Well, mixed emotions this week.
The bike was delivered at 07:50 on Monday looking stunning, but of course it was tipping it down.  :157:
Never ming, it was dry and sunny on Tuesday and Wednesday  :046:
Unfortunately, on Wednesday, whilst out I noticed that there appeared to be oil appearing around the head gasket area on the lhs of the engine  :151:
Took it to a local dealer to be told it has to come in - will deliver it this morning and they "hope" to have it back by Tuesday/Wednesday.
Not the start of Triumph ownership I was hoping for, but let's see what happens eh?
Still love the bike though.  :031:

No exchange bike while they put your bike right?
Life is too short to drink bad wine or to ride bad bikes.

Brand new bike? Not a good start at all if new.

Tiny detail but are side reflectors a legal requirement on new bikes now? I've not had them on any of my bikes.
