Too right. But that would constitute common sense.
Always ride in control.

Caulk up another bad fork seal. Right side after just 300 miles.... :083:
Oil and what appeared to be grease on the front wheel!!!

Sorry to hear that. I recently bought my bike and I just went over 300 miles. I was curious to know what was the production date of your bike? It's on the left side of the frame near the steering column.  I'm concerned I could be heading down that road. My prod date is 3/13.

There is a gap between the dust seal & fork seal and this is where the assembly grease is. Took mine back to the dealer 3 times for a clean up and has been perfect ever since. Now got over 7k up.
The dealer and I were sceptical on Triumphs diagnosis but they have proven correct.
