Just thought that i would keep all of you in the loop who have the Street Triple R spec on order like myself! I just rang my dealer, who had their Triumph rep in store, to try and get an update on the delivery date. He put me on hold for a short while to check with his rep, when he returned his words were, "I just spoke to the rep, and you can take it as straight from the horses (triumph) mouth, that they are expecting the demo bikes around early January... But your bike will arrive in either Jan or feb, and could even be here MID TO LATE DECEMEBER." DECEMBER DECEMBER DECEMBER!!! I couldn't believe what i was hearing, i really hope he is right as the wait has been soo long! I must admit though that i have had my order in since late july, so unless you orded this early there is every chance that your bike might not be until the jan/feb shipment. But thought you would all appreciate the insight! This all comes on the back of me talking to an american who said they also got told originally jan and their bike actually turned up in NOVEMBER!! This prompted me to call my dealer, and low and behold it looks like we might be enjoying an early delivery here in oz too!! I really do not know why they prioritised the USA over us, yes i understand that they are a much larger market, but the amount of comments i have read on international forums about people getting their new R spec with only a couple of weeks to enjoy it before the first snow fell and the have to garage it for a few months!?!? Painful to hear for us here in Aus awaiting our arrival to enjoy in our summer, but this is the way of the world hey. Good luck to all of you waiting and I'll see you soon on the roads!!!! GIDDY UP!!!
