Must. Not. Put. Deposit. Down.

John Bloor (Triumph, 2010): "If you build a good product, your pricing is correct, and the quality is good, you always stand a fair chance"

Dr Herbert Deiss (BMW circa 2008-09): "BMW will continue to target the premium customer"

Must...Not...:becca

What?

You're a "premium customer", right?

:lol3

Everytime I go into a BMW dealer, they blank me.

Except sometimes 'the new guy' will inadvertently offer me a coffee.

This never happens twice.

BMW know better than to talk to a fat british biker with a french ex-wife. They know it didn't end well.

They know I'm not premium.

'They know I'm not premium.'
Ray, this isn't right! You were and you are a member of the Big-thread on this site and so you are: PREMIUM!
A firm, that copied and copies the beacon of our Big doesn't know better. Even if it resides in my country!
Best proof: They built the HP 2 (that put sleepless nights on me!) and stopped it just about 2 years after the start of it's production. Instead, they should have thought over the price!
Kind regards (and good luck to this new Triumph!), Bambi
PS: The Triumph 800 isn't quite my choice. I'd prefer a modernized African Twin from Honda. Or -even more - a more modernized Big from Suzuki!

You are a gentleman and a scholar :devildog

I loved that DR800 :nod

'I loved that DR800'
Hey Ray, I know!
I read through and I am part of this thread, too! Still ride that bike - can't afford a newer one and don't know, if I'd really want one!
Good night fellow, Bambi

I hear the mags and dealers will get to ride it in Phoenix in January. Not sure which hotel they will use. Dealers probably know. But anyone in the Phoenix area could find out and post pics.

I take a bit of a different view on that. If an inexperienced rider can take it through some difficult situations and feel confident to do it again, I reckon that makes for a good package thats easy to ride.

I think this has been mentioned, but just like the Street Triple, I reckon there is an upspec or "R" version in the works, probably late 2011 or early 2012.

Test Ride
 
Well, I'm good friends with the local Dealer here. I know that he is flying to Spain to-night for the dealer launch in Spain AND will be back on Saturday, so I will be giving him, oh, about 10 seconds on Saturday before getting on his case with details. :wink:

Hold your breath, and I will try and get s much info as possible.


:lurk

I was trying to figure out why he bothered going....Testing the XC on road only seems pointless:deal

I can only imagine the Triumph after event conversation.....Who invited this noob?

Looks like that reporter (with the leg dragging) was a little unsure :evil

Get some nice end cans on these and they'll sound awesome... :clap

Wow some nice leg out action going on there. I think its a bit of a stretch to use the term "reporter" or "journalist".

Nice video. They were moving at a pretty good clip on some of those dirt roads.
