Enjoy the site!
Hmm, two immediate votes for the Tiger. Maybe I should look a bit closer.
AFA mechanical abilities, I try to do my own as long as it is not on the bits that could kill me (brakes, tires) but as I age that is starting to change. Maybe my wife is urging a bit too much... and then there is that new extra insurance policy...
Thanks for weighing in, guys.
