Given you past history with bikes, this really is a great unexpected report. Don't get me wrong, I love the Triumph brand, especially the scrambler. Just did not think it would be this good.

Service intervals:
16,000km... low stressed motor.

Very nice bike RedWolf, and character in abundance!  :thumleft:

But eh, unless you do 50Kkm/year I'd say at least halve those intervals for the oil & filter changes?
Bit dusty here in Safferland, and I'm sure you can afford doing such  ;)

Nice RW, maar ek sou als tussen been en bike wou weg hê en die headers wou drop onderdeur en n can upswept aan die regterkant. Ek hou niks van die idee wat ek n warm pyp teen my binnebeen het nie.

Ek hou van die standaard  pyp routing en dink met CAT uit en ceramic coating gaan hy baie koeler loop. Die manne praat van groot drop in temperatuur.

If your last 15 bikes were all KTM's, no one should be surprised at you buying a real bike again. :pot: :pot:

Congratulations, it does look very cool, especially the colour. Classic.
