Way to go, Icy. A great cause to be a part of and I'm sure you represented it well. Congrats on the new rides. You'll both love them! :028:

 Congrats Icy!
I know first hand how it feels.
Wish you the best of reliability on this (otherwise) excellent machine!

Thank you Nik - I know how it is. And I used your story as a weapon and threatened the heck out of everybody in my favorite Triumph dealership up in North East: Triumph of Westchester, NY. Feeling their full support behind me is what convinced me to pull the trigger. If something happens to that bike, I know they got my back - they have done so time and time again and have a great track record. I am truly sorry for the miserable situation you found yourself in. I hope that sorry excuse of a dealer  :232:  you have to deal with resolves that mess sooner than later my brother  :003:  Praying that this computer on two wheels won't crap out on me... and if it does, I want Triumph to look me in the eye and tell me that I broke their bike because I rode it too hard!

Considering I'm apparently the only one here left stranded by Triumph mothership, chances are you'll enjoy your stallion until you have your favorite roads completely washed out ;-)

Funny - I own a TR6 (in storage) and a Gen 1 TEX. Also, my mum has MS - thank you for your support of the MS150 ride.
Cheers, Ian

It is my pleasure, duty, honor, the least I can do at every chance I got. All my well wishes for your mum :100: please send her my regards  :002:

Please also follow and check out Long Haul Paul's story: a truly inspiring individual whose MS progress stopped and even went to remission for years after he realized motorcycle riding causing the healing. I met him when I used to hung out in Twisted Throttle a few years back. I have been following him ever since - a true inspiration and a riding testament to the health benefits of motorcycle riding. He is the first person to have "riding motorcycle for x hours a day" prescribed by an MD in the US of A.

and the love continues







and the missus is very happy with the scrambly





she took ownership of it yesterday and rode it for 50 miles. we took it out today to show around town did another 100 miles. it's a fun bike indeed. this week I'll take it around NY to introduce the traffic jams and make sure that clutch gets its workout.

TEX got its 500 mile service. Couldn't be happier - I love the throttle response, the brakes, the handling (it's a bit different) the refinements on the 2018 XCx are pretty much everything I had wished improved. My only resentment is that they removed the passing light button - I can no longer enjoy quick bursts of lights morse-coding my heart-felt thoughts about the individual in front of me... Maybe it's time for an air-horn...

??!!!
I have a passing light button. It simply behaves differently depending on the headlight state (DRL or low beam).

Aaaaaaahhhh. b@$t@rdos!  :232: It's not a passing light button unless you switch to Daytime Running Light mode. I never did!  :232: And of course, I never read the documentation - duh.  :211:  If you switch the headlights to DRL mode, THEN the highbeam switch acts like a passing light! My selector is on low beam mode and when I hit the high-beam selector it gets stuck on high beam until I hit it again, of course!

Nik, thank you for this tip brother - if I hadn't complained and you never responded I would probably never figure this out.  :745:
  :821:

Thank you  :002:

And to prove that now I am reading the documentation, I will be providing screengrabs from it!

And I sincerely hope your TEX gets out of that hell-hole of a dealer shop soon.  :019: I do send some well wishes to you whenever I can.
