Talked to the triumph headquarters in atlanta today. the lady said Triumph is no longer doing the demo truck and the buyers must rely solely on the dealers to arrange for a test ride, given the dealers have a demo bike for the specific model of interest (in my case, 2012 T-bird or Storm). she called back after 2 hours to inform me that a dealer in VA may have both the demo bikes. The dealer is a 5 hour drive from where I live in MD.
If just taking a test ride of this bike is proving to be such a difficult experience, I am not sure if I want a Triumph anymore. Because tomorrow, the company can abruptly stop doing other normal things like offering dealer services or warranty on parts etc.
In a very disenchanted and frustrated frame of mind right now....
