Well, the boys from Hinkley dropped by the other day, gave Ray Price a plaque for doing such a good job selling Triumphs to the local patrons here....then they instructed my service chief NOT TO REPLACE my leaky gas tank with one of the tanks from a still crated SE because....wait for it ..... That tank will fail also! So, I get to wait "a week or so" until a new batch of tanks with the new design that won't leak, comes to our shores. Moral of the story: Great Bike, worth every penny, but don't put a cent down on a new SE until you're sure that it has the safe gasoline tank! -Dr Ron

Thanks Trumpetman,

For the Australian TT owners the web site to check is http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/952401 I have had a quick look and there is nothing posted.
No such thing as bad weather - just inappropriate clothing.
