Faulty throttle linkage!
« on: May 25, 2014, 04:10:41 pm »
My bike is parked for the next 3 weeks due to a faulty linkage between my right arm and the throttle grip. Right wrist is wrapped in a brace till F@#$kin' tendonitis is gone. Has anyone heard of a Triumph safety recall for this condition?

Ha!

Maybe there should be a recall for this?
My Trophy will have the same problem in late June, but for five months. :151:  Cause: right shoulder surgery.  I am paying for the stupid, but fun stuff, I did as a kid.

Well I don't know where Im riding yet, but come the first week of July either the wrist is healed or its getting wrapped in 100mph tape and Im eating ibuprofen because I have a week to play and we're putting on some miles.
I wish I could just fall apart in January.
