New owner in NC
« on: June 21, 2013, 02:37:52 AM »
Last Sunday my brother wants to visit the local Triumph dealer, and I say "sure, why not?" I brought my helmet and gloves in case I decided to test ride something. He starts talking to the manager about a Bonneville, so I take the Trophy for a spin. When I got back he was filling out the credit app. I had no idea he was serious, especially since he hasn't had a motorcycle license for 23 years. I ride his new bike back for him since I had my gear with me, and the next day I ride back with my America and trade it in. He tells his boss he has to go to the courthouse for some paperwork, but instead goes to the DMV for his temp permit - all the while on the clock. And to top it off he gets $100 for "recommending" me since he bought his the day before! Well, at least I have my Trophy SE...

Astro, your brother owes you a beer. And you are obviously far more discerning than he is, you bought the right bike. Best wishes,  :821:

Welcome they say don't have a test ride if you are not going to take your cheque book.  Another one bitten.
