Smile Regrets ?

I regret that Triumph didn't manufacture the bike sooner. I am on my second one ,and this one is better than the first. Some problems , of course like all bike companies have their on unique problems. Honda just recalled all 2001 -2012 Goldwings for a serious brake problem and put a no sale hold on any new bikes to the dealers. Harley has their own issues as well frames, engine overheating and transmissions. Is my T'Bird perfect , no, but I enjoy it better than any bike I have owned.
Will I buy another Triumph, you damned right i will.

None whatsoever...it's an excellent bike.

I love that since I've been out on the road, on my bike, I haven't seen another.

I love that no matter what type of bike someone is riding, they gush over my bike.

I'm very pleased...

I regret that I bought it so late in the season....now I have to wait until Spring to ride it again....

But at least I did get the break in service behind me.

Couldn't say it better than BullClark and Lantesh above - love my bike and the fact that it stands out as different.

No regrets at all. I made a 6,700 mile trip last June and I couldn't have asked for a better ride to be on.

I just wanted to add that this June I am headed to California then up into Oregon before I start swinging back to North Carolina and next year I have already made plans to ride to Alaska. So yes I think my Bird is a comfortable ride.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my Thunderbird. Got it just shy of two years ago now, put nearly 30k miles on it, made two 5k mile trips during that time, and it has been rock solid. It also held up doing a SaddleSore 1000 Iron Butt run without a hiccup.
