i went with a new bonneville for this reason. there are 6 dealers closer to me than the closest guzzi dealer. it also has 20hp on the guzzi. i think i made a good choice FOR ME. though i like the guzzi shaft drive better than the bonny's chain, and the guzzi is a damn beautiful ride.
Will your new Triumph require six dealers to keep it on the road?
