I'm watching closely to see how this pans out.

I too was considering a Tiger, but think I'll consider something else now.

You've been about as patient as the manufacture could hope to deal with. I hope you get a resolution soon. Then we can have a tiger party in Utah this fall to celebrate!

And the plot thickens. As a new 800XC owner myself, I sincerely hope you're made whole.

Perhaps the dealer is tired of Triumph's stalling? Perhaps they feel they're getting too much of the heat that Triumph deserves for this? Perhaps by saying this, the dealer is forcing Triumph's hand?

I received an email in reply to my first saying that they wlil sort this out today. In my reply I said that Mr Arlint had been very patient and that I would have already taken legal acion and contacted Hinkley. I then asked what their attitude was and said if they were negative I would never buy a Triumph.

I mean this ... if head office won't look after you then there is no point in ever owning one. I await the outcome with interest.

Just sitting here waiting to hear the outcome . . . . This could be very bad or very good for triumph, We are their target market for the new line of adventure bikes.

You've been waiting months and now you are sweating minutes. I wouldn't hold them to a strict hourly timeline. Things come up. Maybe its taking longer to work out the details of your resolution, approvals, etc... Hang in there.

Is it possible that since this was a facebook response that the guy may not have your email or phone #?

They contacted me and the deal is underway. I will let the forum know the outcome as soon as the details are finalized! As for now. Triumph view in my mind is looking brighter. Which is great! because I love the tiger when it was running!

Glad to hear that things are looking up for you, and that Triumph is going to hold up their end of the deal.
