the recall on the suspension is Triumph being ultra careful,which is good. My mate rode his bike to the dealer for the fix and took the new 1050 Tiger for a 2 hour ride thru Wales. Seems good to me. All manufacturers have recalls for minor items,it's no big deal. Triumph quality is up there with the best and generally dealer customer service is also very good. I'm on my 5th bike and have had very little go wrongmy next bike will be another Triumph,in fact I'm not really interested in any other manufacturer probably cos I really like the triple engine (characteristics and sound).
