Live free or die
« on: June 02, 2016, 08:20:29 am »
Greetings from NH (USA).
I am currently still shopping for my TTSE.  I've found a couple that are exactly what I'm looking for, however 1 is overpriced, and the other I'm still waiting on the dealer to call me back.  My current ride is a 2012 Vstrom 1k Adv. that I originally purchased thinking I'd be doing some trail riding as well as touring and commuting.  Turns out I do about 99% of the latter, and now no off road.  A sport touring ride just makes sense for me.  I'm looking at the TT, the C14, the FJR and the R1200.  The TT and the R1200 fit me the best... but I don't want to deal with the cost of ownership on the Bimmer.  Anyway, as with everything I purchase, I like to check the forums first to learn about potential problems I could be facing.  Looking forward to chatting with fellow enthusiasts here.
BIC

Hi BIC, and :400: to the Forum !

As Motorcycle Forums go, this is definitely one of, if not THE best !

...... much like the Trophy really  :169:

Members are all very friendly and helpful, and there is a wealth of information in here.

You could do worse than having a squint through this Post : TOP TIPS for New Forum Members !

Please don't be put off by the "Common Faults & Issues" message, which may seem quite long,
but it was compiled more as a "Self Help" Section on how to put things right.
Most of the issues are relatively minor, or have only affected a few machines,
and have largely been sorted out now by Triumph.

On the rare occasion you can't find some information you're looking for
after using the SEARCH button, just post a question in a relevant Section,
and you will surprised how quickly you get responses !

Cheers  :821:

Thank you sir!  I understand that when cruising the 'issues' sections, you won't find the posts from people that don't have any, nor have never had any.  I typically look for the issues with pages upon pages of posts on a problem... leads me to believe there's something there.  Still truly excited to get my first Triumph.

DON'T search for "How to check the oil level" then ( 7 pages ! ) :745:

Welcome.
What part of the Granite State? I used to reside in Maine and really enjoyed my excursions into the northern part of New Hampshire. Paul Fisher, aka Fish, at Blouin Performance in Augusta, ME has been know to make a deal.

Good luck with your search.

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.
