    Test ride done, underpants changed and new leather jacket to break in. Bike should be coming end of this month. Apparently red is outselling all the others by miles.

    I can understand why the red is outselling the other colours, it’s a nice colour :)

    the guys at the shop kept asking me if I was sure I wanted a red one. I got the impression that if I had wanted a black or silver one I could have had it pretty much straight away.

    Which dealer are you getting your bike from mate? I ordered my silver and black one over three weeks ago and it does not get to the factory until the 10th April? Likely be a few days after that before I get it.

    Destination Triumph in Washington West Sussex. They had a silver one in the showroom which was for sale. The red one was the test bike.

    Wessa, if you know there is a bike in a showroom somewhere else the dealers sometimes ‘swap’ bikes with each other. My local dealer couldn’t get the bike I wanted and I found that Cheltenham Triumph had one being delivered. The two dealers (different owners) did a trade and my dealer went up to get my bike!

    If you do their job for them, you might get ur bike quicker.

    Huge demand is what I am hearing. Hope the factories are getting plenty of overtime out of this!
