Hi baza and welcome to the forum.
The answers to your questions may be a little biased on this site but we are all happy to help.
We'll try to be objective but no promises given.
Good luck.

The proof is in the test ride. My long time dealer sells BMW and Triumph. Tried the Triumph Roadie and the BMW on test rides. Easy decision. You may come to a different conclusion. My previous bike was a BMW R100/7, so I was not a Triumph guy.
