thanks...

The only ones grumbling are the BMW dealers.

My local BMW dealer thought I was out of my mind for even considering a Triumph. They and their elitist attitude. Oh, and problems with the 800GS? Naw, they've never, ever, had any problems with them. Plus, according to them, resale is just horrible on a Triumph, you can't hardly give them away.

Hmmm...go try to find a used one.

Yes, it's the BMW dealers that are grumbling.
