You never know, the next owner could ride it for a decade trouble free after that much re-work.A couple of concerns about this issue.
1. Good on Gold Coast Triumph for doing this but, why would the dealer buy a bike that it did not originally sell (and therefore no obligation to graeme) and given they know all about the problems concerning the bike?
2. Given the coverage this site has, I believe anyone looking to buy a used Storm will probably know about this particular bike and consequently giving the dealer a miss (if it's put in their sale lot).
If I was in the market for a used Storm in South East Queensland, I'd be doing my homework.
This thread started more than a month ago, and you concluded your first post with the quote above. I think the dye was cast then and the outcome was predictable.So now I hate it and want to get rid of it.
Very very upset
Has anyone else had some of these issues?
Ok, Graeme. I think we got the picture. You are really pissed off with Triumph. I know the feeling...had the same experience with HD. But I would buy another because I know that lemon bikes are a statistical anomaly. The bike I had should have had the entire 2006 Dyna model year recalled. But Harley Davidson decided to run from that responsibility. So, nothing different. Enjoy your Road King. Ride safe.Hi all,
I am not making this statement because of my tbird issues but the Roadking sh-ts all over the triumph in quality comfort and handling. I like the tbird and it's riding position. This is my 4th hd. I had 2010 Roadking and it was brilliant. Only reason I got rid of it was because of being followed home twice. My two triumphs have been terrible so nothing will convince me otherwise.
The thunderbird storm was a nice bike but in my own humble opinion it's nothing compared to my Roadking.
This is my own opinion and that's all it is.
