How reliable are modern Triumphs?
Wife has her heart set on a Triumph Speedmaster.
I am all for it as long as it gets her out of the house. I have the cash, I found a bike in good condition. (2010 with 4500 miles.)
I was talking with my dad about her choice and he warned me off of it. said "There are only 2 bikes you see dead on the side of the road Harleys and Triumphs."
So my question is. Is his information outdated? I have asked a few other places and everyone has nothing but good to say especially after they swapped to FI. but i figured the hardcore nuts here might have a better real world view point.
