Down but not out - Hopefully
« on: October 09, 2013, 12:58:31 am »
Just heard from the dealer today and it looks like I will be without the Trophy for awhile. He said that they opened a case with Triumph concerning TES and the bike not recognizing my key.
They solved the engine light and a few other little problems but they have not be able to get the TES to calibrate. Every time the ignition is turned on the TES goes into cal mode but never finishes and goes into failure mode.
As for the Key, I was not able to ask questions and not exactly sure what's up with that. The key must still be working if they are able to get the bike to turn on.
I hope they are able to figure it out soon, because I have a vacation planned for the 16th with a ride to my brother's (HHI, SC) and then to my nephew's (ATL, GA).
Here's to crossing my fingers.

Hopefully they will get it fixed soon and you can get it back to have a good vacation.

wish this is solved swiftly, if not done by the 16th maybe the dealer can provide you with a courtesy bike?

Unless there is a miracle, it looks like I will be driving down to my brothers.
Verdun95- I have been offered a Goldwing, Monster, and a Rocket III by friends to use but I never really feel comfortable riding other peoples bikes. Even if they are close friends. There is always the "what ifs". As far as using a courtesy bike, I don't know if I would trust some of the bikes I have been given in the past. Still, whether its a friends or courtesy bike, I just never get comfortable. Its a me thing.
I haven't heard anything since last Tues and I have a chance to leave tomorrow afternoon, so unless they fixed it Sat, I figure its still down and out.
The tech did say, that since the blue Trophys are tuned to a higher level than the silver ones, they are a little more tempermental.
Hoping on a miracle.
My ten year old niece, who is going on 30, has informed me that she has created two itineraries for us. One based on me coming down with my car and one based on me with the bike. Wish me luck.

I'm truly sorry for the loss of your blue bike event...the loss  of the blue gal must hurt... silvers rarely make up for the hurt of the loss of a blue... :001:

It is a damned shame the dealship cannot support you better. Especially given the money you put into it through buying the bike.
