My first trumpy
Hi All, Well earlier this year I became the proud owner of my first trumpy 2007 Tiger Sport 1050.
I bought the bike from Procycles ST Peters, and may I say what a bunch of rip off merchants they are. I live in Newcastle so a lot of the dealing was over the phone. I traded a 2000 BMW 650 Dakar. In pretty good nick for it's age, the usual battle scars, but so many new parts I fitted to it chain, sprockets, fork seals, tyres, rego was due in July, I bought my bike in April. I offered the saleman photos of the bike but he just said its ok mate I'll offer you$2500 as a trade in. All excited I arranged finance, paid for the bike and when I went to change over, yep you guessed it. The Business Manager Vicktor, asked me if he could look over the beemer. I sat and waited the in he walks with the saleman and says "I didn't realise the bike was not in real good order". I stood up and said what crap is that then he tells me he can only offer me $2000, so I had to come up with $500 cash cos I really wanted the bike. Anyway the bike is different because it is a 2007 model with 50k, but the previous owner apparently cooked the engine in it so it now has a 1050 speed triple motor in from a 2009 model speed triple that they also sold. Servicing is going to be a nightmare cos I don't have a house to give to Brisans if I go to them. Got lots of info off the net so I might do it myself, and with the help of you guys on this forum. Cheers and happy riding.
