Hey Triumph guys,

I need to service the 800. Bike is out of warranty. Anyone here have any experience with Traditional Triumph in Edenvale and Triumph SA in Sandton? Or is it 6 of 1 and half a dozen of the other?

Or do I avoid both?  ;D
Oh when the Spurs, go marching in, oh when the Spurs go marching in, oh Lord I want to be in that number, oh when the Spurs go marching in.

Come on you Spurs.

Bike running again? What was the issue?

After a call to a communal friend, it's understandable why you cannot get through to Johan  ;)  the man emigrated to NZ a few months ago after having been poached by Honda  -  more brilliant skills lost  >:( Triumph Sandton was recommended = speak to Paul Jacobs, the workshop manager.

Nope...parked off. Engine Management System Light staying on...need to nurse it to Triumph so they can hook their fancy machines on and tell me what is going on. She is due a service as well so might as well do everyone at one time.

I phoned them and got their hourly rate....hold onto your socks...R720 ph. Might just be parking Lady Triumph until sometime later in the year.
