    Took the Triumph down the tip where it belongs..Well I would have liked to but I could not take the £12k hit !

    After 640 miles from new I decided I simply could not live with the thing..
    mainly because of the absolute CRAP company.. The bike I could live with.
    But I was constantly aware that if the bike fails in any way I would have to deal with the absolute wankers at Triumph, and I just could not take the chance or the hassle
    Put in part ex for a 2016 R1200GS with all the toys.

    Riding the BM home was a revelation .. Within 3 corners and a roundabout I felt I was back home.. By the time the roundabouts on the Thetford bypass was reached I had toes scraping on the first one and pegs on the next.. Deep joy and peace to all men.. I was chuffed to errrr .... bollards ? Well happy :)

    The GS will ( cannot ! ) replace my Bird which still has pride of place in the stable, but for continent munching and going off road the GS will do nicely :)

    Oh, and when I looked closely at the Triumph ( 640 miles and kept in a warm dry garage ) an awful lot of fasteners were already starting to fur ....
