to buy extended warranty???

Hello fellow riders, I just bought myself a 2016 Trophy with 9000km on it. I was wandering if its worth buying a 2 year extended warranty? It's an expensive addition to purchase!! What are your thoughts??
This ttse seems very sophisticated and expensive to repair in case of a breakdown. I am a automotive tech for many years and do my own maintenance and repairs. But the parts are very expensive for this Trophy.
I just rode the bike home and love it!!! I am replacing this bike with a 2003 sprint st which I also enjoyed riding. Trophy much more comfort!

Normally I don't buy extended warranty on anything, but the TTSE was the exception, I bought extended warranty on mine, and now after nearly 90k miles the bike still rocks and the warranty will ride with me until 2020. Some people pay $20 for extended warranty on a $100 item, that equals to 20%, I think that percent wise that is to much, but the TTSE cost much more to own and to repair. I pay $700 or 4.12% , I figure, one repair will pay for the warranty. Haven't used yet!!

It's a 2014. No issues, engine wise!

Besides that:

1- Ignition wiring at 45K miles, there is not enough slack, but that's easy to prevent by playing with the wiring under the fuel tank to make some room. (That's the only defect I think the TTSE have.)

2- The part that the center stand attach to the frame, broke. It's probable that by error my bike came with a 2013 frame which have to be modify with a bracket on the center stand (there was a recall for that year). Within 5 minutes Triumph decided to replace the frame. Besides me, there is only one other case that I know. From 2014 and on, they reposition that part around 10mm to fix the issue.

In both cases Triumph fix the problems under warranty and without hesitation!

That said, my wife and I simply love the Trophy SE... in two weeks we are leaving on a 10 days camping trip... another 3k or 4k miles to the ODO. Can't wait!!

Note: For maintenance you use TuneEcu or Dealertool?
