Hello All!

Hi Folks,

New to the group but have been lurking for a couple days. Currently looking for a Sprint (likely) or newer Tiger (somewhat likely) to replace the V-Strom 1K I sold last fall. I did see a gorgeous Trophy 1200 (in NY) in the classifieds that makes me want to consider inter-country shipping...

Not a lot of Triumph dealers (1 in a 500 mile radius) in my neck of the woods so not a lot of used Triumphs. Will expand my search as the weather is getting too nice not to be riding.

Take care all!
-Brian

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.
