My hubby rides a Triumph Trophy. Every time he needs work done on it, we have to wait 6 weeks or more for the parts to arrive from the UK because there aren't many of them around. Have been to a couple of mechanics hoping to get a quicker turnaround time, but still it takes that long. He thought he would get a way around that last time by ordering the parts in advance then bringing his bike in when they arrived, but when all the work had been done, we found his radiator was shot and so we are waiting (un)patiently again.... but he does love his bike and wouldnt even consider selling it. Do all Triumphs have the same problem with repairs because one day we are hoping to get a Thunderbird/America as a 3rd bike. His bike has been off the road for a total of 4 months in 2010 while we wait for parts, I'm fed up with it, really.
