Yeah I know what you mean. When I sat on the Triumph it really felt special. The main reason for upgrading my FZ07 is the fact that I would like to take the wife with me on trips. She is 'petite' but it is tight on the Yamaha and it becomes a challenge on longer trips. The Bonneville seems a better fit (this can also be said for the Z900RS I suppose). I also looked at the Thruxton, awesome machine but also more for solo ride I think.
I've owned a couple of Kawasaki's in the past (GPZ750, Z650, ZR7), also Honda and more then one Yamaha and I blindly rely on Japanese tech for all my cars and tech toys. I still have to develop trust for English engineering but from what I read it seems that they have come a long way.
The wrench symbol blinking at me would drive me crazy to be honest. I am pretty handy with computers and I read here that you can use TuneECU to access and reset the light. But only on Windows or Android, which would be a serious problem for me. I've dabbled with Windows on a MacBook but it was a horrible experience and I doubt that it will be simple with my MacBook Pro with USB-C ports. And I really do not want to go down the path of an Android ow Windows, just because Triumph decides to nag me with useless indicators on MY dashboard.
