And for once - gold looks OK. I'd still have black if the choice was there.

I think if I'd been ordering it brand new I'd have played it safe and ordered it with the black wheels too.

Thanks dude!

Quote from: Alzo on December 13, 2019, 10:50:58 amThe Gold wheels define the design...don't succumb to polarisation...embrace your own mind.
Bike is ace...I wish you and your much better quarter many happy safe journeys.

I agree! And thanks :)

I've bored everyone on Facebook with pics, so thought I'd inflict them on the rest of you lol

The gold wheels seem to polarise people's opinions, they are growing on me I must admit but overall I'm velly 'appy.

Think I'm paying £74.99 to BT for Unlimited Fibre plus BT Sport HD. Can only get 24mbps download/3mbps upload here and no option for Virgin fibre. Paying Sky £36 a month for Sky Q 2TB (UHD) and have the minimum of channels but get Eurosport so I can watch the BSB and WSBK.

I might swap back to streaming next year, last time I did it it worked out less than 200quid for the year to be able to stream MotoGP, BSB and WSBK live and thats all I ever watch. I don't watch any other live TV.

The odd indeed, the Tiger 1200 XRT has shift assist as standard and I know for a fact is a QS with auto blipper but perhaps they haven't carried that properly over to the Speed, which is a real shame and possibly a bad move by Triumph!

Quote from: komp on September 09, 2019, 04:12:54 pmit comes with something called triumph shift assist, which i found to be shit when i went on test ride
so had a QS installed, only works on up shift... i believe, i haven't actually tried on downshift tbh


Thats odd mate, Triumph Shift Assist IS a quickshifter for the upchange with a blipper for the downchange. Tiger 1200 owner with it rate it highly so I'm surprised you found it shit :(

Quote from: komp on August 30, 2019, 08:41:42 amyes mate... excellent powers of deduction :)

i didnt know that, although not sure i would need any more ponies, the 1050 was rapid


I wonder if it's to balance any new emissions regs strangling the engine?

To keep up with the competition...the new generation BMW S1000R with the Shiftcam engine will lead the field soon...a bike for real men...not many on here...😂😉

None as far as I know.... ;)


Apart from me.

I stand by my previous statement....


You'd have starved last weekend if not for my efforts. 🙄😉

Thats true, you fed me with a constant supply of good food and good insults :D

I'm sure it's already on your radar but definitely worth giving the Street Triple 765 a shot.

My recent experience with BMW has left a sour taste in my mouth. Seems they have an attitude that if you own a BMW you must have money to burn.

Triumph rang me last year when mine was in for a service to say it needed a brake fluid change, cost was another £50 so I said no thanks. When I arrived the mechanic gave me some words of wisdom such as not emptying the system as it'll then need the ABS pump purged which you can't do unless you have the DealerTool software.

Despite the above, Triumph's servicing costs generally seem higher than BMW to start with. Mine was a 10,000 service and it was just over £300 and that didn't include brake fluid change.

I can only add that I can at least sympathise with the mindset and the umming and ahhing about it.

My Explorer recently went in to Triumph for 3 weeks and needed £1050 of gearbox work on a bike with less than 12,000miles on it. Before I put it in I considered selling, considered leaving it as the problem is so intermittent but eventually it put me off riding the damn thing.

None of the above helps you I'm afraid. But as others have said I can't imagine the engine is beyond repair or not worth fixing. If it means alot to you then it IS worth fixing despite what cunty mccuntface said.

Also, if it's such a well known issue, this guy can't be the only one aware of it with valuable info.
