Hmm, maybe low voltage, dead battery. Same thing happened to mine. Limped it home. I think the rectifier died and drained battery.

Not had bike that long..bought off eBay without seeing it...apart from low idle speed and cutting out when you come to a stop and a bit rough running at times I can’t tell you much more than that...
Looking at getting a diagnostic cable and linking that to the wife’s computer..will that give me information I need to replace whatever I need to get her running back how she should be and is it idiot proof....

Check the wiring harness coming out of the bottom of the ignition switch. If you see colored wires, you've probably broken the white power lead. That can cause the bike to die at different steering angles.

The harness should be looped up to the left and zip-tied to the switch housing. If it is hanging, steering movement will flex the cable - and it hinges at the switch.

Did you sort the previous stalling issue? That could be leaky IAC hoses. Bike will stall when you drop throttle, clutch in, if those have cracks. Simple fix.

Wonder if that is what happened in the bend, except I doubt you had clutched in at the time, right?

I probably need an intervention because of the bikes that keep 'following' me home. Current garage:

Engine light WOULD be on with ignition when engine not running - sounds like it just had the stall you've been experiencing again and you should be able to re-start without much worry.
Besides - Engine lights are commonly misunderstood - it cannot possibly tell if there is something mechanical wrong - only that there is some sensor fault. So it didn't shut down because of some impending 'about to grenade' scenario.
I think your primary problem just needs to be addressed - sounds like throttle balance issue to me.

That’s reassuring at least Decosse...must admit my heart sank when it happened and I thought my dream of owning a triumph had come to a disappointing end..

Just start it & see what happens - hopefully engine light goes out as I suspect and if so, that validates it was just another stall.
If not, well, you WILL need to see what the trigger is - you'll have to determine based on how it is running, whether or not to ride it at that point.
