No, it was a serious question, I've never had an injection bike before, been riding since I was 9, built my first bike at 16 (nearly 40 years ago), and have had many bikes since. When I was low on fuel, and bike wouldn't start - a neighbour who has 6 bikes himself turned the 'fuel tap' to reserve for me! The fact that it was ridiculously inaccessible didn't even highlight the issue, based on where the rad cap and coolant window are situated. Just thought it might be another Triumph quirk.
I made 2 mistakes here (not the fuel tap):
1) That a Triumph forum would be a good place to ask an honest question.
2) That Triumph owners aren't a bunch of tossers that would take the pi$s out of me for asking said question.
I inherited my late husband's mint MK1 Speed Triple (which has a fuel tap), and he was the one that convinced me that Triumph Owners were nice people.
My bad, I'll get my coat.
