Newbie in Somerset
« on: September 17, 2014, 10:35:34 am »
Morning all,
I'm currently on a 2011 1200rt, nice bike to ride but totally fed up with flaking paint corrosion etc. :110:
I've been doing my research and like the looks of the TT and impressed with the reviews.

My rt is on a PCP and has now reached its miles (just a few months early) :006:, I tried the 2014 rt and was not impressed :110:, I like the ride on the k16 but its probably too much for what i need.

So, next step is to visit my local Triumph dealer (Wellington, Somerset) and have a test ride, hopefully in the next couple of weeks.

I'll keep you updated,
Sherman

Welcome.
Be prepared to make payment arrangements at the end of the test ride.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

Hi Sherman... and welcome to the gang :400:

If you have any questions after your test ride.... assuming you aren't so blown away like the rest of us that you don't sign up for things right away.... then ask away!

Welcome Sherman!  There are only 2 types of people: those who own a Trophy, and those who haven't yet taken a test ride!  Congratulations in advance!

Hi Sherman, welcome aboard, don't waste any time: rush to the nearest dealer and take a test ride, and as you have probably read it often on this forum when so doing do not forget your wallet  :821:
An old biker must be a good rider
