Hi all
Ive tracked a few topics on here recently and thought its about time I joined as its a great forum. Ive had just about every type of bike in the past but always find myself going back to a Triumph of sorts. I have a gt pro on order which Im not 100% convinced its for me. Ive taken out a demo 3 times from two different dealers and convinced myself I could live with the niggles......I cant. As I do a daily commute on the M5, its just too vibey for me. One demo ride I had it for 2 hrs and still had a doubt in my mind. Ive now just bought a tiger 800 xrt and will now try to have my deposit reimbursed. I only ordered it as it had at the time a 5 month waiting list. Didnt want to get to March next yr without a bike.

Welcome! I had the exact same experience with a Rally Pro, cancelled my order a day later due to  tingling feet and hands from the vibes which didnt fully subside for 3 days. Not at all unhappy with the XRT, brought as a bit of a consultation prize initially but really quite taken with it now and likely a keeper. This is the third bike Ive brought this year (MT09 tracer and a Ninja 1000SX) and the 800 fits me the best for sure.

was you able to get your deposit back ? I also had a demo on a Yamaha 900 tracer gt and found that to be worse as the tingles came right through the frame which was a shame as the price is right with a stonking engine. All down to personal findings what affects me may not bother anyone else.
