Clearly it's made to GO, not to sit still...

even so, to call that scary is an understatement  Eeeeek

Are you on the waiting list for an organ or something?

I recognize Touring Sport. I did some business with them a couple years ago. Service on a BMW I had at the time.They seemed competent back then. I would expect part of predelivery would include a check that the brakes work, especially if the bike is notorious for air in the system.

You would think. The service mgr. called and apologized . It was delivered today, checked the brakes, very good. Plan to ride Sunday, less traffic and it's been years since I rode, so I feel I
need low traffic on the same road with me... Blush

Good luck on the maiden voyage and with the bike in general. I've got several Triumphs including 2 oldies (68 and 71 500s). Way too much fun for folks of our age!

Put a 113 miles on it yesterday. Old men and FASSST bikes are strange and unnatural combinations but SO MUCH FUN... Biggrin 
Got to get foam grips, that engine vibrates like a BIG jar of angry Hornets. Can't do over 60 MPH during "break in" Which is 600 miles.
Hey, 60 is fast enough when you are 70... Cheers
