Thumbs up This bike is tight!

Just picked up my new 2011 TBird and took it out for about 55km before I had to retire for the evening. WOW, it this bike tight. Engine tight, shifting tight, fit and finish perfect. After about 30km I could feel the shifting and engine seem to loosen a bit. I have broken in about 3 new motorcycles and this one by far is really torqued together. It feels like it is all simply one piece. No doubt Triumph is very serious about making a decent motorcycle.

Congrats on your new machine!

I feel the same way about mine, even though I've had a couple of little issues with it ... its amazing. Just put in another looong ride today in the rain, and loved every minute of it.

I've put on 3000 km in just over 3 weeks Can't stay off the thing.


What if there were no hypothetical questions?
