"New Importer" ….?

I'd heard it was the Fury Group.  Can you confirm that?

The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Apparently the same as Louis Mountbatten’s launch in 1979.

I can't see a South African website yet but the news excites me as I am a little Triumph fanboy of sort.
The updated XCX sure seems like an awesome adventure bike. Mind you te 1200 is also an old favorite and then the range of Bonnieviles!

Pretty much like all Triumph's communications, past & present, it's who you know.

Nice. Their website needs a little work though, it shows their Cape Dealer in Cape Town, though they moved to Gasoline Alley a year back...
Will ring Wafieka to alert her....
Go Triumph, great to see the Brand back inaction, so to speak.
