Bargain Corner

Well, the Bastards bitten me once to many times.

If anyone wants to buy a September '15 1215 Triumph Trophy with full luggage, heated grips and a turn of speed that'll tear your gloves off, let me know.

Anything around £10k might do the trick.

Don't all shout at once.

You once wrote a tale "The Enfield strikes back" how about " The Triumph bites back"

Always sad news to let a bike go, but perhaps more pragmatic to get a smaller bike.

By the way, in the States they do a belt drive conversion for the NC!!!

But have you looked at the smaller Triumph bikes yet??
Dare I say it, but have you ever test ridden a Harley?? :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Funny you should mention that, a classic-owning friend also bought a 1977 Sportster recently and really enjoys riding it. A.

A few years back I had a Sportster 883, but it had had a 1200 conversion.
Went like a rocket!
Belt drive! Fantastic!! All bikes should have that instead of chains.
Only bike I've sold and wished I'd kept, to be honest.

But the VERY low GoG makes the bike push the front wheel under heavy breaking.
Takes a while to get used to that, and the singe disk I had really needed better/grippier friction pad material.
Also the Harley front tyre was useless and didn't help that push!!

as a seasoned Harley rider ,,,,,,,,, and have broke three drive belts ,,,,,, the chain in my mind is still the best !!!!!

as to braking you just shut the throttle ,,,,, engine braking and a little brake no problem ,,,,, if your a good rider :D :D :D
