Triumph Forum Emergency Parts Service [Fee based service]

Ok, just checking. Here is my question, if you are broke down in remote N.Am or Australia ie. generally stuck in BFNowhere, and Triumph quotes you 3 weeks, would you be prepared to pay to have an individual forum member near Hinkley or near Triumph parts personally pick them up for you and put them out on the next DHL truck or international carrier of your choice?

Obviously we would have to work out some details and find an individual or individuals who would be available on request but I interested in whether there are enough on the list who would be interested in further discussions on this matter

Thanks for your vote and thoughts

Would the Triumph dealer near Hinkley be able to perform that function?

Hi Studley,
Our `Guru'   Coconut  :020:   has already done  such a good deed  :028: ,   see attached...

             https://www.triumph-trophy.com/index.php/topic,1721.40.html

Hi Frosty ( and John ! ),
If John is unsuccessful I would be happy to order one
from "World of Triumph" and send it to you by Airmail.      ( which he did )

Sending you a PM with details

I did indeed step in there to help a fellow Forum Member, and would do again.

"Frosty" had organised a major Ride-Out and was at risk of having to cancel  :005:

It wasn't really a big issue for me - "World of Triumph" had the part in stock,
I phoned them, paid them by Credit Card, they sent it to me with Next Day delivery,
and I sent it on to Oz by Airmail - sorted  :028:

Frosty paid me by Paypal, he got the part in time and everyone was happy.

I now have a Friendly Tour Guide for free if I ever visit that part of the World  :008:

Perhaps they would, at this time what we are trying to determine is whether or not there are enough people who would enjoy such a service and be willing to pay a premium versus waiting. No sense of approaching a dealer or forum member if there is no need or people are not willing to pay.

Thanks for your thoughts / idea

If my triumph lets me down in the middle of nowhere, it won't be my triumph much longer. 

If it gets damaged somehow, insurance, roadside assistance, and rental service will kick in.

Hi Studley,

Good idea, I suspect many of us would perform this service to fellow forum members, I know I would.

In a Touring Forum I used to be very active on we have TA's, Touring Assistance, people who annually subscribe to a list with what they can help with to fellow Forum members who are on a journey.  I am still listed as a TA but no one has ever asked for my help.

Good luck with your initiative,

Love, light and kindness,

Dave
