Loaner !
« on: August 07, 2013, 09:43:11 PM »
Had my Trophy in at the Dealers today for a minor job, and they lent me a "Scrambler 900".

I'm not going to post a Ride Report on the Scrambler here, but it really did make me appreciate just how much
protection from the elements you get, with the Fairing and Screen on the Trophy !   :169:

Very cute Coconut. I have the same problem when mine goes in for a service. It is a long run back to the house on a bike with little protection

I'm guessing from your location that your local dealer is Staffs Triumph? How do you rate them?

"Cute" ? - Sort of, not really my thing though.

Hi Paulvt1 - :158:
I actually bought the bike from Stratstone, Wolverhampton,
not far from you I believe, and so far they have been pretty good there.

I may well be using Staffs Triumph in the future though,
as the plan is to move further North before too long.

Yes - got mine from Stratstones. They seem ok - the week i picked mine up they were one mechanic down - but still had the bike prepped on time.

I prefer to use a non-main dealer. I've been introduced to a nice shop/garage with great recommendations, they're smiley, cheaper, can always fit me in sooner... only downside is that their courtesy bikes are Yamaha Fazers!!

Don't get me wrong, it's a great bike for 20 year olds that want acceleration and no braking ability, stupidly light so you don't dig in on bends, nut-ache from the tank and a rock hard solid seat that canes your backside after 10 mins... but it's just not for me.

Trouble is, I find myself misbehaving on it too!! But a scrambler?!?!?... could be fun for a day.

At least you got a loaner! LOL

Mind you, if I had known they were going to take as long as they have I would have made sure I got one!

Still forks all rebuilt and refilled now.... pick it up Saturday morning when I can get to the dealership! :001: :001:
