What the..., How in the...,  How could...?   Oh my!  :187:  Do you recall hitting anything, a pothole, or, a big building? :087: Bigfoot?  Jeepers, hope it is a one-off type of break thing.

Please let us know what you find out from Triumph.  Thx.

Imposible to hit anything there. Look at the rear suspension linkage.... no hits, no damage. If you see the aluminum you can check that is a corrosion problem from inside. You can see different color in the broken part that means a manufacturing issue.

The real problem is that the suspension linkage is the same so...... It can brakes????
The bike near crashes on the right side. I had to pull too much to avoid a real body damage because it broke standing up the bike. I pushed and the bike rolled away  :005:

Wow.  Did it break on both sides?  Which year Trophy do you have?  Were you covered by the center stand recall?  I ask even though I don't think it could be related to the repair work which was done under the recall.

Could this have anything to do with number two here?

Let's go:
- the other side didn't brake but was damaged when bike lost left bracket.
- it's a 2013 bike.
- I don't really know if recall was done. I know the ECU and Head Cylinder recalls were done but not that one. Is seems I'm not the only one and it's very dangerous.

I really hurt pulling the bike to return it to vertical.

Now I have an issue that can't be fixed. Frame is broken and I need a new one? Remove everything from the broken one and rebuild my bike on a new??? It's going to be ok? I see a lot of problems with this.
