Get a triumph from them. That, obviously, is where you bought the GS to begin with. I just don't get why they had to replace the head gasket when it was the valve cover gasket that was leaking. Even a triumph tech could figure that out.

What will they be doing with the bike?

I am using an educated guess that it is 5 Valley so the choices are Honda or Yamaha. They have almost no used bikes at all so get a new Super Ten.

Ask them how much they want for that slightly used GS they just brought in.

Ami I the only one who's disappointed we won't get to hear whether you actually like the big GS after all the dust has settled?

I was only only able to ride it about 100 miles (test ride plus my first day riding), I liked it quite a bit. Even if I had waited for the bike to be fixed it would still be another 3 weeks before I would have it back, meaning sometime in July.

I may be on the lookout for a new leftover 2012 model, but at this point I am paralyzed by indecision on what to buy next. Some other odd choices are in the mix (2013 KTM Duke 690. a used 2009 RT1200T, nc700x, Concours 1400).

I am just bummed that I've been dumped in the middle of prime riding season with a limited selection of used bikes in the area.

Three words: Fly and ride! Buy from a reputable dealer like Max's and you're GTG.
