Reasons for selling a modern Triumph/Tiger
« on: September 26, 2020, 02:41:57 pm »
I suspect that most of those reasons could be said for many a modern bike/vehicle,....the craze for fitting a TFT dash to most motorcycles for example, how many of those are not going to suffer problems after a few years of road use. :187:

There are always going to be those that want to have the newest technology, whether it be in vehicles or electronics, and I’m all for it, despite the fact that I’m not one of them. Those are the Consumers who drive product improvements.

Me, I tend to let someone else “shake out the bugs” in those new products, then happily take advantage when the new technology is proven, and more affordable.

Improvements like tubeless tires, radial tires, disc brakes, abs, traction control, power windscreens, electronic suspension, quickshifters, etc. were all met with varying degrees of derision when first introduced, and now I wouldn’t want to be without them...

Totally agree.
Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

I can certainly agree on the above items but some things like the electronic handbrake system in modern cars for example just seem to be invented to cost a lot of money in parts when they do play up. :233:
