You do the rider training course yet?
Waaaay back when I was a brand new rider I rode my brand new old bike into my mother's garage at about 5 mph and slid at about 3' on my left leg. No damage but that was drop #3. Drop #2 happened when I pulled up in front of the house and came to a complete stop, bike started listening to gravity and down it went with me under it.
Drop #1 was a classic. I had been licensed for all of 3 days and was attempting to make a left on a narrow 2 lane road with no shoulder. I had to come to a complete stop and as I pulled away the bike shut off. I restarted it and again it shut off. You know how when you start riding bike seem to be outrageously heavy? Well grqavity said "GET OVER HERE!" and it slowly started to head towards the ground and my attempts to keep it upright were in vain. So there I was standing on the yellow line with the bike lying perpendicular across it. I looked up and a dump truck heading towards me. I looked back and a school bus was coming from the other direction. Did I mention it was a narrow 2 lane road with no shoulder? Suddenly I was imbued with the strength of Samson! I snatched the bike up, clutched in and Fred Flinstone'd across the road. Thank you Yahweh/God/Allah/Buddha/Zeus/Jupiter/David Koresh for granting me the strength to stay alive!!!
After gasping a sigh of relief and catching my breath I then realized the damned thing was in 2nd gear
Look what your beloved Triumph is dropping tomorrow. 1200cc with 64% more torque than your Bonnie, liquid cooling, ABS, traction control, ride modes, Brembo brakes and Ohlins suspension and a half fairing. Sound like the answer to your prayers
It seems that they have redone their entire line
Yeah, it broke off when the bike fell over. I ordered a replacement part on ebay with a folding tip. Hoping the rubber bit fits, or I'll just buy a pencil grip and shove/glue it on. I need to get a the clip pliers or whatever they're called to take the broken part off.
